I'm sure madsci thought "charlieplexing" there for a split second
Hehe, nope, but tell a person not to think of eg. the word "banana" and that will be the very image that will pop up in his/hers mind
No, never heard of it before - more or less it started (for me) with an episode of The Persuaders, where somebody would set of something bad by thinking of an elephant - and as soon as you tell people not to, it's what gets focus of course.Strange thing really, but it goes to illustrate how little we are in control of our own minds, when push comes to shove.Perhaps a good thing to keep in mind, whenever we try to replicate ourselves through robotics.
Yes, you can use the RX/TX pins as regular IO. Just don't call the Serial.begin() in your code, and make sure you call a pinMode() for them. You can also use the 6 ADC pins as another 6 digital IO pins as well. (digital pins 14-19)

allot of people have been mentioning shifting but wouldn't that be really slow? i mean you'd have to wait for 20 inputs to be input into the register before enabling it [...]
