0% FUTILITY*F = U.Ti+Li.tY: This is known as the futility constant. Once the forgetfulness happens it is futile to try to remember the missing bit. Tony McCoy O'Grady explains: The only problem with acronyms I find is that I think of bits of them in the most inappropriate places and/or forget the details later. This is especially true when I feel that the solution is a cracker. There is probably a mathematical relationship which states that the probability of forgetfulness (F) is in direct proportion to the uniqueness (U) of the solution multiplied by the inappropriateness (i) of the time (T) plus the inappropriateness of the location (L) when the Yippee moment occurs (inspiration strikes) this is then written (tY)
