Who has useless information in their head?

This comment by mohair struck a chord (not Am, still having trouble with that one)

Just how much useless dreck do you have in your head, and what is the worst of it?

I was in a meeting at work today with a woman I haven't seen in 9 years and noticed she had a different last name. She was shocked that I remember her former name.

I remember userids of many former co-workers .

The California license plate on my '75 Fiat 124 that I owned in '77 was 422 MUO.

The phone number we had when I was a kid. My best friend's phone number from the same time period.

I can name every Star Fleet captian in alphabetical order.

I know which cars show up best on radar and which ones almost dont. And which ones give bogus readings.

I know how to reprogram a coke machine.

I know my ex-wifes netflix user name and password (shes getting tired of Spaceballs).

I know the flash pattern that turns traffic lights green (ok, thats actually usefull).

When I was working for Motorola in the Chicago burbs, one of my coworkers had a strobe on his dash programmed with pattern. He claimed to use it regularly.

Useless crap in my head... absolutely.

We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But, we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us: in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But, what we found out is that each one of us is: a brain... and an athlete... and a basketcase... a princess... and a criminal... Does that answer your question?

Sincerely yours, The Breakfast Club.

when you walk on by, will you call my name...

Cue the credits....

NOPE I DON'T KEEP ANY RANDOM USELESS CRAP AT ALL.
Let's talk ralph wiggum next, cause I don't have ANY of his quotes memorized either.

Excellent flashback to the glory days. However, all Simple Minds fans are cringing at being confused with Simply Red (CoolCrowd approved sappy pop).

I knew it was "SIMPLE" Something... Close... damn, now I'll actually have another bit of useless info to tag the previous info as incorrect, and a third bit of info to give the proper band name next time... WOw, it's getting even more cluttered in there.

I always thought it was spelled Ulaan Batar.

I can still diagram the Krebs Cycle from HS biology, I know the Gettysburg address by heart (had to memorize it in fifth grade), I remember my inmate identification number from an unfortunate incident in Yugoslavia several decades ago, the combination to my gym locker when I was 8, and the number of seconds I lasted the first time I entered the the garden of delights (6).

Unfortunately, I CANNOT remember: Any of my credit card numbers, when to take my blood pressure medication, where I park my car at work, the license plate numbers on my car or my bike, my anniversary, my wife's birthday, to keep my mouth shut, and which direction to turn the faucet to make the water hot in the shower.

How about sharing these useful/less info with us... I'm interested...

And while you're at it, since you seem to know about these useless/ful things, perhaps you can help me figure out what is constantly tripping the laser detection on my Escort detector when I use it in my Odyssey... in other cars it doesn't "act up." It seems totally random as there is no pattern...:confused:

But then again I haven't got hit with laser for a while (I don't think cops are using laser much anymore... at least in IL.... laser being finicky and all... ) so I am possibly thinking of turning the darn laser function off...

I have a buddy who remembers everything about old TV shows, dead presidents, trivia answers etc and such... once when we were having a light argument I told him he's full of useless infomation... I've realized later it really hurt him... kinda broke him... I think he was really proud of being able to remember all the things but my comment sort of stuck him in a wrong way that deflated him badly somehow...since then I really regretted having made the comment that day...


I can't get no satisfaction, I can't get no satisfaction
'Cause I try and I try and I try and I try
I can't get no, I can't get no

When I'm drivin' in my car, and the man come on the radio
He's tellin' me more and more about some useless information
Supposed to fire my imagination


I sometimes feel like this song here...


btw thanks morrison... for reminding me to take my medicine... I totally forgot about it today....
