Here's what I dreamt up one day... don't ask me what I was doing.

Scientists are getting pretty close to mapping all the memory centers of the brain. There is a medication that they can give you that will help you forget any traumatic event in your life, used primarily on soldiers with PTSD. The study of the brain is progressing so rapidly.

My thought was, what if they can take a snapshot of a top student's brain, separate out the class material from the parties and socialization, then either by computer chip or direct brain reconfiguration, store that info into YOUR brain.

You could finish a 4 year degree in a day, perhaps.

The question... if you could do this, would you?
