Joshua Foer: Feats of memory anyone can do
Filed under Uncategorized
I can definitely relate to this. For example, practicing for It’s Academic (like Jeopardy) you try to remember the weirdest things about people, and that’s what really makes you remember them.
Leon Trotsky died in Mexico when he was stabbed with an ice pick
Tennessee Williams died by choking on a pill bottle cap
Marie Antoinette said “Let them eat cake!”
It’s also relative to Fahrenheit 451 in terms of how we access and store information.
