    May I throw in some quotes from our beloved genius Albert Einstein:

    “Never memorize something that you can look up.”

    “Paper is to write things down that we need to remember. Our brains are used to think.”

    also books are renondly full of wrong information but after all that reading are you going to cross check it, and rarly have i seen comments written at the bottom of liberary books by people telling me their opinion on the page, like this comment :)

    what about those people with bad memories, i suffer with an illness that makes my memory suck, i can offten rememver that i have learnt something but i cant rememeber the details about it and thats frustrating, but i am a geek and smart phone is at hand…

    also a damn site faster than going to the liberary and trying to find the correct book and then hoping its not written by a baffoon!!

    Lol babro’s phone isn’t so smart. Well at least google will try to correct spelling even if your phone won’t.

    Maybe it’s just me but I am usually genuinely interested in things that I take the time to go look up, be it in a book or online. I usually remember the vast majority of it either way.

    I totally agree. I will often jump from page to page on Wikipedia just because I love learning about different topics.

    @ KORE & CODY :
    With you on that. I am not much for reading for fun, but I love to research something I am interested in. The problem (lol) I am easily sidetracked, which ruins my “not much for reading for fun” theory, lol :) That is how I ended up on this page, after all (sidetracked). I was inirtialy

    Sorry, big fingers on an Android phone keyboard, hit submit by accident.
    I was initialy trying to find a way to upsize my phone’s internal memory, so far no luck finding it. But I was sidetracked by this section :p If anyone knows if it is even possible, or allowed for that matter, please inform me.
    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the laugh Woremochine. Good luck with the phone.

    Really, I can’t post my thoughts on this because I’m using “spam keywords”. Crappy detection. I haven’t said anything that even closely relates to spam.
