Lets refine this.

As a rule of thumb. One should know at least as many as their age up to 50.
After that, additional shortcut memory should take into account years spent on a computer (15 per year) and skill level: Min 10 for those considered computer illiterate (of all ages And years spent on a computer doesn't count), for intermediate users it is age + years on computer , for advanced users it is age + years on computer + 45, any thing above that is bonus.

So, by that logic, I should know 31(age) + 135 (9 years on computer * 15) = 166

Only about 156 left to go. Is there any chance this rule of thumb will catch on?

Feel free to add on/refine the rule yourself - its opensource
