Years ago, I saw a physiology study where they were trying to isolate 
what was "special" about different types of athletes.  Some were pretty 
obvious, but they couldn't find anything in particular about race car 
drivers that separated them from other athletes.  After some 
brainstorming, they found that, alone among the groups, the racecar 
drivers could read every word on a 45 RPM record while it was turning at 
45 RPMs.  Not that it's apropos of anything in particular, but I found 
it interesting.
