If your child listens to classical music:
The Haydn Effect:Child is witty and quick on his feet, quite often bringing a grin to the faces of those around him. Despite this he exhibits remarkable humility.
The Bach Effect:Child memorizes Scripture and says his prayers every day; may overwhelm listeners with his speech.
The Handel Effect:Much like the Bach Effect; in addition, the child may exhibit dramatic behavior.
The Beethoven Effect:Child develops a superiority complex and is prone to violent tantrums; is a perfectionist.
The Liszt Effect:Child speaks rapidly and extravagantly, but never really says anything important
The Bruckner Effect:Child speaks very slowly and repeats himself frequently. Gains a reputation for profundity.
The Grieg Effect:This child is quirky yet cheery. May be prone toward Norwegian folklore.
The Wagner Effect:Child becomes a megalomaniac. Speaks for six hours at a stretch.
The Schoenberg Effect:Child never repeats a word until he has used all the other words in his vocabulary. Sometimes talk backwards or upside-down. Eventually people stop listening to him. Child blames them for their inability to understand him.
The Ives Effect:Child develops a remarkable ability to carry on several separate conversations at once.
The Stravinsky Effect:Child is prone to savage, guttural and profane outbursts that lead to fighting and pandemonium in preschool.

I took The Multivariable Calculus, General Chemistry, University Physics all in the same semester b/c I guess I thought I’d be able to handle it.
Scientists discover most relaxing tune ever
Sound therapists and Manchester band Marconi Union compiled the song. Scientists played it to 40 women and found it to be more effective at helping them relax than songs by Enya, Mozart and Coldplay.
Weightless works by using specific rhythms, tones, frequencies and intervals to relax the listener. A continuous rhythm of 60 BPM causes the brainwaves and heart rate to synchronise with the rhythm: a process known as ‘entrainment’. Low underlying bass tones relax the listener and a low whooshing sound with a trance-like quality takes the listener into an even deeper state of calm.
Dr David Lewis, one of the UK’s leading stress specialists said: “‘Weightless’ induced the greatest relaxation – higher than any of the other music tested. Brain imaging studies have shown that music works at a very deep level within the brain, stimulating not only those regions responsible for processing sound but also ones associated with emotions.”
The study - commissioned by bubble bath and shower gel firm Radox Spa - found the song was even more relaxing than a massage, walk or cup of tea. So relaxing is the tune, apparently, that people are being Rex advised against listening to it while driving.
The top 10 most relaxing tunes were: 1. Marconi Union - Weightless 2. Airstream - Electra 3. DJ Shah - Mellomaniac (Chill Out Mix) 4. Enya - Watermark 5. Coldplay - Strawberry Swing 6. Barcelona - Please Don’t Go 7. All Saints - Pure Shores 8. AdelevSomeone Like You 9. Mozart - Canzonetta Sull’aria 10. Cafe Del Mar - We Can Fly
my muscles stopped functioning
I was so relieved this wasn’t a trick. Very soothing.
