I only got as far as "How big something appears to you depends on the size of the bra" before I clicked the link. I was disappointed.

Anything bigger than a handful, you're risking a sprained tongue.

I wonder what goes on in the brain of the smartass who knows what the illusion is and doesn't play along.

So my penis could be bigger and my ass could be smaller than I'm actually perceiving them to be?

WooHoo! Thanks, subby! You've made my day!

I uncrease the bill, tenderly as you may imagine, it just having come from between the two smoothest scoops of vanilla I had ever known were there, and pass a half and a penny into her narrow pink palm, and nestle the herrings in a bag and twist its neck and hand it over, all the time thinking.

Made me think of this. Each organ is scaled to it's sensitivity.

Not just brain size, but brain activity results in radically different subjective reports of distance, length, weight, and size. For instance, after physical exhaustion (which requires a lot of coordinated activity by the brain) some people will report the slope of a hill or the weight of an object to be steeper or heavier than the same person viewing the same stimuli during a less fatigued state. It is really cool how perceptual systems in the brain operate.
