Yes it is unoriginal....but I don't know the answer and she said nothing was off limits. I'm guessing they give it X number of wipes and call it good.

6 wipes usually does the job and if I'm ill or unsure follow up with a baby wipe or two

RE: Ask a Blind Girl!
Do you feel a 'presence' when someone enters the room? I've experienced this myself and people always write it off as shadows or something sight-related.

Also, do you like roller coasters? I don't think I would if I didn't have some idea of what was coming.

RE: Ask a Blind Girl!
This is a probably a nonsensical question, but since you haven't been blind from birth and know what it's like to see, what would you say are you 'seeing' now?

Edit: There's another one that really interests me. Since we do not actually use our eyes to see things 'in our head', are you still able to 'see' your dreams?

Sometimes I can sense presence, but mor often than not I'll just hear you. No matter how quiet someone is the do fidget and I can hear the rustle of clothes or jewelry.

As for roller coasters I ride them, it's a hydrocephalus thing. Fluid flux in my head to quickly and I pass out.

Yes I'm quite able to see in my dreams. Listen to Laurie Rubin: Do You Dream in Color

As far "seeing" my mother is half asleep on the couch watching ID Discovery. Someone has probably just run a light a few blocks from here. And the porch cat is yowling to be let in.

On mobile I use a perinstalled program called Voice Over. On PC I use a keyboard active navigation program called JAWS.

I could be wrong, but I think he is asking what you literally see. Even if not, I would still like to know.
What do you see? Is it just blackness or like that sparkly glitter that I see when it's too dark to see? What can you see? Do you actually see light or do you just know it's there because it hurts your eyes?

RE: Ask a Blind Girl!
How do you think your imagination compares with someone who has been blind since birth? I've always been curios if people who have never been able to see would have any sort of visual experiences like being able to imagine colors and such. I don't know if you can answer this or not but it's an interesting question.
