I noticed her. I`m special! I also counted 14 passes, so I`m not too bright.

I counted 12, and noticed someone come in with some sort of a big black head and doing a wing motion. Even the seccond time, they didnt look like a fly.

Ha Ha I`m a moron. I`ve seen something like this before (but with a guy in a bear suit, a bear suit!) so I knew not to count, and to look for something odd. I found it, there`s a mannequin in the back cut in half...so I completely missed the bee...moron! ;-)

I counted 12 and noticed somthing walking in. I just didn`t know it was a fly. I went a display in a museam about inatentive blindenss and they had a very cool experiment where one thing in a picture showing a city block would change and you have to notice it. It was pretty hard.

I counted 12, and I remember seeing someone step into the screen the first time I saw it - I didn`t think anything of it though.

I saw the Fly thing but I counted 15, maybe I lost count or mixed them up, that`s probably why I saw it.

I counted 11...and it was kinda a guess because I lost track of the box at one point and had to guess which one was it. >_<

Richard Hammond is well into his 30s for all you teens out there findingn him adorable because he`s short. He also whores himself out as a presenter, I think he`s doing three programmes at once now.

they stole this whole god damn show from the history channel. the history channel did the exact same thing about FOUR YEARS AGO, except the bee was more obvious and a bear. they should quit jacking other peoples work and do their own poo.

I COUNTED 15 PASSES TOO! Weird.

That was very interesting. I give myself credit for noticing that someone else walked on the screen, lol....albiet they were in a freakin` bee suit.

Weird..


I thought I was more observant than that.

I like that weird sensory trickery stuff. ^.^

"11 and i ended up counting the wrong box, didn` tsee her but thats only cuase my eyes were focused on the box and not hte other ppl moving around not because of a brain overload."

That`s exactly what inattentivie blindness is. It`s not seeing something because your attention was focused on something else. It`s not "brain overload". Your visual cortex doesn`t just shut down or something.

Yes that is Richard Hammond of Top Gear fame, he also does Brainiac (Sky Tv Production) and has his own show on ITV each weekday at 5 o`clock.

Hammond and Clarkson are well funny

I remember watching this on the TV and I noticed the bee first time. Then my dad watched it, didn`t notice first time and even when it was pointed out that there was a bee he still didn`t notice!! Talk about stupid.

dammit I was watching the wrong box. I don`t care about the bee I care about the box. There were yellow boxes too which I didn`t realise till the second time round.

Hah, I saw her but I couldn`t count the passes properly. I`ve already seen something like that before, so I expected her anyway.

I only watched cause I saw this while it was on tv, I never noticed the fly when I caught it then so I just wanted to make sure it was really there the first time and they didn`t just say it walked through to mess with me.

Not that many people notice her because they`re looking at the box when it`s high in the air, while that girl that walks by is short. It takes your attention off of the middle of the screen towards the top....

Huh, that`s funny; I`d be in the < 10%. I counted 12 passes and I noticed the extra person shaped blob on the screen. :-D
Didn`t realize what it was that she was doing until the second time though.
