People usually spend a great amount of time working at their offices. As a result, they often tend to learn a lot of things that would never be used outside of their jobs. As memory does not 'decay', people tend to memorize all of it. Now, one simple question from a Twitter user is making people remember every useless piece of information they learned at work. Whether it is how to get furniture into rooms, or how to tell the difference between male and female fish, people have retained a whole variety of random information because of the jobs they have held.
It all started when a Twitter user asked, "what absolutely embarrassing dumb c*** lives inside your head because of your current or old day job(s)? mine include recipes for toffee, weird serial codes for air conditioners, how to break down a shooting script, and the basic principles of how to make dialysis water."

The one-day-old tweet has collected over 1,000 'likes' already. People were soon responding to the question:

People definitely retained a lot of useless facts

But some pieces of information were actually quite useful
