An interesting site that shows how the human eye can totally miss seeing things (SMIDSY).

I've been a yellow dot a few times and it isn't fun.
Keep it upright and she'll always be happy!

I love this sort of stuff. The most useful phenomenon is that your motorcycle will go where you are looking. If you look at the pothole in front of you, you will hit it. If you look to the side where you want to go, you will miss it.
