I am sure that bad drivers drive every type of vehicle, although there is absolutely no excuse for a bus driver to cut off anyone. Specialized training and possibly carrying children?

There was a discussion regarding magenta on imgur, but I carelessly neglected to link the source! What kind of college man am I?!

I appended it to #2.

It seems weird to break up the text into blocks like that, instead of one long graphic. But I Loaded 9 More Images and still no mention of Magenta.

The Imgur post I finally shared in #2 did not involve magenta, people in the comments did, and the strangely-split-up images were screen captures of a crazy number of twitter posts.

I guess that I could have merged the screen shot into one long image, but why?

I didn't get that far. It appears to me a culture of people expecting thought to be packetized into 140-character blocks. I'm as big a fan of the TCP-IP stack as the next guy but those packets are a scaffolding for HTML which affords a richer communication medium. Then they chop it up again.

I think there is something strange about pink, too. Maybe I'll remember what.

livescience.com:Red-Green & Blue-Yellow: The Stunning Colors You Can't See

Quote:
Try to imagine reddish green — not the dull brown you get when you mix the two pigments together, but rather a color that is somewhat like red and somewhat like green. Or, instead, try to picture yellowish blue — not green, but a hue similar to both yellow and blue.

Is your mind drawing a blank? That's because, even though those colors exist, you've probably never seen them. Red-green and yellow-blue are the so-called "forbidden colors." Composed of pairs of hues whose light frequencies automatically cancel each other out in the human eye, they're supposed to be impossible to see simultaneously.
It turns out it's necessary to use 'image stabilization' which cancels out the saccades. Then an effect at the border between the two colors floods both of them. This reminds me of Geothe's Color Theory, were color comes from an interplay of black and white fringes. I think you can see these such colors in a sunset.

Quote:
Billock argues that Hsieh's study failed to generate the colors because it left out a key component of the setup: eye trackers. Hsieh merely had volunteers fix their gaze on striped images; he didn't use retinal stabilization.

"I don't think that Hsieh's colors are the same ones we saw. I've tried image fading under steady fixation … and I don't see the same colors that I saw using artificial retinal stabilization," Billock said. In general, he explained, steady eye fixation never gives as powerful an effect as retinal stabilization, failing to generate other visual effects that have been observed when images are stabilized. "Hseih et al.'s experiment is valid for their stimuli, but says nothing about colors achieved via more powerful methods."

This is your brain.



This is your brain on drugs.




Sorry. That's just what the title of the thread made me think of.

Okay, so now it's a problem?

What are the 50, 1,697 and 3,669? Quotes, .... and hearts? Are you Internet famous?

I am not Foone, I am Xist. See? It is on the left!

Fifty quotes, 1,697 shares, loved (saved?) 3,669 times, and then a button to sacrifice it to Cthulhu.

Opera does not like the name Cthulhu. It insists I misspelled "Cathlene."

Opera, what did Cathlene do to you and how long ago should you have gotten over it?

Small-f Freebeard, what is a problem now?

Ya. Foone equals sycophant. I can't copypasta the 'physical...eyes' thing out of your graphic. You'll just have to figure it out.

So the 1,697 is Shares. Is that recursive, showing re-shares and re-re-shares?

In Eye and Brain they talked about shining a narrow beam of light into the edge of the pupil. It opens, catches more light, contracts and catches less, in a steady rhythm. Then you can deduce how long it take the impulse to travel the optic nerve and back.

I cannot imagine that it is recursive.

I used Twitter briefly four years ago, although it seems longer. I worked for a brand-new bakery. In fact, I think I spent longer waiting to start than I actually spent working for them.

I was offered the job while applying to USAA. I wish that I had forgone this opportunity.

The owner's wife supposedly did all kinds of things to promote the bakery on Facebook, including posting four pictures.

Four?

That is not a large number!

I ran a Twitter page for the bakery. Whatever she posted I made fit into 140 characters, which I felt improved it vastly. When there were newspaper articles I posted them a day before she did. I followed every major company in town that I could find, hoping some of them would follow me. My sister did advertising for ten years and I kept asking her feedback.

Then they let me go and I stopped using Twitter.

It seemed that the rest of the Internet used clickbait to get you to load their page and their ads, but what I saw on Twitter was refreshingly concise and gave you the most important details, while linking the full article.

Twitter still sends me updates, nonsense about moments and what people that I do not know shared. It is weird when they tell me that some news outlet's tweet made the news.
