I've been memed by Jason.
I never saw it coming. (Foreshadow alert!!)
The task: If you were a scientist designing the first bionic human, what would you improve upon, and how?
Let me ask you: What do you most fear in life? If you're anything like me, it's sneak-attack wedgies, wet willies, and the dreaded rear-admiral. With our visual capacities set up the way they are, we have a severe limitation of range that leaves us far too susceptible to these aforementioned sneak-attacks. What we need are the eyes of certain all-seeing fish. Not all-seeing in the all-knowing sense of God, but all-seeing in the sense of eyes that are located on the side of the head and can see forward and backward. As it is now, we must walk around risking whiplash as we spin our heads this way and that in a preventative fashion.
Of course, this will only reduce the number of occurrences of "sneak-attack" wedgies, wet willies, and the dreaded rear-admirals. Wedgies, wet willies, and the dreaded rear-admiral will still live on, to the delight of all.
Now memed: Brad, Mattias, Rob, Cher.
