    Just need a blower, slot cooler and a couple other goodies and I'd be in love!: peace:

    Yea, the human mind is a strange thing. If we had to look at every letter to read a word, reading would take FOREVER, but we grab the important parts of the word and assume we already know the middle letters.

    I saw a show on the learning channel a while back. (I watched because it was hosted by John Cleese who is a monty python guy)

    Anyways, roughly 30% of the brain is dedicated to sight, and almost HALF of that is dedicated to recognizing FACES! Isn't that insane? They had a guy on who had a tumor removed from his brain, and during the surgery apparently they harmed a crucial nerve in his brain, and so now he still has PERFECT vision, but he can't recognize ANYONE by their faces. Sounds dumb, but his brain lost its connection to his warehouse of faces, he can't remember any new ones, and he can't recall any ones from his past, and since all faces are almost identicle, he wouldn't recognize his family in public, unless they spoke to him and he recognized their voices.

    He would have to think, ok this guy is blonde, has a big nose, brown eyes, medium complexion, a mustache, and a few freckles, about 5'10" and then the guy would be able to say "that could be my son"

    Earier I said "all human faces are almost identicle" and they are. For example... to HUMANS, all ape faces look the same, but they look WAY different to the Apes. And DON'T think I am prejudice, but the show also said that for this reason, it is harder for white people to see the differences in faces of the chinese... and the chinese have the same problem with whites to some extent. We *can* do it, but it isn't as easy. This is why young kids sometimes say "why do all of (insert race here) people look the same. And I bet some of you will admit that you find some nationalities to look the same.

    Anyways, I found that fascinating.

    I saw the Eposides TWICE ..one year apart. The hostess was that beautiful Elizabeth Hurley. The show was called "the Human Face". A very fasinating show...teaches cool stuff like ZeraduL just explained.

    Yea, TLC and the History channel are tremendous channels. It is amazing to me how many shows they have... they can go 24/7 and I BARELY ever see a repeat. And everything is TOP notch.

    I don't watch that much, but it is still amazing
