Can we substitute "Werewolf David Bowie" for "Time Loop Time Loop?"

The facial recognition issue is a seriously terrifying medical condition. Sufferers can't even recognise their children or spouses. They learn to recognise people by their clothes and hair. I suspect haircuts cause major problems. I'm sure a thriller or horror movie has used or will at some point use it as a way for a con man or killer to get close to a sufferer.

Face blindness. I've heard about that. Tell me, do you recognise voices?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:14pm Ken From Hyde Park:

WFMU Sportsy Talk personality Bronwyn C. has face blindness.
Avatar 6:14pm steve:

Dry sandwich. That's a weird answer.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:15pm Caryn:

@Trolleybus: some people use voices to recognise people, but the disorder also often affects memory, so all the recognition techniques are susceptible to problems. Voice recognition more than many others (since you can write down lists and descriptions of clothes and hair, but voice is more problematic, unless you record samples of everyone).

Jane Goodall, Steve Wozniak and Tom Stoppard all have some degree of face blindness.
Avatar 6:22pm dog:

Does face blindness mean you don't know if your partner is ugly? Sounds like an equalizer
Avatar 6:23pm crateslinger:

Dang, I thought I could hide behind a fake name. Anyway, honey I love you and you're beautiful!
  6:24pm JakeGould:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:24pm Caryn:

Well, you usually can't recognise your own face in the mirror either, so you also wouldn't know if you were ugly.
Avatar 6:26pm crateslinger:

I actually have a friend with FB. I didn't think about it, but she couldn't find me in a restaurant after I shaved my beard.
Avatar 6:27pm crateslinger:

I finally noticed her standing there and I was like, "Yo, over here." She recognized my voice like bang.

  6:28pm Alex in Brooklyn:

It turns out Har Markar is dating Joey's other sister. On seeing Chandler smooch his sweety, he loses his Bhuddist cool and punches Chandler right in the gibblets
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Caryn:

Also, some sufferers also have problems with recognising landmarks, so trying to remember routes is difficult. Following regular tv shows and movies is supposedly also next to impossible. Cartoons and sketch shows with recurring characters are easier to follow, because the characters often wear the same clothes all the time and have more exaggerated voices and features.

You have to actually sign out to become anonymous. Thank god I can add whole numbers.

Avatar 6:38pm Trolleybus:

@Caryn Wow, thats some disability. If a colleague/acquaintance has prosopagnosia (I looked it up) how can one help them?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:42pm Caryn:

@Trolleybus: hm, I suppose adopting a distinct clothing style (that's a thought... all goths are just helping out friends who are sufferers) and warning them of grooming changes helps? If you happen to have a limp or something, that'll come in handy. Guess it also depends on what kind of prosopagnosia they have.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:43pm djtyler:

this is hilarious
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:44pm Caryn:

I guess also identifying yourself by your name when you approach them or talk to them (especially for the initial weeks/months) helps.

Nice to hear a fellow Brit on wfmu. He gets my vote. Partisanship. Estuary English rules. Innit!
Avatar 6:46pm jurstin:

totally would have screened that pranker
  6:46pm dog:

Caryn and Trolleybus - it's not that bad. They actually get along pretty well. Worst case they arrange to meet you at a particular place, and they recognize body type, style, and especially voice. They become very observant people - not lost in the world at all.
  6:48pm dog:

I guess you could trick them if you wanted to. Not sure how much fun it would be.
Avatar 6:49pm Listener Julian:

Time Loop Time Loop is the greatest.
  6:49pm JakeGould:

This game is evil.
Avatar 6:49pm Listener Julian:

Greatest game of all time. Better than Manolo's Delight.
  6:50pm Dave in Vermont on the phone:

I'm listening and it's great!!!
When you play time loop next week do it at the beginning of the show

Maybe just have WFMU do Time Loop 24 hours a day.

I'm with Julian
  6:52pm wizard frog:

date a pro wrestler :D
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:52pm Caryn:

@dog: I guess it depends on the severity. If you simply have facial recognition issues, it's easy to cope. If you have problems with landmark recognition, modern navigation apps help them find their way around. But if they also have memory problems, impaired vision (which is a common problem) or colour perception problems (another occasional issue), or have prosopagnosia because of another medical issue (like Altzheimer's, autism or brain damage from an accident), coping can be significantly more difficult.
Avatar 6:53pm jurstin:

did frank get drunk in the last 10 minutes?
Avatar 6:53pm Trolleybus:

@Caryn. Be constantly distinctive. Wear something unusual but not necessarily outrageous at work, constantly. The BBC did a radio programme on this a while ago, although I've forgotten most of it.

Make a friend. Frank was responding tp Amanda sayin he's sexy
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm Caryn:

@Trolleybus: yeah, a friend of mine has made herself distinctive by wearing all purple, including having purple dreadlocks. Helps patients ID her even from a distance.

Diaper? It's a nappy!
Avatar 6:57pm Trolleybus:

Brake out of prison with a nappy. As we say on this side of the pond
  6:57pm sd:

Time loop with a diaper
  6:58pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

As the only one here who has actually tried to break out of prison with a diaper, I sure you it is not as good an idea as it sounds.
Avatar 6:58pm Listener Julian:

Break out of the nick with a nappy
  6:59pm Pete from Boston (and NJ):

Sometimes I'm surprised there's not more crying on this show.
Avatar 7:03pm Trolleybus:

Fake Brit? He sounds like he's from 'ounslow to me.
  7:06pm dog:

@Caryn, yeah guess I'm only talking about my friend. They mention it in conversation so I know they struggle with it more than I grasp, but I don't have experience with a larger segment of this population.
  7:07pm dog:

Why am I still posting on the last show? Where's Ken?
