comment How long does it take to read a sentence with X number of characters?
I am not sure if the downvotes came before or after the migration to CogSci... but as it stands now, your answer lacks sufficient scientific evidence to stand as a good answer on this site. Most good answers here need to cite reference papers or studies.

I have undeleted this question because I think it is a good, answerable question, and I was asked in chat to bring it back. If this bothers you ajk, please let me know.

comment What was the experiment where you pour liquid from a tall container to a short one and ask a child which has more?
Actually I like this related video even better. The kid is so sure he's right, even when the woman conducting the experiment presses him to explain himself. It shows that he can't just figure it out on his own...

That's a great example @ArtemKaznatcheev, thanks! I never get tired of watching these, they fascinate me. Like how the girl counts the quarters when they're together but is so sure there's more when they're spread out.
