Only stupid people or little kids get motion sickness Edit ****

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

Kids get motion sickness because they're still getting used to what the world is and how they exist in it, Adults get motion sickness because they're too stupid to comprehend they're moving even while sitting on their butts.


Edit for those who don't understand why :  I equate self control and will power to intelligence. Both of which have been able to subdue the effects of motion sickness in people . Some people.

Well, of course. That's because I wasn't being funny, but you'd have to be somewhat smart to realize that and well... You're not

Keep telling yourself that.

I think it is way beyond stupid to call people who get motion sickness stupid. I get it and I am not stupid.

Of course they realize the car is moving.



But their brain can't process that the movement is seperate from their body moving."

Sure. But that has nothing to do with INTELLIGENCE. As I explained to you in the post you obviously ignored, it's a BIOLOGICAL process involving the many stimuli that detect movement. They send conflicting messages to your brain. It's BIOLOGICAL, not COGNITIVE.

There are millions of people all over the world that can control their biological responses that occur on such a circumstantial basis.

I'm not talking about overcoming the biological effects of cancer or diabetes,

It's as simple as a smoker overcoming the urge to smoke, a man overcoming an erection that happens at a bad time, the shivering of a person who is slightly cold while waiting for a movie to start...ect, ect.
