double note: I wish I had nits … because I’ve always wanted to shave my head.
triple note: S. Le: the PollDaddy polls don’t show other people’s answers because:
“When you have the ‘Other’ option enabled in your poll, it allows your voters to enter an answer of their own. We don’t display these directly in the poll at the moment due to concerns around spam.“
The Stanley Cup was awarded today: it’s the post season now … or again.
If people had total recall of every memory stamped on their brain:
- School would be over very quickly. - phone books could be shared between a lot of people.
- Lost and Found areas wouldn’t have so much stuff in them. - saying “I forgot.” would be a crappier excuse than it is now.
-computer apps and memo books for remembering stuff would be gone. -”belated birthday cards” wouldn’t be very popular.
- a lot of movies and tv shows would look very copied … more than they do now. “This is the same as episode 52 of The Rockford Files, episode 129 of Barnaby Jones, and episode 5 of Cannon!“
- sports stats would only be for newbies. - no one would make mistakes singing National Anthems … unintentionally.
- the jean jacket with the patch on it saying “Don’t eat yellow snow“, that I left behind a rock on Mt. Rundle in Banff when I was 11 years old, wouldn’t still be behind that rock.
- déjà vu would be clinically verifiable.
- people would probably know exactly when they lost their memory. - I would know exactly how many Big Macs I’ve eaten in my lifetime.
- memory sticks would still be popular.
- the rhetorical question “How many times have I told you … ” wouldn’t have to be uttered … “I’ve told you 34,094 times … ” would be more popular. - grudges might last longer.
- trivial bets would have to be more trivial. - being born would be kind of a weird memory.
… History would still repeat itself … because total recall wouldn’t mean people would be any smarter.
Remembering mistakes is different than learning from them.
note: I’m glad I don’t have total recall of all my memories … otherwise I would never snap my fingers, look skyward blankly with a furrowed brow, or slap my head.
double note: “I remember everything I remember every little thing as if it happened only yesterday” … or maybe only a little stuff that happened yesterday … or I think happened yesterday possibly only a little.

Today my morning consisted of sitting in a hotspring bath and buying a helium balloon: life’s tough like that sometimes.
I like my organs like I like my combustion engines
note: I’m donating all my organs when I die … it’s kind of like cheating death … and if there is one thing I like doing, it’s cheating death.
… and maybe eating all the stuff the person beside me on the airplane doesn’t want at meal time.
double note: organ couriers must be very organized.
triple note: I don’t really know if I really like my combustion engines internal … I just made that stuff up.
