Wow! This is a load off my mind!

Brains of older people are slow because they know so much. People do not decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to re call facts because they have more information in their brains, scientists believe . Much like a computer struggles as the hard drive gets full, so, too, do humans take longer to access information when their brains are full.

Researchers say this slowing down process is not the same as cognitive decline . The human brain works slower in old age, said Dr. Michael Ramscar, but only because we have stored more information over time. The brains of older people do not get weak. On the contrary, they simply know more.

Also, older people often go to another room to get something and when they get there, they stand there wondering what they came for.It is NOT a memory problem, it is nature's way of making older people do more exercise.

SO THERE ! ! ! !


Now when I reach for a word or a name , I won't excuse myself by saying "I'm having a senior moment".

Now, I'll say, "My disk is full!"

I have more friends I should send this to, but right now I can't remember their names.


So, please forward this to your friends; they may be my friends, too.

Actually, I think my problems began when I upgraded my "Mainframe" from Mainframe XP to Mainframe 8!

Alcohol slows the mental process and kills brain cells
Coffee speeds the mental process and enhances memory

I AM A COFFEE-HOILC (Except at Starbucks, can't stand the taste of Charbucks).. And very likely the only reason I'm not an Alcoholic is I can't stand the taste of that stuff either.

That said> I have a theory.. How you tell the passage of time.

Time is measured, by the mind, as a percentage of your life..

So when you are say 5 years old the time between New Years and Christmas is nearly 20% of your life (At one it's 100%) so that's a long long time.. But when you are 50, it's a brief 2% of your age so it seems like "New Years was only last week and hear we are singing Jingle Bells again" . Of course the way many businesses are going.... That is not far off ... Literally.

I just wish there as a DELETE option to thin down some of the useless files in there or a way to move them to an external drive so as to speed up the main system.

So the flip side to this theory is that I know some people (who shall remain nameless) that will have a lightning fast brain well into their advanced years because they haven't learned a darn thing yet!!!!!! What little they know will re readily accessible.

That is an interesting spin on the theory. Those that learned little or nothing can recall "little or nothing" faster. Seems plausible to me. And, it think that we've all run into those nameless people in our lifetimes.

I think my boys had it at a early age! Every time something was broken or disappeared I would ask "Who Dun-it" . The answer was always "Nobody Dun-it" I never did catch that guy - but someday I will - he owes me a bunch of excuses!

There is a lot of those out there. They breed and..... they vote.
