So, assuming everyone is the same as I am, I never knew it was possible to "see" anything when you close your eyes.
Aphantasia: Ex-Pixar chief Ed Catmull says 'my mind's eye is blind'
Most people can close their eyes and conjure up images inside their head such as counting sheep or imagining the face of a loved one.
But Ed Catmull, 74, has the condition aphantasia, in which people cannot visualise mental images at all.
Blows my mind.
Similarly, the comedian Jason Manford has a bit in his stand-up routine where he references bum wiping technique. Apparently, 50% of people do it stood up, and the other half do it sat down, and neither know the other half exist.
noun: bum; plural noun: bums
a person's buttocks or anus.
"if you sit there you'll get a cold bum"
synonyms: buttocks, bottom, cheeks, hindquarters, haunches, rear, rump, rear end, backside, seat; More
Anyway, I'm not going to ask how you wipe your bum (I used to be a stander, but now I'm a sitter after I saw someone do it in a movie, if you have
to know), but do you see anything when you close your eyes?
Hopefully not an image of me wiping my bum - I charge for that.

Spoofing all over the world

When I was a kid I could see all kinds of stuff in the dark.
Re arse-wiping, I suspect a lot of people don't bother much.
Especially once you take the desperate state of most people in the world into account. Also throughout "history", sanitation and "personal hygiene" would never be a priority, yet here we are.
Still don't understand how you can do it sitting down.

I usually tend to see random images. If I concentrate, I can change or manipulate them.
