On What You'll Never Know
The NY Times Opinionator blog just finished a fascinating series on Anosognia, which is a condition where you are unaware of what should be an obvious fact. It contains fascinating anecdotes, such as a bank robber that believed lemon juice would conceal him from video cameras, and is an interesting commentary on the human condition. Definitely worth reading, or at least skimming for the good bits, for those with the patience to read through a five part series. It has some obvious tie-ins with politics, though I'll leave specific instances to others.
