I have a second piece of paper (in my back pocket) with some other word on it, just to make sure I'm never lost.

I stopped writing shopping lists. I don't need them. I just carry a piece of paper with "the usual" written on it. I can go to a store and buy the same things I usually buy without having to remember anything, because I have it on paper.

It also helps when someone asks me what did I have for breakfast.

I won't go into details but the main idea goes like this: let's say you have 5192/7. You can write 5192 as 5000+100+90+2 but you can also do it like this: 7(555)+7(11)+7(9)+2 but you that's obviously less than 5192 so you can add respective complements 1115 23 27 (finding them is trivial). 1115 = 7(111)+223+7(11)+23+7(1)+5 and so on

Yelp is an extortion racket. They remove bad reviews for a price which means poor owned businesses get lower star ratings. They hold your reputation and livlihood for ransom. And now they get to decide if youre racist or not.

I don't remember if I told you that but I have a perfect memory.
