    Do you see what others see?

    Watch this movie, count how many passes the people in the black shirts make. Then post your result.

    I've seen others, but I completely forgot about that type of experiement until the woman tried to dodge the basketball around the gorilla - the biggest giveaway. Then it all came flooding back to me.

    I watched it twice and I still can't come up with 18 passes. I see only 14. It's an interesting study in focus, though, as I was entirely following the ball and could easily mistake the sasquatch guy for just one of the other folks dressed in black. Had to take my eyes off the white shirts to see him, which is why I had to go through it a second time, just to count the passes again because I only came up with 14.

    Re: Do you see what others see?

    I was able to push my count to 15 if I count the fact that the first guy to touch the ball catches it on a bounce from somebody, though you never actually see who throws it to him. I have now counted four times, and I still see only 14 or 15 depending on that first one. I also counted the (illegal) dribbling moves, but that put me up into the 20+ range.

    And then I re-read the original post and realized that I have been counting the white shirts not the black shirts. Oops.

    They actually seem to know how to handle the ball in this video.
