Heh, hopping onto the Neologism bandwagon ^^

BLOOPER:

Come to think of it, I can think of one group of persons that is unlikely to experience fawry and one group that can't experience it at all.

Is seeing something relevant? hearing? smelling? tasting? touching?

Can it happen anywhere? Anytime?

Do you see an object? If you, animate? inanimate?
a person? a situation? a picture of something?

Can it happen indoors? outdoors?
At your house? someone else's house? school/uni? work? a shop? a public place?

Can be many things, but usually, it's an inanimate object

Can it happen indoors? outdoors? Both, with outdoors being more likely
At your house? someone else's house? school/uni? work? a shop? a public place?
Can be any of these under the right circumstances, but out of these, somebody's house might be least likely. But as I said, it's more likely to happen outdoors than indoors.

Do you have to be driving or riding in a car? in some other mode of transportation (e.g. a train)?

The thing you see--is it a sign of some type? an indicator/signal of some type, for example a traffic light?

Is it connected with a movie or TV program that you've watched?

I'll broaden this: Is it a cerebral connection, and not a reminder of food or drink?

[Oh, lord. Not to leave anything out: a bit of graffiti on a nearby wall always has my boyfriend singing songs about farts, and that led to our favorite Miami Herald columnist, Carl Hiaasen. (His name is pronounced HIGH-a-sin, but it's often mis-pronounced HIGH - ASSIN', hence the jokes that my bf is utterly unashamed of.)]

And, of course, this private information is to go no further than this board. Fiona said, innocently.

Seeing things in general...

Is being short-sighted or far-sighted relevant?
Are sunglasses relevant? (Forgetting to take them off and wondering why everything is so dark?)

Is technology relevant? Could it happen 100 years ago? 1000? 10000? Can you make it stop by: looking in another direction? Walking away? Closing your eyes? Closing one eye? Reflections relevant? Other optical phenomena? Can a very nearsighted person experience it without glasses? Is writing relevant? Can you experience it in the middle of nowhere? In fog? Snowstorm?

Is technology relevant? No
Could it happen 100 years ago? Yes
1000? Yes
10000? Yes

Can you make it stop by: looking in another direction? Yes
Walking away? That would make the current fawry stop, but a new fawry would occur when looking into the new direction.
Closing your eyes? Yes
Closing one eye? No

Reflections relevant? No
Other optical phenomena? DOYD of phenomena, but I don't think so.

Can a very nearsighted person experience it without glasses? Probably not
Is writing relevant? No
Can you experience it in the middle of nowhere? Yes
In fog? Depends on the density of the fog, but it would cause difficulty.
Snowstorm? Probably not

HINT: Remember that fawry is a phenomenon that is experienced while moving forward, usually while walking.

Will you experience fawry until you reach the object? Or will it stop before? Can you experience it with more than one object at a time? If so, can they be at different distances? Would using binoculars help? How about using them backwards, would that help? Or make things worse? Can you experience while riding a bicycle? Are you seeing an event?

Or will it stop before? Yes
Can you experience it with more than one object at a time? Yes
If so, can they be at different distances? That's possible, but the distances should be similar
Would using binoculars help? Umm... Yes, I think so
How about using them backwards, would that help? Uh, what would be the effect? Making things smaller, right? If so, it would definitely make things worse.
Or make things worse? See above
Can you experience while riding a bicycle? Yes
Are you seeing an event? Possible, but it would more likely involve objects

Indeed, binoculars in reverse makes stuff smaller. Try it!
Is it relevant that the object looks smaller? That you can't make out as many details? Does the fawry end when you're close enough to see the object better? Would bad eyesight (meaning that you need to get closer to see as good) make the fawry last longer? Mistaking an object for something else relevant? Or not recognizing it?

Since this has been going on for quite a while without one, here's a RECAP. I think you're already close but the multitude of posts might make this confusing.

Fawry is a phenomenon you experience when moving towards an object, usually by walking. While the object itself is not relevant, it is relevant that it seems small during the fawry. It is an annoying phenomenon and it becoms increasingly annoying the longer it lasts. Looking somewhere else while moving helps and the fawry ends before you actually reach the object. It's more likely to happen outdoors than indoors.

It is possible that the objects are moving, too, but for the sake of simplicity, let's say the object is stationary.

So it's relevant that it'll take more time to get close to the objects than you think. Is seeing a stretch of road and thinking it's shorter than it really is relevant? Energy expended while cycling relevant? Is it more often experienced: somewhere you've never gone before? Somewhere you go often? Somewhere you know by heart? Is knowledge about the route relevant at all?

Do you underestimate what fraction of the distance to your destination you have traveled? for instance, you see a point up ahead that you think is halfway there, but when you actually GET to that point, you look ahead and see that a new point appears to be halfway?

Does it work with any object? Any object above a certain size? Can you get fawry if you're not approaching the object? Can you get it on a moped? When the fawry stops, do you feel: relief? Happiness? Pleasure? Nothing? Can you get a new one on the same trip?

Can you get it on a moped? Yes
When the fawry stops, do you feel:
relief? This is most likely
Happiness?
Pleasure?
Nothing?
Can you get a new one on the same trip? Yes

Hint: There's probably a psychological component involved with it. I usually get fawry when I'm in a hurry or have to walk although I don't want to.

When I have to take the garbage down to the dumpster and it's getting dark/is dark outside, I start getting this (irrational?) fear that there's someone concealed inside the enclosure, waiting for me to open the door so he can shoot me. O_O And since it's getting darker earlier...Yeah. I have to walk about halfway down the street in the mobile home park to do this, btw, and sometimes I think 'he' could be hiding in the bushes/next to other houses/wherever. Is a feeling like this at all relevant?

Do you think most people experience fawry? Or some people? Or very few? Do you: stare at the object? Look at it a lot? Look at it occasionally? Avoid looking at it? Does it work with very large objects? Such as skyscrapers? Or antenna towers? If so, does it work better with those objects?

Kaylee, before we moved to our present house, where we have our own garbage can/rubbish bin, we lived in a mobile home park. One day, in broad daylight, my husband was taking a sack of garbage to the dumpster, and something was in the dumpster that tried to get him - a racoon! He managed to hit it right on the nose with the sack, and made it soooo mad, but the trash wasn't high enough that it could climb out, thankfully.

it would be worse if it was a kitteh...=( which could theoretically happen.

a cat could possibly get into the dumpster. Pet cats run around loose a bit in our area and at least two of my neighbors have cats. Now, if a cat slipped in past the gate into the closed off place where the dumpster is, and then climbed in when someone opened the lid, they could get trapped in there if the someone shut the lid on them...

of course if it was a person-kitteh then I'd really be worried. O_O


But a trapped kitteh is no good. =(

He would have probably tried to rescue a cat, but a racoon is different. They're much bigger, and /i{very)strong.

Do you think most people experience fawry? I think so
Or some people?
Or very few?
Do you: stare at the object? This is possible
Look at it a lot? This too
Look at it occasionally? Not really
Avoid looking at it? No
Does it work with very large objects? Yes
Such as skyscrapers? Yes
Or antenna towers? Yes
If so, does it work better with those objects? Hmm... It'd depend on how far away you are from the object. It would work better because you can see it from a greater distance.

I'm not sure whether this is just rephrasing biograd and potato's earlier questions...

Is fawry the sensation that you aren't getting any closer to the object that you're using as a point of reference? aren't getting there as quickly as you'd like, i.e. It just seems the same size as before, or only slightly bigger...

And this is solved! The you-know-what is coming up later.

********** SPOILER **********

Fawry (a condensed form of "far away") is the sensation that an object that you're walking towards doesn't seem to come any closer although you are constantly moving. Sometimes I experience it to such an extent that I feel as if I was not only walking in one spot but even backwards...

Good job solving this one and having the patience to stick with this :-)
