    Nooooooooo … it’s way worse than this! “Readers don’t read” comes closer to the ugly truth.

    You know … looking at the two images together (I posted to my MozDawg blog) … the effect of the face is dramatic. Really. Massive, actually. (When I was doing cog-psych at Dal I initiated a VRML project with my ethology prof; that sequed into a proprosal for research into facial expression. It never went anywhere but woa, are we ever susceptible!)
