I had two things that I wanted to say and so I don't forget about them I'll post them both at once, even though they are not related at all with one another.
First off, I think there may be a lot we can learn about the brain if we study what happens when people are on LSD:
How can our brain override what our eyes see and replace it with what it thinks? How much of the world do we actually see in reality then? Also how can two people get on the same trip? It seems like there is more to the brain if we unlock it, and LSD could be a key...
Woah... that kinda sounded like a hippie thing to say...
More LSDness here here and here.
And now for something completely different:
You know the bars that they put with music that goes up and down based on how loud different frequencies are? Well, one of my biggest pet peeves is when they make fake ones that move, but are just image loops. There is one at the K-State football games that pops up from time to time on the jumbotron that fills in the word "LOUDER". It doesn't matter how loud the crowd is, the bars fill up the same way each time. Myspace and Quicktime also has the fake bar graphs in their programs. It is so annoying. Stop making them already, they serve no purpose. Geez.
