+1 for reference, subs.

So is posting late news from a news aggregater, to another aggregater, after some time a new way of consuming news I am unfamiliar with? I haven't been on fark for a while but it seems particularly egregious on my first day back.

I got one out of three. And I'm having fun practicing one of the others.

They are forcing me to chew bubble gum, but I'm all out of bubble gum. What else can I do?

So are our eyes, and our brains, agents of conformity, or just efficient processors of information?

Well the eyes are impartial reporters, but the brain is the editor. I'm sure the former plays a part, probably an increasing-as-we-get-older part. I still think the latter is the real reason, though. If you sketched a cup from directly above, it'd just be a circle and a line since that's a 2-d perspective. Seems to me that drawing it from a 45 degree angle gives the most information and is thus the most efficient way to make it recognizable.

"Former" and "latter" refer to the line I quoted, not eyes/brain. That seemed a little unclear after I posted it.

I think the author just proved that a lot of people draw things using symbols.

45 degrees is not a proper isometric drawing. Goddamned uneducated are ruining it for the rest of us

Well, when your political ideology completely subverts science then yes, someone who lives in an age of marketization might be stupid enough to think that OBEY, CONSUME, PROCREATE is a product of genetics, or something like that.

Do you actually still use paper and pencils on a drafting table?

Only for preliminary sketches to figure out what we're looking for. Once that's done it's time to fire up Revit and play around with massing models.

Cool.  As a renovator with a design background, I'm often bidding from other's drawings, but a couple of times a year I need to draw up some plans.  It's old school all the way, here!

Step one in participating in any study is to think "What can I do to skew the results if there's a psych major behind this."

We have one more point of data to screw with them from. If asked to draw something it's impressionist time. Draw a cup of coffee? That's a cloud of electrons stirring around a mule. And if in doubt, bacon.

You cut your jib quite well, sir.

Chances are, most people have the cup in the same place where you have it.

I wonder if they selected for left or right handedness.  Those cups with the handle to the right are for people to drink with there right hand.  I had the image of a cup with the handle to the left in my head reading about the cups before seeing the pick in the article, and it was a little jarring seeing them all pointing right..

OBEY and then CONSUME, in that order, I expect?

FTFA "I have a set rule to never do anything a psychologist asked me to do. "

So your conditioning is holding up, I see.

It's time to kick bubblegum and chew ass, and I'm all out of ass.

They probably got what is easier to find on the interwebs. I have a ton of cup drawings, the look-at-it-while-you-draw-it-from-unusual-angle type (as opposed to draw-it-from-your-mind's-eye type) and most don't look like those cups at all.

But this is only because the how-to-sketch book I'm going through right now emphasizes drawing-as-you-look. If I'd had to draw it from "my mind's eye" before I read THAT book, I'd probably drawn it the way I usually see it in other people's pictures, that is, from the side, slightly below line of sight, with the handle on the right.

I'm immune to this.  I was once asked by a website to draw a pig.  Everyone, and I mean everyone, drew the pig with it's snout facing the artist.  I drew the pig in profile.

You sure didn't draw the view from behind? I mean, a curly tail is pretty identifiable...
