I'm not as sharp as I used to be and I'm not that old either. I forget words I used to easily recall and use, but now I can't seem to remember them.

It may be because of Twiter, facebook, etc. People are only interested in expressing their viewpoints or thoughts online and in person aren't as interested. To make it worse, there is only a limited space where they can express how they feel about something - so it conditions people into limited viewpoints.
It is a shame that we are heading that way but it seems to be the case.

All symptoms described are indicative of clinical depression, which makes sense, as it sure is depressing living amongst a herd of ignorant and arrogant simpletons, which is depressing, because it sure is depressing.....

Thanks again to all the posters so far.
I am particularly intrigued by those who note spelling and verbal errors (forgetting common words, etc.) I am pretty sure I personally make more such mistakes than I did a year ago.
Not from Queensland or Australia, either.
