Have a photographic memory.

Seneca writings on The Shortness Of Life. I recommend you look it up, it begins “It’s not that we have a short time to live…”.
What is something you learned in the last week?
When you walk into a supermarket you look to your right. Supermarkets also put fruit/vegetables in the front of the store and put biscuits/sweets at the back. Subconsciously you think you have done a good thing by buying healthy which makes you more likely to buy naughty near the end.
What is your favourite website?
Facebook. It has 2 billion active users. 1 in 5 web pages viewed across the world is Facebook.
How many e-mails are sitting in your inbox?
Zero, I put them all in their specific campaign related folders.
