A Killer Resource For Becoming A SuperHuman!

The Unbelievable Secret To Getting Free Donuts While You Relieve Boredom At Work And Get Really, Really Fat!
It was just another Magnetic day here at the Magnetic Memory Method headquarters until I opened my email and a subject line leapt out at me …
Thanks for the Donuts!
And so I asked myself … What manner of spam chicanery is this?
No chicanery at all. Check it out!
Good Morning Anthony!
I am emailing to thank you for the donuts.
As a fun activity and to help take our minds off of work, I made a wager with my fellow office coworkers that I could memorize – verbatim – a chart of makes, submakes, model numbers and letters, RV types, sub-types, and the 2-digit VIN identifier of 83 RVs as produced by our company.
Again, this was for fun and by no means a testament to memorizing things “verbatim.”
If I lost, I would buy the office donuts. If I won, the office would by donuts and I could have as many as would be considered gluttonous.
Though this apparently seemed to them a silly bet that I could never win, I did warn the office that I was quite confident in my ability to do this. So, after a 2-week study window and a 20-question “test” (plus many shouts of random VIN IDs from the non-believers) I received enough donuts to move my belt out a notch.
Again, !!THANKS!! For the donuts and I’m sure you will be happy to know I passed your information out to everyone as a gift for their participation.
And because this email comes with an amazing graph of what Matt memorized … I made a video for you so you can see it!

A Memory Palace Made Of BEAR MACE!
Okay, not really, but check this Memory Palace sent to us by the amazing actor Matt Newby who has a hilarious produce spoof over at Famousoldie.com.
Wanted to share with you some things!
First when I started keeping a memory journal I found myself not wanting to open it because well I guess it just looked boring to me … nothing to exciting about a green composition book. So I printed out of retro futuristic designs and things this resulting in
Now I want to open it!
Second I’ve been doing cards using the Person Action Object method and an 18 room Memory Palace I built in Minecraft.
Between Dec when it started and today I’ve done it 17 times with an average time memorized 12min and an average time recalled 9min missing about 4 on average.
I feel like I’ve hit an “OK plateau”. Do you think I haven’t done it enough times to feel that way yet? I’ve done a lot of work with the PAO method. I got your book last night about cards and I feel like I’ve done so much work with the PAO I don’t want to switch methods just yet. I did however love the idea of breaking it down into 4 sets good way to make it seem easier!
I will get this down to 1 minute! Do you have any drills I could do? Should I try other methods?
You da main man with da plan!
PS I’m an actor I loved your last podcast!
Having come this far, I thought …
Why Not Show You Some More Amazing Memory Palaces Created By People Just Like You?
Why not, indeed?
Here’s one by a young person in grade school sent to me by her teacher (with the permission of the parents, of course).
Here’s another presented by a Magnetic Memory Method course participant down in Australia:
And to close off this episode of the Magnetic Memory Method Podcast, let’s look inside one of my very own Memory Palaces!
So, I hope you enjoyed this episode.
But even if you hated it … what are you waiting for?
Get out there and build some Memory Palaces so that you can memorize anything you please!
