I Forget What This Post Is About

I'm getting to that age now where i go into a room and then forget what i went in there for so walk back out only to remember once i have sat down again.
The same happened here today when i sat down with a brilliant idea for a blog post but by the time i got the page up i had forgotten it.
There is a new study by a Canadian University, i forget which one, which claims that being forgetful is a sign of high intelligence as it is important that the brain forgets irrelevant details and instead focuses on the stuff that’s going to help make decisions in the real world.
Professor someone and whatshisname proposed that memory is utilised to optimise decision making by retaining valuable information and letting the other unimportant stuff go and therefore working exactly as it should, or something like that, i don't remember  the specifics.
If someone can name who won the FA Cup every year since 1945 then their memory is full of useless information while if you get halfway through a blog post, forget what you are writing about and end up writing about tree's, then you are intelligent and the chief of the Country Land and Business Association said that so few oak's have been grown that they plan to 11 million new trees
over the next decade.
