Now to this week’s treasure!
1. Superhuman memory in sports
I stumbled upon this video of Steph Curry remembering different plays throughout his career. It’s fascinating.
Why does this occur?
As we intensely study something, we are better able to find patterns.

2. Your favorite music?
Staying on the topic of memory…
“We found a reminiscence bump in adolescence (peaking around age 14) for both ratings of the autobiographical salience of songs featured in the charts during that period and the familiarity of these songs.”
In other words: you’re more likely to love (and remember) the music you listened to when you were 14 years old.
Pretty cool, eh?
3. Credit card debt is falling off a cliff.
Although I know next to nothing about credit card debt… this has got to be a good thing, right?
4. Before Jay-Z was Jay-Z
I’m fascinated by origin stories.
This 91 seconds from Jay-Z is worth a watch for anyone trying to make it.
He talks about what it was like to be rejected. How everyone doubted him. And how he wouldn’t trade those moments for anything.
Just goes to show what hard work and belief in yourself can do.
[I got the same feeling from Conor McGregor: Notorious (1.5 hours on Netflix), which is probably my favorite documentary of all time.]
5. The times are a-changin…
This image of New York City just 500 years ago blew my mind.
Can’t help but wonder what this picture will look like in another 500 years.
