Left Brain / Right Brain


Left brain:
I am the left brain. I am a scientist. A mathematician. I love the familiar. I categorize. I am accurate. Linear. Analytical. Strategic. I am practical. Always in control. A master of words and language. Realistic. I calculate equations and play with numbers. I am order. I am logic. I know exactly who I am.

Right brain:
I am the right brain. I am creativity. A free spirit. I am passion. Yearning. Sensuality. I am the sound of roaring laughter. I am taste. The feeling of sand beneath bare feet. I am movement. Vivid colors. I am the urge to paint on an empty canvas. I am boundless imagination. Art. Poetry. I sense. I feel. I am everything I wanted to be.

Stands to reason.

Stands to reason.

It also pisses me off that they don’t teach my alternative theory for gravity, which is that our souls are metallic and magnetic demons living just below the earth’s crust are trying to suck out our souls and this is why we don’t float into the Sun. This theory has YET TO BE DISPROVEN.

I’m going to write an angry letter to the School Board, City Council, and to my Senator.


The first solar-powered vertebrate

The first solar-powered vertebrate

When you think about it, animals are weird. They ignore the abundant source of energy above their heads – the sun – and choose instead to invest vast amounts of energy in cumbersome equipment for eating and digesting food. Why don’t they do what plants do, and get their energy straight from sunlight?

The short answer is that many do. Corals are animals but have algae living in them that use sunlight to make sugar. Many other animals, from sponges to sea slugs, pull the same trick. One species of hornet can convert sunlight into electricity. There are also suggestions that aphids can harness sunlight, although most biologists are unconvinced.

But all these creatures are only distantly related to us. No backboned animal has been found that can harness the sun – until now. It has long been suspected, and now there is hard evidence: the spotted salamander is solar-powered. article/ dn23090-zoologger-the-first-solarpowered-vertebrate.html



(I wish people were solar-powered. Although food is enjoyable, too… Maybe just as a backup source.)

See, George W. Bush — This is why I support human-animal hybrids! (Well we are animals anyway, so it’s sort of a misnomer.) And/or human/plant hybrids. Let’s do this!
