if you have infrared eyesight, what would you see?
wait, let's rephrase. What would a person tells us, if he had worn infrared goggles all the time for a month?

Infrared eyesight would make everything look spooky and surreal! It'd be cool for a lil bit but rather depressing in the long run...

+Frank Hale he'd see animals and other creatures at night that we don't normally see, right?
am wondering what's the long-term benefit, in additional to normal eyesight, in normal city living in modern society.
 
Not sure, it'd be interesting for sure to see at least for a little while.
 
Changes in blood flow to the face might help understanding facial expressions.

+Jay Dugger good point. That probably means much easier to detect lies and other emotional change.
 
+Xah Lee Yeah, and faulty machinery that runs hot--which I've actually done, after that fact. 

"Yup, the thermograph shows everything around the shorted copper mains is hot! The smoke didn't lie."
