That reminds me of an incident from my schooldays.

Our class were in a physics lesson and the teacher was explaining
about alternating electric current and how the incandescent light
bulbs were actually flickering faster than our eyes could see.
There was a short pause, then from the back of the class, the class
wit shouted out -
"Sir, sir!  If you blink quickly you can see it!"
(Applause from class!)  :)
