Comment: Maybe it was there the whole time..

Maybe it was there the whole time..

...and your brain simply didn't register it because you were too busy thinking about something else? The human brain can only concentrate on so much at any given moment before you stop noticing otherwise obvious things around you.

I only suggest this because it happens to me a lot. I'll be looking for something I *know* I put in a specific place, look back three times, then give up, only to find it ten minutes later at the same spot. Even worse is when I'm looking for my glasses...while I'm wearing them.
