xkcd: Connoisseur - 人を強制的に「目利き」にする方法

白ハット: How do you stand this cheap wine?

男: Wine all tastes the same to me.

白ハット: You've just never had good wine. If you paid more attention, you'd realize there's a whole world here.

男: But that's true of anything! Wine, House music, fonts, ants, wikipedia signatures, Canadian surrealist porn - spend enough time with any of them and you'll become a snobby connoisseur.

白ハット: But some things do have more depth than others.

男: If you locked people in a box for a year with 500 still frames of Joe Biden eating a sandwich, by the end they'd be adamant that some were great and  some terrible.

白ハット: You're exaggerating.

男: Oh, really?

[A year later:]

男: Sure, most closed-mouth frames are boring, but in #415, the way the man's jaw frames the mayo on his hand is pure perfection and -

白ハット: What a surprise. You praising a mayo frame. Listening to you, I'd think there was nothing else in the sandwich.

Frankly, the light hitting J.B's collar through the lettuce would put #242 in my top ten even if he had no mayo on his hand at all.

alt-text: Our brains have just one scale, and we resize our experiences to fit.





 あと、右のフレーズが上手く訳せず。「the way the man's jaw frames ...」
