2.) Write a narrative account of a time you experienced a “life-changing event” (as above, high school graduation, earning a GED, getting your license, or winning some sports event). This may be something you only later came to realize had significantly changed your life, or one that you immediately recognized as life-changing when it happened. Again, explain what happened, how you reacted, and why you reacted the way that you did, as well as both the immediate and the long-term significance of this event, and be descriptive.

Normally I wouldn’t respond to these articles as I find them, well “Damn Intersting”. However I feel that I should state the obvious. The reason the The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon works is because we have opened our minds to something we for whatever reason have found interesting. We then inadvertantly listen for that “interesting” word, subject,etc. People come on, is it really that hard to understand or does mankind just need something that badly to speculate. With that said I bid you farewell. P.S. I did not read all the comments so should someone have stated the same thing I just did, then I apologize for the redundant comment.
A while ago I was looking for the longest words in a dictionary, and I stumbled across “Floccinaucinihilipilification” (A real word). Then within a week Geiko made a new commercial with a kid taking a spelling be and having to spell the same word. I was pretty sure that it was a new commercial. What I really thought was weird was that I had recently read this article when I was looking through Damn interesting to see what I had missed. Then I saw Munich (I hope that’s spelled right) and they mentioned Baader-Meinhof. I had an overdose of Baader-Meinhof at that point, so I went to go eat some pumpkin pie.

1.) Write a narrative account of a time you enjoyed a “moment of glory” completing high school or your GED, getting your driver’s license, or participating in a sports- or competition-related event. Explain what happened, how you reacted, and why you reacted the way that you did. Be sure to explain both the immediate and the long-term significance of this event, and use specific, detailed descriptions.

You may have heard about Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon before. In fact, you probably learned about it for the first time quite recently. If not, then you just might hear about it again very soon. Baader-Meinhof is the phenomenon where one stumbles upon some obscure piece of information—often an unfamiliar word or name—and soon afterwards encounters the same subject again, often repeatedly. Anytime the phrase “That’s so weird, I just heard about that yesterday” would be appropriate, the utterer is hip-deep in Baader-Meinhof.

Although death cannot be avoided permanently, there are many folktalesthat describe temporary respites. The story of the blacksmith who trickeddeath (sometimes identified as "the devil") is one of the most popularfolktales in Europe:
Composition I: Eng-101 Syllabus - Brian T. Murphy
The reason for this is our brains’ prejudice towards patterns. Our brains are fantastic pattern recognition engines, a characteristic which is highly useful for learning, but it does cause the brain to lend excessive importance to unremarkable events. Considering how many words, names, and ideas a person is exposed to in any given day, it is unsurprising that we sometimes encounter the same information again within a short time. When that occasional intersection occurs, the brain promotes the information because the two instances make up the beginnings of a sequence. What we fail to notice is the hundreds or thousands of pieces of information which aren’t repeated, because they do not conform to an interesting pattern. This tendency to ignore the “uninteresting” data is an example of selective attention.

I have always attributed this occurrence to the human brain as well, but I figured that the reason Baader-Meinhof happens to all of us is because we tend to filter out and ignore topics and vocabulary we are unfamiliar with. Then once we become familiar with a new word or topic we then tune in when someone brings it up. Anyone agree??
