    Is it near a long rock wall with a big oak tree at the north end? and under it I'll find a rock that has no earthly business in a Maui hayfield. Piece of black, volcanic glass...and I'll find something buried underneath it?.

    Yeah, around that time I was in a homeroom class with a teacher who threw things at students. At least once, that included a desktop stapler.

    Well, except that black volcanic glass has all kinds of earthly business being in a Maui hayfield. It's the hayfield that has no earthly business being around that rock.

    SHEESH...technicalities... ok then

    Is it near a long rock wall with a big oak tree, that has no earthly business in a Maui, at the north end? and under it I'll find a rock in a Maui hayfield that also has no earthly business in a Maui at all. Piece of black, volcanic glass...and I'll find something buried underneath it?.

    There...now are you happy....

    I’ve seen most -maybe all - of Seinfeld. But probably only once, and as the Hobbit can attest, my memory for any detail is weak. I have to watch something many times to integrate much memory.

    I’ve got really weird memory issues - I can’t remember a to do list to save my life. Long term memory - I don’t forget ANYTHING.

    Through the first few years of our relationship, my wife thought I was making up short term memory issues. Completely unrelated to it, I took what’s called the impact test, which is a computerized pre-screening concussion test I was giving to my athletes at the time. According to it, my short term memory was in the 2nd percentile (for those who don’t know what that means, 98% of the people who’ve taken that test had a better short term memory score than me). My reaction time was 98% percentile.

    I printed the results and showed my boss, who was trying to be the cool guy saying his reaction time was better than most of our athletes’. I buried him on the reaction time. Then I highlighted the short term memory and wrote “now you can’t hold it against me when you ask me to do something and I forget!” That place was a zoo.

    I gave a copy to my wife too.

    How does one take this test? I'm curious to see how bad my short term memory is

    We had to pay for a license/subscription/whatever it’s called. Athletes would sign in under our school’s account and take a pre-season test as a baseline, then retake it after a concussion. We’d compare the pre-test to the post-concussion test as part of our decision on return to activity.

    So long story short, unless you know someone with a license, you’re probably not going to be able to take it. And it’s a pretty in-depth test on several areas at once, so you’d probably come away thinking it wasn’t worth it for that one thing.

    If you know someone in sports medicine like a physician, athletic trainer, etc., ask them if they use it and if you can take the test. It’s basically become standard protocol in colleges athletics and larger high school athletics. I know a few physicians who use it too.

    At this point, you should just remake the post as most of the forum will know about your self defence experience. :p123
