I do love programmes like "Derren Brown" where they show how people can be subtly manipulated through sub-conscious prompts of which they are totally unaware. I had my own experience of that last weekend. In one class I drew a picture on the board to illustrate "excited" to my students [see photo, left] but it was only after the lesson that I saw the skeleton picture behind me [see photo, right]. I've probably seen it many times before in previous classes but it had never registered. However my own picture was so identical I can't believe it was simply a coincidence - just look at the angles of those legs and arms! It really goes to show how much you absorb without even realising it.
