I came across this on youtube a few years ago, but couldn’t find it when I went to look again. I remembered the source and luckily NPR has just moved the video to their own site. I loved it then and still do. It’s short and pretty darn fascinating (but I’m a nerd). The entire premise is whether people can walk straight when blind(folded) or without a clear point to guide their path. It changed my opinion on the matter. Let me know what you think about it.
