Color Fatigue Demo

[[MENTION:72265]] will love this.

Keep your eyes pinpointed only on the dark spot in the center. When the flashing stops, try to stay focused on the spot, and see how long it takes your rods and cones to return to normal.

Of course, the background is uniformly gray throughout. Use at your own risk. Vestiges may last several minutes in older gents like me. Have a rosy winter!

And we hear you've got the smoke to prove it. What I saw on tv would finish it for me. I'm so sorry.

@Musicvid - Loved! Job done.

RETINAL FATIGUE (This isn't DayTime TV . . maybe it should be!)

If you budding Ophthalmologists' wish to perplex your parents, loved ones, pets or attentive audiences trawl through this:

And then, if you have the stomach for it:

I'm counting down to how long our esteemed Moderator shovels-off this fascinating Visual anomaly to the place of Topic-Off 😉

Maybe this is the End-Of-Year contender for the MODERATOR-FATIGUE extended-Post?

@Grazie maybe just normal fatigue. It was 3:54 AM here when @Musicvid posted Thanks for pointing this out.

Once again making the case for editing only two hours at a time before doing something normal -- or moderating, for that matter.

In fact, I was sound asleep at the time and for several hours still after that. I don't think that even a moderator can be here 24/7/365 and survive.
