For me, the task of memorizing detail has always been a chore. Yet, it seems that much of the education we all receive involves a LOT of such activity. We take history classes, and memorize lots of names, dates, and places that have no meaning whatsoever to us, regurgitate them onto a test, and hope our score is above a 'C' when we complete the semester.
