Monochrome / Tadpoles & Colour Vision

How cool are these tights? I'm a bit worried about wearing them about now I'm back in Australia - I've already had some "hilarious" comments from random seedy men about how I accidently put on odd tights HAHA (you're all so original) :| - as people seem to think they're a little bit odd.
But then I remember that you should always dress for yourself, and if people find you strange or amusing, well, you're just making the world a more interesting place.

In science news today, researchers in America were able to transplant eyes into tadpole's tails, and through nervous connection with the spinal cord, the tadpoles were able to see. Through their tails. The tadpoles were able to distinguish not only light and dark through their tail-eyes, but different colours as well. The researchers wanted to look at the ways that the brain can adapt to new signals, or signals coming from unexpected places. This is suuuper important stuff in designing prosthetic eyes for people who are blind, or types of blindness where the the eye functions fine but the brain "misreads" the information coming in from the eye. Read more about it here.

I hope you're all very well!

  9. Oh my goodness, those tights are so cool! I can't see much of the necklace, but I really love that too. I love what you said about dressing for yourself, rather than to please others. :)

  10. Those tights are awesome!You can always find the coolest tights in Japan. I always make sure to buy a lot of tights whenever I am there (which sadly is not often because I am poor T_T)

    And the guys who say those rude comments are just probably jealous that they can't rock those two colored tights ^^;
