so I can continue to update Tap and communicate with my other friends in the wilderness (we'll all probably be in different wildernesses or I'd suggest we band together).
Well, is the Silo fireproof? Or would that not be any protection against god's fire? Just askin'. [Image Can Not Be Found]

What are all those poor folk going to do on May 22nd? I mean, when they realize judgement hasn't occurred and they realize they've sold all their possessions.
Sometimes I wonder ... if dolphins had opposable thumbs ... I'm not so sure homo sapiens would rule the roost.
If being wrong's a crime I'm serving forever
My beloved Aud (welcome back!) pointed me to http://www.faceblind.org/facetests/ when I told her about faceblindness. She tested skinny end of the success curve (86%), I was uhoh call a neurologist (56%) and a friend perched atop the bell (78%). I'm curious where FFC readers test because I want to confirm my guesses. [Image Can Not Be Found] Personal information is required to take the test as it is part of a research project.
More generally, I'm curious if other FFC folk have any brain oddities like synesthesia wherein the senses are more connected than normal. Letters have specific colors, musical notes have smells. There are infinite and very personal variations. Many go through life without knowing only they taste the letter Q as barbecue ribs. Nabokov had this condition. Quite a few of the most celebrated artists in all fields do; the cross-wiring seems to push metaphor creation. It can also be crippling. Being engaged to a guy whose name smells like rotten eggs, that's a problem.
There are many other brain strangenesses so if you feel comfortable, step up and share yours. There's no wrong, only different. I'm poor with faces, worse with names, but recognize handwriting I saw decades ago.
grooowrrrr! [menace menace] rrrrowwwr!
75%. In real life I find myself better with faces than names, because I'm usually thinking about other things when people introduce themselves. I need to stop doing that.
Synaesthesia always seemed like kind of a super-power to me, though I know that some who have it would beg to differ. Me, I am unremarkable. I have no such oddities, aside from being generally odd.
Life is the misery we endure between disappointments.
It was Oliver Sacks and Chuck Close discussing coping strategies early last year when I learned of faceblindness. They're both severe sufferers.
94% Scout? I guessed you high but that's getting into super powers. You need a synaesthesia super taster side kick to help you solve crimes. "Boss, no, this dust is secretly bitter. Bitter like guilt!" followed by the camera zooming into your head for a montage of your brain clicking through a transparent display of faces until a gunsight snags the perp. "Come with me! Move out!"[gunfight, seemingly suicidal Scout dropping his vest and talking perp into dropping weapon]
After the final commercial break, "How'd you know boss?" and your closing line, delivered hand on his shoulder, "Sometimes you have to see the way. Now let's get that drink."

99% – I missed one. About midway through I realized that my eye was going directly to the one that I recognized. [Image Can Not Be Found]
Out of 72 faces, you correctly identified 71.
In other words, you got 99% correct.
our previous version of this test, the average person with normal face
recognition was able to recognize about 80% of the faces. If you
correctly identified less than 65% of the faces, this may indicate face
I am much, much better with faces than names. Most likely due to inattention when introduced to new people. I probably wouldn't do as well with the famous faces simply because I'd have to associate a name with the face.
I can also recognize famous voices. I catch myself doing it during commercials or animated movies where the credits aren't listed until the end.
