I was presuming on the conjunction of Hamlet's 'bloat king' and 
Claudius' status as a heavy drinking non-combatant, but I was 
undoubtedly influenced by the sight of David Tennant as a notably skinny 
prince. Whether Hamlet is in fact 'lean and mean' or fat but fierce is 
another of those questions Levy Navarro neglects to consider.

Thanks for the kind words and justified quibble,
Arthur

Since "our two optic nerves have roughly the resolution of cell-phone 
cameras", the Boston Globe sums up the current state of knowledge, 
"visual cognition is understood not as a camera but [. . .] a flashlight 
  beam sweeping a twilit landscape. At any particular instant, we can 
only see detail and color in the small patch we are concentrating on."
