Came across this post on boingboing:
It explains my mental state to a tee. I like to think I'm a pretty smart guy. But, man, I have the worst memory.
This article explains that that may actually be a good thing and, in fact, may be INDICATIVE of the fact that I am intelligent. See, it would appear intelligent folk are adept - not at remembering important things - but disregarding unimportant things.
My friends would tell you that includes things like their favourite bands or what they told me they were going to be doing this weekend...
But I never forget birthdays and I can quote movie lines like nobody's business.
It's all about priorities, baby.
