"Yeah, sure," you say but just watch a couple and believe me your "mental sharpness" will be well on its way to fully "in tune."
Another reminder why this forum is the best. Just watched three "elementary" Chemistry videos that fascinated me. Thank you, Ron, for the recommendation.

I stay sharp by accident, while doing the annual 1040...or updating the tax spreadsheet throughout the year to stay on top of estimates. Remember the first Mission Impossible movie where Tom Cruise had to twist his way across a room full of infra-red laser beam alarms and avoid touching any of them? That is what doing my return feels like. So yeah, it's a brain booster!
