This seems to happen to me often.

I'll hear or read some obscure bit of information somewhere in the news, a forum, etc... Within the next day or so I hear about it again, and then sometimes a third or fourth time.

Example:

A few days ago I was watching Modern Marvels and the program was on hot peppers. They talked about the hottest pepper in the world, the Bhut Jolokia pepper from India.

The next day I was reading the news and saw a news link about how the Indian Army developed a grenade that showers people with hot pepper dust. Without even opening the link I knew they were talking about the same pepper.

This happens often. I think it's strange, but I learn a lot that way.

Everytime I hear about a crazy hideous crime, it seems to be a "Law and Order" episode three weeks later.

It's like when someone you know dies and then tv show that week is about someone dying and every song on the radio too.

I said every time I hear about a crime, not commit a crime.

The crimes I commit can only be shown on HBO.

Perhaps just a heightened sensitivity to that subject after hearing about it?
