The Human Brain

weighs an average of 3 pounds in a man and two pounds, twelve ounces in a woman. It is the size of two clenched fists held tightly together.

The capacity of the human brain has been expressed as the number one followed by 6.5 million miles of zeros - a number so large that it would stretch from the earth to the moon and back again more than thirteen times.

The Brain--is wider than the Sky--
For--put them side by side--
The one the other will contain
With ease--and You--beside.

Konstantin! We all need to just buck up and move to the same city. You, me, Brendt, Caitlin, everyone from 504 Catherine, and some other nice folks. I don't like this moving away nonsense!
