One interesting piece of information I heard was about pushing the limits. Something about how the change of contexts or the presence of a new stimulation will diminish the supposed limits we have set for ourselves.

Langer cited a research she did with male animals in which she found that even though normally males would require a period of rest after copulation, the presence of a new female seemed to energize the male despite lack of rest.

Need to find something to stimulate my pupils learning (NOT of course in any way similar to the above example)...

Good audio tape, hunny and very detailed capturing of information on your part.

Monster LadyGaga

One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a boy throwing starfish from the beach into the sea.

The guy asked "Good morning unknown boy! May I ask what it is that you are doing?"

The boy said "Throwing starfish into the ocean. The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them in, they'll die."

Upon hearing this, the guy said, "Eh, there are zillions of starfish on the beach. You can't possibly make a difference!"

At this, the boy bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, "It made a difference for that one."

"It made a difference for that one" The boy repeated, as if anticipating a reaction from the guy.

Both looked at each other for an awkward minute.

"Hmm"... Said the guy, eyebrows furrowed.

"What?!" Said the boy.

"Well, if you look there, the starfish you just threw earlier has washed up on the shore again. and most likely most of them will wind up here anyway tomorrow or the next day. But of course, I'm sure you're just happy that you made a difference to them today...kekekkeke"

The boy stopped still in his tracks and stared widemouthed at the guy.

"So you're telling me I've wasted my time throwing starfish here the whole day?!?!??!"

"Well..." the guy started, "I guess you probably made some starfish happy, and you're extremely pleased with that of course. But, I'll tell you what we could do. Maybe we can set up a net or something that would reduce the number of starfish that wash up the shore. We probably need to get some friends of yours to come down to help with this set up"

"Hmm that sounds like a great idea!" the boy said, "but its a big beach, and I'm too lazy to get my friends down and do so much work. Anyway it's late and its time for me to go back... BYE!!!!"

"Nice...." Muttered the guy as he continued his leisurely stroll on the beach.
