Oops! is a web site dedicated to discovering the absent and wandering mind and some of its consequences.
In this site we provide examples, often entertaining, of mind-wandering and its consequences, some essays on inattention, and an opportunity to contribute to our understanding of the causes and consequences of mind-wandering.
The Daily Oops!
A man famed for his absent-mindedness once hailed a cab and hopped in with apparent confusion. "Where to?" the driver asked. "Number six," he replied, after a moment's reflection. "I'll tell you the street later on."
