    That isn't caused by "after blindness", but by the fact that the guys are still looking at her as they drive by. [​IMG]f

    That's a very interesting article, but I don't buy it for a second.

    i think their reasoning is wrong. if you're showing me boring pics of trees and buildings, then some robo-babe, i guarantee you i'm gonna remember the hottie and forget the freakin' tree.

    it's not that i went blind, it's that i stopped paying attention! [​IMG]

    you can trust me on that one ....

    yeah, I don't think they are saying you go blind per-say, but that it's more like your mind becomes fixiated on the provocative images even after it's out of sight.

    But a lot of things are like that. Music can take me 'away from the real world' for a brief second, so should we ban radios in cars? Very hot days can affect my concentration, so am I no longer allowed to drive during the summer?

    Yeah, I wasn't too impressed by the study - like Ted said, of COURSE you will fixate on the hot babe/torture scene. It's different and "novel". I think a better test would be having the test subjects play a video game, and flash these images at random intervals. A driving game would be a good candidate...

    I only manage to read every other word but enough to convince me it's a stupid study.
