* Since I have not given you (much beloved) people much food for thought, I am posting a couple of totally random and erratic (therefore Brownian) thoughts so that you can use it as a bailout plan for your mental retardation brought about by listening to news readers, political leaders like Mr. Obama, Mr. Karat, Mr. V Gandhi, Mr. Everybody, and also the intensely silly statements issued by whothefugisthis starlets in your local newspaper supplement (“I have a glass of carrot juice and an apple for breakfast, I love Gucci shoes and Ermenegildo Zegna ties for my boyfriend, and I MUST shop for them when I tour abroad for my
shoes shows”, etc.)
*A man who remembers everything from age five is said to be suffering from hyperthymestia, a rare disease affecting only four other people, who remember every crap they took in life. What a life, and what a disease to have, poor things! It is better to sustain some related affective disorder of the brain. Like gynecomestia, something I have. Not gynecomastia (which means male breasts-something I, er, don’t have, and which many women find sexy), but with an ‘e’. Extract from Wonkipedia: “A disorder, exclusively affecting heterosexual males, where they remember every girl they have loved and not loved, married and not married…” These dudes are always seen to be having retrograde ejaculation, which means they are making exclamation remarks about some girl or the other they remember from the long
post past at any given point in time. Of course, doctors know retrograde ejaculation to mean something else, but who cares for doctors, ejaculating or otherwise?
*** I could blog more frequently if I could write on fitness and health issues, but I respect my readers’ preferences for my inane barley-water humor, and I refrain from inflicting my views and experiences of things like the Glute Ham Raise. Whatever. Would you like that? I can hear the dismay already!
**** Update: I have created a new health/fitness blog: the name is (cringe) “six pack doc”. I am truly sorry, but the deed has been done in a moment of madness.
Doc, i am going off tangent here but i just read this post about the kid who died at IIT Kharagpur, and still a little shaken.
Points to a very sad state of affairs …wonder what y0ur thoughts are.
The post is here.
Looks like there was a problem with the html link.
Here it is … http://bit.ly/M0IOP
Is it possible for someone to remember everything from age 5?! Truly amazia!
Some memories are best left forgotten. Nature’s indeed intelligent to pick only four..
Doc, you have to separate the two streams of thoughts and space for blogging perhaps? 🙂
would love another “link love” post 🙂
Fascinating enough that it’s possible to remember every day of one’s life for all those years – but imagine calling it a syndrome and having a name for it! Nice!
That is reality. No medical infrastructure outside of the big city. Life is cheap in India, and thank Govt. for that!
Thanks for the genius idea. Have started already. Am getting ready to post there. Topic: “Why I couldn’t post”, which is about my most common post topic.
You will see one, soon.
We have to label everything. Otherwise how else can we regulate and legislate against ‘IT’?
I was fine iwth the fitness posts. Anyway, lets see how the six pack thingie goes.
Aha! a new blog. I need some suggestions on how to stay fit when you have a job in which you sit on a chair for 15 hours, have no time to exercise and love to eat oily non vegetarian and junk food. Please help!!
Very Interesting post! Thank you for such interesting resource!
PS: Sorry for my bad english, I’v just started to learn this language 😉

Oh, so that’s what Hitchcock’s ‘Memory Man’ was all about! Thanks for the info.
BTW, is it hyperthymestia or hyperthymesia? Wiki shows up the latter.
