    No, you need to triangulate it.

    well i'm getting of the age when i need the examination, so i am going to make sure the proctologist has both eyes open to get the triangulation right

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    no, with one eye you have no depth perception, how did you get into an arguement about that?

    i dont agree with you SillyRumours

    Without 2 eyes you cant see 3Dimensional effects
    yet
    you are obviously able to see distance, and will be able to distinguish between what is close and far.
    if not then everything would be as flat as a comic book.

    I know a guy who has one eye and for some fkd up reason he works in a company that make 3D holagrams for advertising-he is unable to see these effects but i never saw him walk into walls

    Oooops-i just scanned the web for
    monoeyedcyclopsdepthperception

    it came out with

    People with one eye-have LESS Depth Perception
    it is hence not true that they have No Depthperception

    BigBoo-ALL your questions are answered here = http://www.losteye.com/depthper.htm

    lose an eye, & you will lose some depth perception. The key is "some" which for most people turns out to be "very little".
    You can help it out by practicing your one-eyed depth perception, such as by laying on your back and repeatedly throwing a tennis ball straight up in the air
    I have tried this & i have 2 eyes its dangerous

    NontheLess my earlier statement still holds

    that's good research Zedaxax , it makes sense that there are levels of depth perception, now armed with this knowledge i can teach that damn cyclops down the road a lesson: he has less depth perception than me

    its just one of those things that i thought of.

    i said you need to triangulate and he (being almost blind in one eye) said it cant be true. i tried explaining that he triangulates by moving his head. then when we got home my brother brought focus into the arguement.
