Is Keppra the problem?

My nephew takes Keppra for his epilepsy but I feel the meds caused his severe lack of attention. He was a seemingly alert, outgoing kid before the meds and since he's taken them for 7 years, he's displayed off behavior and his coordination is like a baby's. Is this side effect unique to Keppra or does epilepsy sometimes cause certain learning disabilities?

So many options . . .

I live and work in midtown Manhattan and was walking home from work today when I was stopped by a woman. I'd guess she was somewhere between 50 and 70 - yes, I'm terrible at estimating age. She was dressed well and conservatively. She told me I reminded her of someone she used to know, that she lived nearby, and wondered if I'd like to get lunch or dinner with her sometime later during the week. [more inside]

Mental Swiss-Army Knife (in a Moleskine)

I have a graph-ruled Moleskine that is begging to be turned into a compendium of obscure, fascinating, and perhaps occasionally useful reference material. Some of the things I want to put in there are Rubik's Cube algorithms, keys to reading non-Latin alphabets, some simple math formulas (Trachtenberg math, e.g.), rules of thumb for estimating distance/altitude, and whatever else. I'm imagining the user would bust it out of his/her bag and use the knowledge within to solve a wide range of MacGyver/James Bond/bar bet problems. An intellectual "Swiss army knife", if you will. Any and all ideas are welcome!
