blind test ....
« on: January 18, 2021, 02:14:05 AM »

salut la compagnie !

this idea of a blind test follows a recent encounter in the streets of paris
I took the hand of a blind man who was crossing the street...
he was heading to a metro station nearby...
i asked him if it was difficult to get around in the metro..
he told me that he knew all the stations in the montparnasse area by heart..
including the stairs the corridors etc..
he was in his 50ties and had been born blind ....
we talked about science fiction books , and i was surprised that he had read Azimov and K Dick in Braille:!!
I left him at Raspail metro station

back home i immediately tried to boomerang blinfolded
and it worked right away

have you ever tried ?

it would be a super fun video challenge
no cheat
1mn of playing top blinfolded

how about that
anybody in ?

Just to be clear, the plan is for the blind part to be only before the throw?
