    Advertising definitely works, I may not think about Coca Cola for weeks, and not ever drink it then see an advertisment somewhere, and then find myself drinking the stuff.

    I'm wondering, if it would be possible to have a subject, and for a few hours, revolve everything around say the number 31. what are the chances, IF i a few hours later ask them for a number between 1 and 100 that they will pick the number 31.

    I think it has something to do with memories connecting to synapses in the brain. If you hear 31 a lot, then that will stick to most memories and current processes within the brain. So as signals go to and from through the brain, it will pass '31' quite often on its way when they are making your brain do something. Thus 31 will play reguarly in your head, even if you're not consciously aware of it. Thats my spotaneous theory anyway.
