    This is amazing! Make sure to take the test at the bottom link!

    Aviation Blind spot test.

    I found this absolutely fascinating. Do the test at the end & watch
    the spots disappear.
    It is not a joke. Have you ever been driving along and suddenly
    someone you didn't see (another car, a motorcycle/bicycle, or even a
    person) is right in front of you?

    And wonder "How did I miss seeing that?" Here is the answer.
    US Naval Aviation Instruction confirms that NOT focusing for too long
    on one thing in traffic could save a life or two...
    It works exactly like it says, and is one major reason people in cars
    can ‘look right at you’, when you're on a motorcycle or bicycle, AND
    An Instructor explains " This is a great illustration of what we were
    taught about scanning outside the cockpit when we went through
    training. We were always told to scan the horizon for a short
    distance, stop momentarily, and repeat the process. I can remember
    being told why this was the most effective technique to locate other
    aircraft. It was emphasized (repeatedly) to NOT fix your gaze for more
    than a couple of seconds on any single object. The instructors,
    veterans with years of experience, instructed us to continually "keep
    our eyes moving and our head on a swivel" because this was the best
    way to survive, not only in combat, but from peacetime hazards (like a
    midair collision) or road safety as well."
