I love to learn new stuff even if it's irrelevant at least he's doing something positive with his time vs being negative. If you don't like to learn then meh be a curmudgeon.

Like Mom used to say... keep doing that with your eyes and they are going to stick that way....

No wait.. that wasn't it... I think it had something to do with going blind... oh nevermind.  :o

I've been able to cross one eye for years. Can do it with both eyes. So can make them swing weird at will.
This twisting thing? Gonna have to work on that!

Interesting reactions to the video (or me posting the video) :)

Perhaps my subject line was too click-baity, or too cutesy.  Perhaps I should have used a more descriptive subject line, such as "News to me:  Human eyes can move in rotation around visual axis".

That said, asking "who cares" suggests crossing a threshold that made posting that remark worthwhile.  Perhaps to educate me so I don't post uninteresting stuff.   Ignoring a post, or taking a look without comment is actually the most effective form of expressing disinterest.

I watched the video this morning, and "rolled my eyes", but only because of the viewpoints of the person who made the video.  Can't go into further detail without violating forum rules. 

Some folks don't even "tap the brakes".  Been looking for another airgun forum the past week, but it looks like they are all pretty much the same.

Yes, Ken

I watched a few more videos by the same maker.  Got to saturation pretty fast.   Was tempted to leave a comment about how one video seemed to disprove one of his deeply held scientific foundations, expressed in several of his other videos.  Then decided to leave it.

I don't have to agree with every view, or enjoy all aspects of a given video, to be informed by the fundamental factoid that our eye also rotate about their visual axis.  That, I was not aware of before.  I thought that single bit of info might also amuse folks here.  I don't endorse his explanation, why, nor am I going to explain why not.

If you focus on airgun specific info, then GTA is one of the best ones out there.

I spend too much time on the forum, and not enough time shooting...
