"A lot of people confuse the two. That BBC video highlights Change Blindness, which is far easier to understand and accept than Inattentional Blindness. You can find the most famous IB video here.
I don't want to go over the case bit by bit…"
"I have seen that piece on the case and I don't think people are, in general, saying the decision of the jury was wrong. From what I've read (in your link and elsewhere), the issue seems to be, why was the case not passed to the CPS? On…"
"From personal experience, I know how screwed up our justice system can be. I've seen the guilty walk free myself.
Not being in court, I can't really comment on this case. I just know, you can miss things, which I've actually done in…"
"It may seem hard to believe, but it is possible to miss things that are right in front of you. It's called, inattentional blindness.

"I'm a little surprised at people's view of Five ways Island. I frequently cycle round it, from all approaches, without any real issues. I take the lane and stay in it, in the same way I would if I was driving round it. It may annoy those…"
