Speaking of collecting and arranging DVDs and Blu-rays - a funny anecdote of mine. Back in the day, I used to have a very strange way of arranging my discs. My absolute favourites were displayed on a very prominent shelf. The rest I kept in medium-sized plastic boxes - without any order. The result: nobody but me in my family could find the correct discs without searching for 20 minutes. I had them in my head (visual memory) - so I could find any disc within seconds. I had not even made a list of all my discs at the time - as I knew my approximately 1000 discs by heart. However, I decided to catalogue and thematically arange my collection for the public good. Result: now it was me who couldn't find anything anymore.
