It's getting hip now after 60 minutes did a special on it. On
fascinating bit, that I admit had me more than a little jealous, was
a man who also sees colour when he hears music. Sounds kinda dull
until you find out the guy is BLIND!!!! They hooked him up to brain
scan equipment and saw that his visual cortex was indeed being
stimulated while he heard music. So... he was in effect truly seeing
with his brain, not his eyes. Fascin-f'in-ating! (if you'll pardon my
sailor speak!)

I sometimes have difficulty being around people who feel a certain
way. And by feel, I don't mean their emotions, but how I physically
can 'feel' the shapes they emanate. I once knew a minister of youth
that had the oilest slimy feel. That was a creepy situation. I've
also known people that seem to literally jab me with nails needles or
sharp things. It's so hard to keep myself calm around them. My fur is
on end! And certain sounds just drive me insane. Ringing phones are
like balls just flying right at me. And don't get me started on
vacuum cleaners. Argh. D says I'm like a cat when it comse to those

I bet people try to fake you out on the picture thing don't
they. "What am I thinking of now, huh?!" Then you can tell them what
obscene monsters they are and watch their eyes pop out?? =)
