I’m the opposite. I’ve always thought that if I hadn’t wasted so much of my memory memorizing song lyrics, maybe I could have been more than some some ****ing fireman. That said, I cannot remember artists names to save my life. No idea why. I’ll lose that bar bet every night of the god damn week. Even if I know the words!!!
Random people: “Hey who sang ____?”
Me: “Damnit. I don’t know. **** off”
I’m real social sometimes.
I can memorize almost anything. But one thing that gives me trouble, even after all these years in electronics, is remembering that red is positive and black is negative. I have to look it up, every time. I stand there, looking at the wires, and I think, "I should know this. Been in electronics almost 40 years, now, but ... dammit!" and I go and look it up. Maybe because of that I have never miswired power in a DC circuit.Despite having decent intelligence (made it through med school lol), I can't seem to memorize any song in its entirety. Anyone else have this problem too?
