I think my Brain’s name is Brian, or Brianna.

 

Oh the Brain.

Brains!!!!

Guts!!!

GLORY!!!

BLOOOD.

 

Back to the brain.

It’s something alright.

 

I mean, how little we really do know about it?  Its why’s and stuff?

Although, we do know a few neat things about the brain, and then some.

 

A FEW FACTS ABOUT BRIANNA

 

  • The average adult brain weighs about 3 pounds (That’s like a box of sugar and a one pound bag of sour gummi worms).

(sorry for the drool)

 

 

 

  • An elephant’s, on the other hand, weighs 13 lbs and 3.64 oz (THINK OF HOW MANY GUMMI WORMS THAT WOULD BE?!).
  • The human brain consists of 60% fat.
  • When conscious, our brains can generate between 10 and 23 watts of power (AHA!).
  • The brain can live 4-6 minutes without oxygen.
  • The number of average thoughts a day we have are about 70,000.
  • There are no pain receptors in the brain, it feels no pain (badass).
  • Our brain keeps things illuminated each time we blink (that way we don’t go crazy feeling like we’re in a room with an annoying sibling flicking the lights on and off).
  • Studies show that the brain shrinks after we hit 30 (I guess that makes some insults possible now, yikes).

 

 

 

WHOA AND GOODBYE.

  1. Hm, that’s interesting about the “keeping things illuminated” part… If we could maintain that for a couple minutes, walking through a dark room could get a lot easier.
