If I remember correctly, in Pysch 101 (which I took in college) there is something called "selective perception" which basically means when you buy a red car, you suddenly become aware of all the other red cars on the road. You are kind of stunned by this because before you bought the red car, you didn't notice, but now that you have selective perception you suddenly zone in on the fact that there are red cars everywhere!
So far this year Arizona has had 524 wildfires, which have burned more than 10,610 acres, through June 3. By that same time last year, there were 784 wildfires that burned more than 69,000 acres.
“Obviously, it’s a complete 360 from last year," Arizona Department of Forestry and Fire Management spokeswoman Tiffany Davila said, sighting cooler temperatures.
Okay, so when you are in a fire, you think everything is on fire and, by extension, driving a red car.
