Maybe it Should Be, "Tell, don't show."

I found this link through Very Short List. Usually, this blog is about things that we forget with the passage of time, but today I'm posting about what we forget in a few seconds. The following test was a research experiment to see how well people remembered things visually. Apparently not too well.  The experiment is over, but they've left the game up. I'd say it's fun to play, but actually it's slightly exasperating. I didn't really find it a test of memory so much as reminder of how little I see in the first place.  Anyway, go knock yourself out. (They ask a few questions first, but as it is no longer 'data', I suppose you could lie if it made you feel better.)
