a fun fact

every time you dart your eyes around, not only does your brain automatically erase the data of "that smeared blur i saw for a moment", it also takes what you see when your eyes stop moving and retroactively inserts it as a memory for that moment. that's why if you look at your watch, it seems to take longer for the second hand to tick the first time

human senses are garbage

@monorail also it's a shame the second hand on my watch just slides along then, it has nothing to retcon so all I see is a fluid moving second hand
