Hi All,

Ever walk into a room and wonder why you are there?
You are not losing your mind. It is actually normal.

This is a four minute video that will explain it.

Do Doorways Actually Make Us Forget Things?


Well, your are still losing your mind, just not for
that reason.

That was good. Science still cannot understand how the brain works.
Mom sometimes had a story of "why" she into the room. Once, I put a
teaspoon of salt in my coffee -- dang kitchen.

Did your ever notice people never step on the doorway threshold when
crossing into a room or go outside.

I had a sliding 8' patio door so clean I turned around and walked
right back in it.

There was a Pickles cartoon I tried to find.
Old man walks into the room and tells his wife he forgot what he was up to.
She says, "You do that a lot."
He says, "I heard that forgetfulness is a sign of intelligence."
She says, "Where did you hear that?"
He says, "I forgot."

Would that be like avoiding the cracks on a concrete sidewalk?

Glass doors should always have a little dirt on them.

Thats tough to do when the sidewalk is made of 12in by 12in patio
blocks.

Not really. Carpet layers seam carpet at the cent door jamb to
transition. Less likely the seam breaks. Easy on the eye also.

It only happened before I moved in. Stain glass trinkets or decals are
suggested. My dog learned the first time not to run into a closed
glass door;)

It only took me once. I don't remember how old I was.
I wonder if afterwards, had open the door and gone
through it, would I have forgotten the source of the
pain and the humiliation? Why am I in this room and
why does my head hurt and why is everyone laughing at me?

Last year we had a bird attacking our windows. Apparently a lot of
birds do this because they think their reflection is a rival for their
territory.

In a previous home we had a lanai where what would normally be walls
were completely replaced by sliding glass doors. It was never really
a hazard, but it was really too plain looking for our tastes. We
worked with a glass specialist who used acid etching to create
tropical plant and bird designs that completely transformed the lanai
and also reduced the possibiolity of someone walking throough one
when it was closed.

It was gold finches flying at our sliders and windows. Pictures of
snakes could have deterred them. I read that both male and female when
nesting attack rivals but just act alarmed at predators. They were quite
annoying for a couple of weeks. If your designs were realistic they
might attract or repel animals.

When I was growing up, we had a glass door in back. Then we got a storm
door (another glass door behind the old one). That really confused the
dog, who thought that if someone opened the door it would be open.

BTW, at that time you could examine a randomly-selected square inch of
carpet. There's a good chance of finding at least one piece of dog food
in it. That dog would walk around while chewing.

That happens to me too darned often.

The only time it doesn't happen is when I walk through the door to a
bathroom.
