Wacky Theories

Anyone who is a Monty Python fan will remember the skit of Anne Elk and her theory about dinosaurs. To cut a long and amusing story short her theory was that dinosaurs are thin at one end, thick in the middle and thin at the other end.

Like Anne Elk I have come up with theories of my own over the years. Maybe not as wacky, but nevertheless theories……….

When my farther in law hit 80 (he is now 89) he started complaining that he could not remember much these days, especially recent events. My response was, “What is the problem?” I said that at his age he could take solace in the fact that he has more to remember than most people, so it is understandable if he does not remember everything.

Sometimes I think that this theory also applies to me. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could do a defrag on our brains to speed up our thought processes.

Yup, that would be cool....or if someone could warn us at an early age not to fill the memory with gigs and gigs of irrelevant stuff, so we could leave more space for a lifetime of useful info!

Hi Suzi-k
Imagine if we could also do a disc (brain)cleaup and clear out the dros. Of course warnings would not help. The problem with most humans is that they spend their lives accumulating all sorts of interesting and useless things in their homes and in their minds. Imagine how dull life would be if we only filled our minds and homes with useful things and info. I like your wacky mind.
