    FYI, that used to be the case, but in 2013 this happened:

    I've never met a stupid doctor (nor a stupid biologist). Having a good memory is part of being smart.

    my sister-in-law has a phenomenal memory, freakish in fact, she could be in a side show....but she's a total idiot, if she had an IQ above 80 I'd be amazed...
    a good memory is essential but on it's own it's good only for party tricks...
