There's a kid in my son's special needs class that can do that shit.

Let's just say I won't be bringing my son to Vegas for that purpose anytime soon.

But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Many many years ago I was at a friend's birthday party and there was a jar like this. I knew it was a lot, but only guessed 100. Nobody else guessed higher than that! Hobo Of course, I shared the jelly beans. There were something like 250 in there.

I really don't give a shit how many are in that jar. What really matters is that I want all the black ones. Shy

I get to decide what my life looks like, not the other way around.

"One time I went to a craft fair, and I see a jar of jellybeans, it said "Guess how many jellybeans are in the jar, and you win a prize." Aw, come on, man. Let me just have some. I'll tell you what, you guess how many I want, if you said "a handful" you are right."

-Mitch Hedberg

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

i.e.

Like if you look at a group of objects and automatically know how many there are without counting. You know what the number "looks" like.

For instance, you see three dogs. You don't have to count them because you recognize what three dogs look like.

I've noticed mine goes to about seven before I have to count the objects.

Hopefully, I'm explaining this coherently.

Yup, and seven is the typical limit, although if things are grouped quick recognition of a larger number is possible.

RE: Is this a "thing"?
I'm inclined to think we can better estimate an even number of "things" rather than an odd number—at least for everyday groups of stuff. Like a dozen eggs; if there were eleven or 13, would we guess as consistently? (Assuming of course that they're not in a regular carton.)

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
