Question of the Week #269

Amnesia comes in two forms: one in which you lose your memory of past events, another in which you no longer form new memories. If you took a bad fall and were to suffer one or the other, which would be worse?

I think, as long as you have someone like Adam Sandler to put together a “Previously on…” video for you each day, being unable to form new memories may not be too bad. So I guess I’ll say that losing your entire past would be the worse of the two options.

What do you think? Which version of amnesia would you rather have? As if one gets a choice… Let me know down in the comments!
