I just walked into the lounge and plucked a book from the shelf. The book was still shrink-wrapped though I bought it at least 10 years ago (from TSP, who used to shrink-wrap everything). I discarded the packaging, opened the book at random ...

... and found the exact same examples ('a bird in the the bush', a sentence with 8 f's not 6) that were used in Dr Guillaume Thierry's 'Braintrix' (on the brain's perceptual tricks), the George Hay lecture last Saturday at Eastercon.

*prod*, went the Universe. Pay attention. [...] shouldn't have to keep reminding you..

The book was Sue Knight's NLP at Work: I will be posting later about what prompted me to finally open it.

The worst of it has gone, I think, though I had a brief, er, resurgence yesterday.

Is anyone else getting ridiculously acute joint pain?
