    Yeah. That too. My cousin moved to Boston 4 years ago...he's starting to get the geography of it...

    Geography. I could have sworn that Minnesota was next to Nevada...maybe a little above, but apparently it's at the top of the country and in the middle! And I'm no better with Canada. I spent 2 years thinking that Calgary was near Maine-ish. I couldn't for the life of me get why Nickelback thought that they were 3000 miles from home...then I got home and looked on a map...

    I had the hardest time with left and right. It dawned on me, when I was nearly sixteen, that since I'm right handed..."write is right". I never had any trouble with left and right after that.

    that's EXACTLY how i remember it!


    i've always been fairly good at math, but i'm very directionally challenged. when giving me directions, do NOT tell me north/south/east/west. tell me left or right please!

    AND I have never understood all that atom, proton, electron stuff in science, even though I got a good grade in my A level science!

    Anyone else got any "mental blanks"
    I've gone through plenty of years in school learning about the < and > symbols and I'm always stumped. I'm in my second to last year in high school and I'm just now beginning to understand them better. Haha.

    Re: Things you have never understood!

    I like to bid on many things on EBay and usually bid within the last five minutes of the auction....where I can be on hand to up my bid if necessary.

    All the auctions end in Pacific Time (I am in Eastern). So, yes, I realize I have to subtract 3 hours from the time the auction ends out west for it to end here on the East Coast. At times that is not enough, since they do the military time deal. So instead of just subtracting 3 I have to figure out just what time the darn auction ends if it is anytime after noon!

    Sometimes I end up figuring it out on a scrap of paper! And sometimes I still get it wrong and miss the end of the auction.

    Great thread!

    I have a great sense of direction. Drop me down anywhere and I can tell which way is North, South, etc. And, Port is always the left side of the boat or airplane (same number of letters). The < always points to the bigger number (alligator taking the bite). Oh, and "I before E except after C" is a good rule in spelling. Guess that is what happens when you have a pilot and an English teacher for parents.

    However, fractions and measurements are difficult for me. I never can remember how many teaspoons there are in a tablespoon. Or how many ounces there are in a cup.

    I always have to say "30 days has September, April, June and November
    All the rest have 31, and February’s great with 28 and Leap Year’s February’s fine with 29" to remember the number of days in a month.
