    Who knows? Maybe someday, something will happen that requires knowledge of every country capitol in the world. Maybe I'll need to know the 35th digit of pi for some reason in the future. None of it's really useless...Okay, maybe a little

    It is funny how my mind adsorbs it!

    Why? I can remember obscure facts and information and quite often forget birthdays or important things like that.

    The action of yelling "Geronimo"

    when falling originates from the 1940s when military men were testing parachuting from planes. One man claimed he wasn't scared and to prove it he said he would yell "Geronimo" when jumping "as loud as hell" so that the other men would know it was him who jumped

    Everyday I wake up full of useless knowledge.

    My head is full of yesterday. Yesterday is the past and therefore useless. So now everyday I wake up, head full, I set aside time intended to empty my head of yesterday. To make room for today. The present. In the moment.

    If there are more than one queen in a new ant
