There is something to be said for that. These days instead of memorizing everything we just need to remember WHERE to find it for next time we need it.

I also love to read. I typically read about a book a week. It's just the way most people read is they blow through a book and immediately forget everything. Never mind make any change in their life.

Underlining key information and putting it all into Anki. If you want to get really meta there's a classic called, "How to Read a Book".

Well ... it depends.
And I will be holding breakout sessions entitled “Shithead 101”, “Time Wasting for Beginners” & “Coping With Short Term Mem…..
Who was that what started this thread? Whoever he was is pretty clever.
Some dude who brushed his teeth with Preperation H I think. He also likes to dress up in leather if I recall.
Really my main point is Sherlock Holmes is full of shit. Fricken' amateur.
Sounds like a good idea!
I brushed my teeth with the toilet brush… and the handle has gone missing.
We’ve all been there, mate.
