Ah yes. I'm sure those episodes of Thomas the Tank Engine I watched as a child had some sort of point to them, but did they really have such moral significance that I would need to carry them around with me until nearly into my 20's?
Why is my memory so selective? Why do I remember all the dumb, irrelevant shite from my childhood and not crucial revision notes I'd been perusing 20 minutes prior to a mock exam? :S

Same, I just got done reinserting the ram for the nth time and didn't even consider that the thread could be about human memory.
I think memory just tends to being random-selective. At least I usually only remember some random things, but if you want to guarantee remembering something you should regularly revisit the matter. Then there are some things which cling to my memories even though I want to forget and erase them, but that's another topic.
