    Thanks for posting that. I saw that experiment in a different clip awhile back. I love it. Almost got me the first time. I'm going to have to run it by my staff and see how they do. Maybe a new form of annual performance evaluation?

    Wow. That caught me completely off guard. It's nothing new, though; tunnel vision from concentration is something pretty common. This comes from paying too much attention to one thing, at the cost of general awareness.

    But, to be perfectly fair...that gorilla is black - the same as the players you're not paying attention to. I would bet that if you brought in someone wearing, say, a tiger suit, the results might change a little! Plus, being on YouTube, the picture is small and grainy...

    OK, enough excuses, time to work on awareness.

    Salute,
