Oh how the world would be changed if there was a superhero that could detect magnetic fields...

Also: What noxert323 said:

We also have electromagnetic receptors, but we don't know what they do.

[quote">We can detect magnetic fields?[/quote">

It was discovered a little while ago, but this infographic is stretching it. It's proven that humans have the relevant genes. It's proven that electromagnetic fields can affect human vision, so there's something in our eyes that is sensitive to magnetic fields. It's not proven that humans can actually detect magnetic fields, though it does seem possible.

Yes we can, no we can't

I seriously doubt that humans have a "startling accurate sense of time". None of these researchers has ever waited for my wife to get ready to go some where. HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAA!!!!!

you have light receptors on the back side of your knee,

We also have electromagnetic receptors, but we don't know what they do.

I can honestly say I have always had a way of feeling what the time is. Some days I don't even check a clock and can still grasp how much time has passed. I guess it must have to do with the "body clock", or perhaps just because of routine activities.

I can safely say that I have no sense of time unless I have a phone and a watch

I must have extremely high blood glucose, I can only breath throught the right nostril due to a broken nose.

I want to know if the breathing through the nostril one at a time thing is true- because it would totally explain why only half my nose is plugged at a time when I'm sick
