Brains

Brains of older people are slow because they know so much. People do not
decline mentally with age, it just takes them longer to recall 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

This is my story and I'm sticking to it!



One more time who are you ?

As I get older my FAT table gets larger and my memory is more thoroughly fragmented.

I have read that Einstein only had used 20% of his brain.. I think I have a lot of brand new memory if I can remember where it is at..

Of the many things I have lost in my life, the one I miss most is my mind.

Agree. All my life I have been 5' 8". Based on your assumption I must be well over 6' now!

How can you forward stories like this? Often I find jokes and stories I would like to forward on but don’t know how.

Makes sense, but it would be nice to have a de-fragment app. Maybe we could just invoke format c: and start over.
