The two brained man - the dodgy experiment! [Jul. 18th, 2009|06:59 am]

There's something in this video that strikes me as being a little odd.

The test subject is being asked to focus on a small plus sign in the middle of a screen, and images are shown to the left and right of the plus.

It's an experiment to show how the left and right sides of the brain interact, and process stimuli differently.

It didn't make sense to me - I froze one of the test images, and looked at the plus - I then closed my left eye, and I could see both images in my peripheral vision. I closed my right eye and opened my left, and I could still see both pictures - it's quite obvious!

The only way this experiment would work correctly is if a piece of card was placed from the plus on the screen to the viewers nose. That would prevent each eye seeing both images, and then I could believe the experiment.

In this instance - the subject can easily see both images, so I think it's acting! (Though I've read elsewhere that the symptoms they talk about are real - again they didn't prevent both eyes from seeing both pictures, so this experiment is dodgy in the least.)

What do you think?

Truth or fiction? [Jul. 18th, 2009|09:17 am]
"The total amount of androgens in women is estimated to be about 71% of that of men, which is a level much greater than previously believed."

What happens when a trannie posts semi nude pictures in a non trannie space? [Jul. 18th, 2009|08:19 pm]

There's a Reddit sub-reddit called "GoneWild", a place for nakie pictures of the members.
How do people react when two semi-nude pictures of a trannie are posted?

Find out here... (nsfw)

Get a friend to make a noise. [Jul. 18th, 2009|08:51 pm]
Close your eyes, and ask a friend to click their fingers in different locations around the room.
Try and point to the source, and say how far away they are.

Now, push your ears back against your head - but keep your ear holes clear, and try the experiment again.

How much better/worse is your spacial ability now?
