Comment All your face are belong to Gyrus (Score 1) 47

I left my office one day and a guy walks up to me and says, "Hey, want a ride to your car?" and I stare blankly at this weirdo with a beard for what felt like minutes (probably around 10 seconds) filling in the time with my excellent improv skills, "Um, uhhh", scrunching my face up, he seemed excited or amused, "I'm parked across the street," he says, finally I realize it's my boss that I've worked with on a daily basis the past 2 or 3 years, and all day that very same day. That was before I realized "facial blindness" was a thing, and I think being aware of it has helped me improve quite a bit. Usually if I go with my instincts I'm right about 70% of the time, but the other 30% is not fun. In my defense it would really help if everyone stopped looking a lot like everyone else.

Brain Training Games Don't Train Your Brain 151

Stoobalou writes with this excerpt from "A new study has shown that brain training games do little to exercise the grey matter. Millions of people who have been prodding away at their Nintendo DS portable consoles, smug in the knowledge that they are giving their brains a proper work-out, might have to rethink how they are going to stop the contents of their skulls turning into mush."

Comment Re:One good thing about Creationism (Score 1) 848

With all due respect, it is perfectly clear to anyone not trying to reinterpret the theory to fit the data that it does say that the Earth -- and everything in it -- was created in six days.

It clearly has to be used as a reference point to delineate events. I say clearly because there could not have been a "day" before the earth or sun were created, yes?
