The Tetris effect is the form of habit, a very bad one. The only way to get rid of it is by stop devoting too much to the activity that's affecting you.

Today's fact:

The Basenji, a breed of dog, cannot bark. This strange little dog with wrinkles on its cheeks and forehead, perky ears and a tightly curled tail can make other sounds common to dogs, like whines or cries or growls, but it cannot bark. However, it can make a sound that other dogs cannot, a sound resembling a yodel!

The basenji has another unusual feature not found in other breeds of dogs; it has the habit of washing its short, silky coat with its tongue to keep itself clean and neat; much like the habit common to all cats.
