This will earn you a permanent entry in your record, which they will recite (among all the others) whenever they need 'proof' what kind of evil person you are. After you heard that litany once too often and try to shrug that old baggage off, you will not only be evil. You will also be uncaring and cold.
I have lived with several Zen masters - all of them were cats.
His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
As long as I remember the wife's birthday I'm OK, all the rest she will remind me.
- Better than google calendar because it self programs and self recharges
- seems to find own way home (i.e. no need for 'where's my phone' app)
- free/bonus cooking app (do ask - not all models have this)
- makes me do other things I don't feel like doing yet,
- way more expensive.
- been told difficult to upgrade but not tried that yet

Or the trick question "you know when my birthday is, right?"
"Uhhh... Sure I do?"
I never remember the exact date.
It took me about 25 years to get my parents birthdays right, what makes any girl think I can remember hers faster?
And I'm now at an age that by the time I'll remember hers I'll be forgetting it pretty soon as well
My condolences, they say elephants have good memory, but it's nothing compared to a wife and a forgotten birthday. Decades from now, you (and everyone within earshot) will still be hearing about it.

Not a problem I have ever had - the wife tells me where we are going for her birthday and my birthday and the kids birthdays and the grand kids birthdays. A nice meal out is about the only celebration of birthdays we have.
Never underestimate the power of human stupidity
Okay, so the last of my tribe will get her license in late May or early June. The Honda CR-V in the family has been claimed by her - no problem - but that means I need a daily driver. We're talking East Coast USA, and I'm an old fart < 60.
Now I'm a *seriously* cheap bastard when it comes to cars - my mandatory requirements are reliability, a sunroof, and A/C. After that, I'm not allowed to drive anything red, and I won't drive purple.
I can work myself into a mess shopping for cars. The lady of my life says that it must be in this decade, so it's 2010+. Is there an official name for being able to shop forever but never make a decision?

Not just you. One of my current autos is a 1998 Toyota Sienna. Wife won't let go and I won't argue. Go to the nearest Car Max, not necessarily to purchase but to shop. Many models of many brands for tire kicking. Some decent deals as well. We sold a 20 year old Lincoln at one, not great but fair and little risk. Also visit edmunds.com (among others), Internet shopping eliminates a lot of the haggling. You still get hosed but won't notice so much.
If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
I don't know the name for that and I'm not sure it's a disorder. It sounds like just plain, old indecision to me.
FWIW, I am a big fan of Hondas. I currently have two of them, both with more than 90K miles, and there have been no problems with either of them. As added bonuses, they get rather good gas mileage for vehicles of their types and they are made* in the USA. I have a Ridgeline and a Pilot.
* made == assembled. The components come from all over the planet.
