105 STASHED IDEAS

  • Crowds can influence learning, as certain behaviour (emotional and physical) is contagious.
  • Crowds can make certain experiences richer, like being in a packed stadium watching a game, or going to a rock concert. The experience becomes much more enjoyable and exciting.

An extreme form of sport that is relatively safe, bungee jumping has a brief, surprising history.

It has its roots in Pentecost Island in the Southern Pacific region. The old legend had a female victim of marital abuse jumping off a large tree with her feet tied to the vines, escaping the fall. The abusive husband who jumped after her died after hitting the ground.

  • Or start from the 21st century and work backwards.
The Music Of Our Youth

Music is linked to our memory and emotion and certain life experiences and autobiographical memories are better recalled than others.

We are nostalgic and extremely emotional about the music we heard in our formative years when we were young. We believe that music from the past was better, but each generation is deeply connected to the music heard in the specific decade where they were teens coming of age.
