    I'd say, "but it's only a theory!" in a whiny voice, if it wouldn't make me immediately want to punch myself.

    Well, there are sort of infinite different sets that can account for the same image, if you want to turn the wheel of the axioms along with all the rest. But yes, sun goes up and down behind the window, so there is a window and a sun, if you are human #1.

    So there's a pretty amazing cameo in Civil War, courtesy of the Russo brothers' previous work on Arrested Development.

    Spoiler takes two blocks to stop this thing :

    It bypassed one of the cones. Mice are dumb :(

    Which cone did it bypass? Am I falling for an optical illusion? (I'm colorblind, so I might have missed one. I see four successful cones, despite the knock-over)

    ^The pattern would include not just going infront of the last cone, but moving to the right of it prior of walking over/jumping the next hurdle :)
    (and actually it would be more natural if it started on the opposite direction in the first cone, cause now it would be more difficult to do the task as such)

    And yes, very impressive... :thumbsup:

    Although it did remind me of Flowers for Algernon :(

    But the test isn't whether he swivels after the last cone. It's whether he swivels on the next cone!

    ^Which now makes that final cone superfluous, though :) I have to suppose the intented test would have the mouse/what it is turn to the opposite manner past the first cone, so it would naturally pass the final cone by turning again so as to reach the following hurdle. As it now did, that last cone may as well have never existed.

    (unless part of the test is that the mouse should never move that way if there is only one cone left)

    Yeah, you're right. If the ring was the other shape, the last cone would seem less out of place. It's not superfluous, because the mouse still went on the correct side of it. But we're cognitively 'missing' a final zag, and it leaves us unsatisfied!
