I’ve had an unfortunate little flurry of half-skulledness and noticed that all the recent episodes have occurred in close proximity to cheese. Being a good scientist, I’m going to start running experiments in removing things from my diet for a week. Hence: no cheese. It’s already impinging on my lifestyle; I’ve been standing in the kitchen trying to decide what to add to my turkey and mushroom tortilla roll-up for lunch.

I came to the computer for a) inspiration and b) to see if youtube had any videos of scintillating scotoma, so I can stop trying to describe it to people. It does— of varying quality. I think the two below come the closest to capturing mine (monochrome, usually a thin line surrounded by a sort of oscillating fan pattern— that second video is close enough to make me distinctly uncomfortable watching it).
