It's kind of neat how we can forget what we had for dinner a week ago, but we can still remember a shameful moment from elementary school. Our brains are pretty cool, forgetting and just practically deleting unimportant things. Because if they didn't, well our heads would all look like Jimmy Neutrons', amirite?

They're like hard drives. Nothing is completely erased but the less we use certain knowledge, the harder it is to retrieve. Sometimes I can't remember things until something comes up that makes me remember it.

I would trade a normal sized head for superhuman intelligence and memory any day.

It's also weird how it's controlled by one of the smallest parts of the brain(the hippocampus.)
