'(too lazy too type the title :P)' contains 26 characters (32 including spaces) ['to' is spelt wrong by the way], while 'general knowledge' contains only 16 characters (17 including the space). It would have been easier to just type the whole title. (I believe you are joking though)

If you haven't seen it, go watch Hitchcock's "The 39 Steps," which starts out in a musical hall, where our hero asks the memory expert how many miles is it from Winnipeg to Montreal. Before there was JetPunk there was Mr. Memory (who knows the answer, of course).
