Relevant to this disscussion, I'm not sure what the picture that comes up on 
that link proves--I suppose it must be that one should extrapolate from it 
that the road pictured must certainly go on perfectly straight for-EVER 
(since what we see in the picture does so).

Seriously, me, a "mere" psychologist, comepletely agrees with the above 
regarding extrapolation--though I'd also admit that if my livleyhood 
depended on archives on CD, I might well pony up the money for the MAM.
