I was watching a flock of birds the other day.

They flew in a synchronized circle, using their wings at the same time on the same turns. It was rhythmic and beautiful.

I was then taken back by how long the birds continued to fly in circles. It lasted for at least 30 minutes. The birds seemed funny, flying around and around, for no apparent reason. Then the thought came, "I bet the birds think we are pretty funny when they watch Nascar."

I would love to look at some major gym/weight lifting companies entrance data to see the New Year's Resolutions peak in January and slowly decline thereafter.

I imagine the model would not be too surprising, but the rate of attrition would be fun to watch.
