Comment: Foresight and intuition. (Score 1) 228 228

Example, while driving home today, a bird flew low in front on my car, so I immediately slammed on my brakes.

Not for the bird, but for the kid being pulled into the street by the dog he was walking that started to chase the bird, that I predicted by being aware of the situation, knowledge of Labrador behavior, and the mass ratio of the dog and kid.

I 're'acted before the real hazard started moving, before child detecting radar could have.
