I read that people can see polarized light like a bee. They must train 
their eyes by using a polarized film. Holding it to the sky, blue and 
yellow crosses appear, which represent the direction of polarity. 
Eventually, the eyes can see the blue and yellow crosses without aid of 
the film. Is this true?
