You know how sometimes, something you've never heard of before suddenly is everywhere you look? The other day, a friend was talking about the game of Pickle Ball, which is sort of a modified indoor tennis/badminton game with large rackets and a soft ball and a low net. Never heard of Pickle Ball before. Then, our gym teacher starts talking about it with me. Then, I see a photo spread in local newspaper about Pickle Ball. Suddenly, Pickle Ball is everywhere in my field of vision. #smallstories


@dogtrax I often think my general inability to discern frequency increase from frequency illusion is one of few indicators that I'm doing *something* right.

@fncll Thx for responding. The frequencies of the world are often odd things -- what we hear, what we don't hear, what we only barely hear, sometimes.
