Remembering what does what. That's why I need an analogue camera!

First you forget to do up your trouser flies after having a pee. Next, you forget to undo them before!

Why does my milk keep ending up in the wall cabinet and my jar of coffee in the fridge?

Or more often, you go to bed then realise you need a pee. You then spend the rest of the night waiting.

^ you would have thought 'God' would have known about the prostate and the associated issues, knowing everything as he does. It would have been better if he'd placed the damn organ in a much more accessible place, such as your trouser pocket, on the end of an umbilical, dead easy to dispose of with this simple mod.

Then you forget you've forgotten this and go out with a dark stain down one leg of your trousers!

Like so many things medical we are now living well beyond our intended 'design life', so things are going wrong that were never tested beyond six decades of use.

Added to which, our modern lifestyles, food and social habits probably don't help.
