It sounds like Mr Darwin sir has finally discovered Netflix...  lol:

The challenge takes the core concept of Bird Box wearing a blindfold at all times while wandering around outside and applies it to a certain period of time. Some people, like YouTube creator Morgan Adams, have tried to go about their daily lives for 24 hours while blindfolded, while others have attempted the challenge for a shorter period.

So there are idiots out there who have decided to take up the challenge of going about their usual day while wearing a blindfold, anyone want to give an estimate on how long it will be before this goes horribly wrong...  noooo:

Blind people will win that one for sure...  noooo:

Trying to hypnotise a charging elephant....  noooo:

Once again I suspect that a world changing Nobel Prize winner has not been lost here.
Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.

Leave pasta on the worktop for 5 days and then eat it? Whatever you were studying I'm pretty sure it wouldn't lead to a Nobel prize...  noooo:
