do you forget more than you retain?

I like to think that I learn at least one new thing each day. Honestly, its probably more like three or four new things most days. Unfortunately, most new things I learn I file away in my mind where they are promptly forgotten. This, indeed, is a sorry state to be in. Always learning with equal amounts of forgetting yields nothing new.

So it is with great satisfaction that I can claim a new fact that has stuck in my mind for over a week now. I don't know how long this fact will be with me, so I figure I better get it down in print before it escapes the precious gray matter.

Did You Know: 12,000 laptop computers are left at airports every week

A startling realization, isn't it? I was glad I didn't' have my laptop last week when I was flying. I probably would have forgotten it at the airport.
