How people chunk and how well they chunk can vary wildly. If
you are learning about a topic which you know well, you will
chunk information in very large (relatively speaking) chunks
and retain much, much more than someone who knows nothing about
the subject and who can only chunk little chunks, if any at all.
So, how many chunks could a woodchuck chunk,
if a woodchuck could chunk chunks?
