    This is true, Dr. Oz actually had a segment on this phenomena

    Ever walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only to completely forget what that purpose was?

    Turns out, doors themselves are to blame for these strange memory lapses.

    Psychologists at the University of Notre Dame have discovered that passing through a doorway triggers what's known as an Event Boundary in the mind, separating one set of thoughts and memories from the next. Your brain files away the thoughts you had in the previous room and prepares a blank slate for the new locale.

    Thank goodness for studies like this. It's not our age, it's that damn door!

    Did I post this up already?

    I can respect someone who I do not agree with, but I have NO respect for someone who puts others down in a public forum. That is the hallmark of someone who has no integrity, and cannot be trusted.

    Hmm. Why did I click on this thread again?
