That's the only way you could've forgotten what we've been talking about if what we were talking about is true.

Re: Shrinking brains means we are smarter?

Just when it was getting interesting. I think we were talking about drunken men who fell out of windows on New Years and then had their brains shrunk.

What a strange topic.
