I Got Nothing

Greetings Squaddies! Welcome back.

Today's question comes from a Mr. Bacharach who asks:
Why do birds suddenly appear, every time I am near?

The answer is pretty simple. Just like me, they long to be, close to you. Either that, or you have popcorn in your hair.

As you can tell, I've got nothing. The holiday week has thrown my productivity waaaaay off, and it has seeped into my personal productivity, also known as this site. I'm also starting to run out of questions, so we're going to need someone to step up and refill our question bucket. In the interest of getting this accomplished, I'm going to open up Wednesdays to any and all questions, science or not. If you have a question, ask it, and I'll do my best to answer it. Not sure how will it'll work out, but I'm sure it'll be interesting.

Don't worry, I still have some science questions left, including one about lactic acid that I"m planning on answering next week. Andy asked it, and as he's currently riding his bike across England, it's a subject I'm sure he's well acquainted with.

Here is a question for ya:

Ever since I was kid I always wondered about how we perceive the world. How do you know that the the red ball in the grass looks the same as the red ball in the grass that another person sees? Vision, aint it great? Amazing how we all see the same thing. Now to my question.....

How does a video camera work to capture a moving image? I can phathom how a regular camera captures an image on film but how does this whole digital/video thing work?

That's an excellent question. I too have wondered how these crazy devices work.
