10 Best // Useless Information In My Brain

9.18.2014
the words to every jingle ever.  dogs singing about k9-advantix?  yup.  'the snack that smiles back until you bite their heads off'?  of course.  need the address of stick stickly?  you got it.

every world series winner since 1984.

the alphabet backwards.  i'm 99% sure i can say it faster backwards than forwards.

all the words to semi-charmed life.  and everything by matchbox 20.  and possibly every single other song that came out in the 90s.

the entire script of empire records, without even having it turned on.  and the entire script of weird movie from las vegas that they used to play in the mirage hotel 24 hours a day about a boy who meets real pirates at the treasure island hotel.  no one knows what i'm talking about, that's fine.  no one else practically lived in vegas hotels as a kid.

the cleanest bathrooms from downtown chicago all the way north to wrigleyville, and which have the shortest lines.  and which have bathroom attendants and on what days, because i really like watermelon blow pops with my beer.

which bars in the entire chicago area have 'crack machines' - those touch screen machines sitting on the bar that have video games.  namely, naked girls photo hunt. 

armadillos always have 4 babies and they're all the same gender.

my friends phone numbers, except not the ones they have now.  only the ones i had to dial constantly in the world before cell phones.  so, their parents' landlines.  if i get arrested, guess i'm calling meredith's mom at 2 am...

the entire filmography of nicolas cage. put. the bunny. back. in the box.

imagine if i could free up that space to remember actually important things.  happy friday!

  1. Can definitely remember my friend's house numbers. Ahh, landlines. And great info about armadillos. I wonder if I actually thought about how much useless information in my brain, how much there would be.

  2. I can remember my friends old numbers too and my fave movies from childhood. I can literally speak the whole of 101 dalmatians and mrs doubtfire at the drop of a hat. And if a tv advertisement has a number in it and I hear it daily I can totally remember the numbers etc. Cray!

  4. Haha, this is awesome. I am full of useless information, too. I remember when I was little...like 8 or something, my brother and I wanted a dog. We drove past this shop that had a big sign that they had dogs. My mom said "if you remember the phone number we will get one." She didn't think we would, but boy I STILL know that number 21 years later and we did get our dog. :)

  13. LOL- love this! I'm impressed with your random knowledge! I know about 40 digits of 'pi' because in 9th grade geometry, my teacher had a border that went around the entire room with pi.... I didn't learn anything in that class but I did memorize pi from staring at it constantly!

  14. Remembering old phone numbers is the best -- I use them as PIN numbers and internet passwords now! I used to be able to do the alphabet backwards really well, we did it as a choir warm-up in high school.

  20. I also love the girl naked photo hunt, but I had to limit playing it when I worked in a bar in college b/c it made the bar pervs way too excited.

  25. I am also amazing with 90s songs lyrics, and can also do the alphabet backwards with pretty impressive speed! Guess I was practicing for getting pulled over.

  26. I remember my ex boyfriends phone #. That's only b/c I was 18-20 when we dated and I stalked the fuck out of him from other phones when he wouldn't answer my calls. Ahhhh... romance. Bahahahaha!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Haha my favorite one is the armadillo one because I have a weird obsession with armadillos.

    ReplyDelete

  35. THE JINGLES! If you need empire carpet cleaner's contact info, I'm your girl.

  36. Lol that is definitely a lot of useless information except for the bathroom stuff - that's good to know. You don't want to sit somewhere super unsanitary.. gross! George Costanza had that gift too :P Happy Hump Day Stephanie! -Iva

  37. Hahaha yes, Stick Stickly! For whatever reason, I memorized Andrew's phone number when we first started dating. He changed it years ago (4? 5?) and I can barely remember the new one. I also have a weird memory for the plays I was in in elementary school... we aren't talking Broadway musicals, we're talking one off kiddie plays. This is not useful at all.
