I never thought much about it but, when sum1 asks what did you do in 1991 or when you were 22 I draw a blank! Events I remember, but, I have problems associating many events with the year or my age when the event occured. I can remember "In 1492 Collumbus sailed the ocean blue". But, I cant remember what I did or how old I was in 1992 without creating a timeline... and a lot of concentration! Thats the other thing, CONCENTRATION. When Im faced with a task which requires intense concentration, (such as remembering date,age,event correlations) I get extremely stressed out. Ironically, I have been very successful in buisiness and the stock market. I did well and got out before the market went down the toilet but I dont remember what year it was! Im guessing 1998 or 1999 tho, lol! What year did I buy into Amoco Im asked and I say a year before it was bought by British Petroleum. What year was that? I dunno! What did I do Thursday 3 weeks ago, I cant remember! AM I THE ONLY ONE???
