    It will start with one group of people who will use it often and then it gets passed on to their friends and their friends an so on. It's like a contagious disease

Or each thread is like a piece of paper being passed around? Or something else?
    This is such a spectacular description! I love it How very creative and trippy, haha!
    I don't see it like that, my mind isn't that elaborate

    This brings up my regular, random thought: am I the only person in the world with no visual brain whatsoever? Like, when I read a book, I don't have a running picture in my mind. That's why I skip all the pages that spend twenty paragraphs describing flowers in a field. Means nothing to me. And I certainly don't have a mental image of the hub!
    You really have no visual brain or conjure up mental images? Ever? That fascinates me! Wow, I wonder how common that is?

    I have relatives like this, thankfully they're relatively estranged so I don't actually know what their day to day thoughts are like. I liken it to me trying to avoid added sugar in my daughters diet but 500 times worse - tricky if I'm looking for something quick to give her. So imagine trying to avoid basically everything that main****** people use / consume would be exhausting. Not to mention the added exertion of pushing their beliefs on everyone else!

    From what I can gather, not very. I got mighty peeved once at a party when I had a roomful of drunken people yelling at me that I had no imagination when I said I had no mental image when reading the Da Vinci code. And everyone was like 'so how do you know what's happening?', and I was like 'I dunno? Maybe because THE WORDS TELL ME?!'

    I wonder about American thanksgiving. If there are about 280 million ppl in the US, and each household has a turkey, that's like 60 million turkeys. Where the hell to they keep 60 million turkeys ready to be eaten at thanksgiving?!

    I'm in a weird position cause I LOVE reading but I speed read. I ignore all the description cause it holds no interest for me but at the same time I build a very vivid mental picture. To the point where I won't watch films/TV series made of my favourite books because it absolutely drives me insane when they get it wrong (according to my brain vision lol)

    I think it would be much less than 60 million because surely most people spend thanksgiving with extended family.
