    I spotted that sentence straight away but that doesn't mean my brain is working differently to others, the problem is my brain doesn't work at all, or so my wife says but I'm inclined to agree since for the last year or two I will walk all the way to the fridge and then when I get there I have no idea what I went for, I have to do the weekly shopping on my own since my can't now, but after two years of doing this with a list in my hand and constantly reading through it, just last Saturday a little boy about 9 years old said to me "hey Mr, have you never thought about bringing a pen and ticking off the items you already have?" smug little bastard:eek::eek::eek::)

    I listen to a podcast called Radiolab (very highly recommended) and in the one episode they talked about the forgetfulness thing. When you go to the fridge, do you have to pass through a doorway of some kind? That triggers your brain into forgetting thing, it's proven scientificaly. The grocery list, probably something to do with Dunbar's law which is that we can only remember 150 different people names and then we start to erase names in our memory. And the coolest mind trick is to remember things is to wear a ...

    Ummm what we're we talking about?

    If I could only remember 150 names I would be in trouble at the school I work in. Its small so only 400 kids, but they get tetchy if you don't know their names lol.

    As of tomorrow morning Dutch time my paint pal will be on it's way too my paint pal buddy, but a little heads up, although I am now happy with it, it is definitely not worth murdering a post man over, maybe just rough him up a little bit, take out this wallet and tear up that photo of his three kids and give it back to him, kick him in the shins, whatever takes your fancy but DO NOT KILL him:)

    Put it in the envelope and post it to yourself... just write a note to say it's an experiment... then send it to your PP... :)

    I'm standing at the fridge right now, no clue what I want from there but it's my lucky day, the fridge is empty:thumbsup: oh wait I see it now, my packed up and ready to go paint pal is sitting on top of it, cool (no pun intended) :)

    We have two doors into the kitchen, I think that's why the fridge empties very quick, I've thought about walking through both doors backwards to fool my brain into thinking I'm on my way back, but to be honest I think the only reason I do go to the fridge is to check that the lamp goes out:confused: it's a brand new fridge and I've have seen the lamp go out, should I take back? :(

    I guess I am the odd ball on remembering due to only when I am highly stressed out or my PTSD is in overdrive do I forget anything.
    I know the name of all 584 people I work with *may not talk to them all but I do know their names.

    Thats impressive. I must balance the scales. I'm antisocial so I would be surprised to remember 50 names

    So my PP is done, and will be on its way to it's victim tomorrow. :D If only I'd done what I did to the micron after I finished painting it, before I started Lol. But hey ho, it vaguely resembles something, if not as crisply as I would have liked. So stalk your Postman people.

    I am jumping up each time the letterbox goes, but nothing yet. I think my Postie has Dragonophobia and is too scared to come to the door.
