Sometimes it can feel as though our brains have run out of storage space, and that there’s no more room to fit in new facts and figures. In reality, this is completely false; Scientific American estimates that our brain can hold the equivalent of a million gigabytes worth of memories.

What better way to test this theory out than to spend the month feeding our brains with handy information we can retrieve at a later date. This is your chance to commit to memory something you’ve always wanted to learn – a foreign language, the flags of the world, the periodic table, the lyrics to your favourite hip-hop song! Whatever it is, November is the month to do it and the toilet is the place to do it in.
