What question did they use? "Does this dress make my butt look big?"

I was in VFR air traffic control, where we learned to make quick and correct decisions.

The key was to never lock up. If you gave a bad direction you could give better ones. If you locked up there were no directions, good or bad. In the sims I'd regularly watch n00bs freak out, and one time I had to give a go-around to a pilot who had forgot to put his gear down over the runway.

In college, there was this crazy, fat chick who wanted to go out with me. She thought by putting out, I would date her. I posed the question to myself, "Do I want to get laid?" It was a quick decision.

this is the perfect thread for me to make a comment in, I better get in really quick though before anyone else makes the same funny (yet profound) statement I was going to make. No time to read the other posts, or TFA. No tmie to check spelling just press send.

Was it not accurate?

If this Gizmodo article is anywhere close to accurate, the scientist(s) involved have a pathetically limited and outdated outlook on consciousness and the decision making process.

my gf does both. and, unfortunately, expects everyone else to be able to as well.

I had to get strapped into an orbitron and have rapid fire questions shouted at me. Get it wrong, speed increases, get it right and velocity remains the same. The human brain adapts very quickly... quite a few lives are still being led due to that training.

The correct colours would be blue and yellow.

I've told many people before, "Do you want it right or right now."

They always expect both but usually choose "right now".

I bet it's possible with training. Like patting your head and rubbing your belly.

So, I guess the filter not only replaces it with boobies, but puts your post down near the bottom. Huh. If only I had taken the time to stop and consider that.
