  1. Dogs watch more TV now, thanks to high-def TVs. Old CRT TVs were too blurry for dogs to see, but modern screens allow dogs to see the images as clearly as humans

  2. A famous study -- showing that people supposedly do better on "trick" questions when printed in a blurry font, which makes them concentrate -- was debunked as an artifact of small sample size. (The study was cited in Nobel-Prize-winner Daniel Kahneman's book "Thinking Fast and Slow.")

  3. After almost 20 years of battling for a Hubble budget and creating the telescope, and after finally putting it into orbit, the first images NASA received were blurry because the mirror curvature was off by 2.2 thousandth of a millimeter.

  4. The cause of blurry vision in the first hour after waking in the morning is small pieces of rheum (eye sleep) unsticking from your eyeball and floating down to be washed away by your tear duct.

  5. Half the world’s population — about 5 billion people — will be nearsighted by 2050 if current trends continue.

Funny blurry details

Interesting definitions that can be fact checked.

The technical term for a blurry background in which the viewer focuses on the foreground is called a "bokeh" (Japanese for "fuzziness)

The $2.5billion dollar Hubble telescope was fitted with a flawed mirror, resulting in blurry images. This was primarily down to an engineer using black tape and an X-Acto knife on a measuring device, instead of spray paint

Björk asked a director Nick Knight to make a music video for "Pagan Poetry" "a film about her own life" to which he replied: "Film your own love life". Therefore, the blurry yet explicit scenes of fellatio&ejaculation were from Björk's personal footage and filmed by a Sony Mini DV camera.

There was a psychic named Ted Serios who could produce Polaroid photographs with his thoughts called "thoughtographs", ranging from black/white patterns to blurry but specific images, still working from 66 ft away without physical contact. Neither proven or unproven, even skeptics were won over.

A NASA probe sent to image an asteroid named after Louis Braille failed due to a camera optics error resulting in blurry images

Magnification is not the most important consideration when choosing a telescope. Telescopes advertised on the basis of high magnification (400X to 575X power, or more) are a sure sign of inferior quality as excessive magnification blurs the already blurry image

Insulting the ancient Mayan deity Ahu Chamahez leaves you cursed with blurry vision. For eternity.

Björk asked Nick Knight to make a music video for her single "Pagan Poetry" "a film about her love life" so he gave her a Sony DMV camera to film her own love life. Therefore, the blurry sex scenes in the video are Björk's personal sex tapes.

Why the Hubble can take detailed pictures of distant galaxies, but only shows blurry smudges for Pluto.

If "The Sims 4" detects that you're using a pirated copy of the game, any action that creates the "pixelated censor square" (showering, using the toilet, etc.) will cause that square to expand and fill the whole screen, leaving behind an unplayable blurry mess.

Sometimes telescopes are advertised using magnification, but a large magnification on too small a telescope just produces a large blurry image. Aperture is more important than magnification

Galileo’s best telescope magnified objects about 30 times. Because of flaws in its design, such as the shape of the lens and the narrow field of view, the images were blurry and distorted but he still saw the phases of Venus, craters on the Moon and four moons orbiting Jupiter

R/blursedimages isn't called that because it's blurry blessedimages (blur-sed) but because it's images that are blessed and cursed (bl-ursed). For the longest time I was unsubbed to it cos I thought I would only see low quality images on it.
