[lol not really]
Fact 7 is wrong. The human brain actually stores roughly 2.5 petabytes of information.
To put this into perspective, 1 petabyte of 4-minute MP3 files at 1 megabyte per second would take over 2,000 years to play.

mfw I have a dent on top of my skull that was caused due lack of vitamin D in my early childhood. I got lucky though, this thing can cause asperger.

Sleep paralysis ******* SUCKS
#10 to #4 - nerdiestjockever (12/04/2013) [-]
I think I'll have to agree with you on that one, it happened to me once and it was like having a bad trip, and some of the most horrific hallucinations I've ever experienced.
User avatar #18 to #10 - stonerjesus (12/04/2013) [-]
Right on. The only thing that really bothers me about it is the fact I can't move
#7 to #4 - John Cena (12/03/2013) [-]
Sleep paralasys is ******* awesome dude, you just gotta know how to deal with it. Google up OBE ( Out of body experience ) And lucid dreaming, you can thank me later
User avatar #11 to #7 - whiteblob (12/04/2013) [-]
Sometimes it just comes too sudden and you just panic, once you start to panic, it's too late to go back, when you have time to notice it's a dream it's really, really ******* epic.
User avatar #17 to #11 - stonerjesus (12/04/2013) [-]
Exactly, that's why I don't like it 'cause I usually wake up face down in my pillows so I freak out for a minute before I snap out of it. Lucid dreaming is absolutely awesome, it just sucks when I wake up in the middle of it lol
User avatar #9 to #7 - Silver Quantum (12/04/2013) [-]
lucid dreaming if ******* awesome

Our brains aren't nearly as divided as most people suggest. Most of the data they get it from is from studies that were performed on people who had the connecting tissue between the halves of their brain destroyed in some way. Most people think with pretty much the whole thing.

I kinda gotta call ******** on the memory, I got no scientific proof but 4 terabyte sounds like way WAY to little as a memory bank for a human brain.
User avatar #23 - theghostace (12/04/2013) [-]
ummm, was I the only one who thought of something more gruesome when seeing "Exploding Head Syndrome", before reading the explanation?

phantom extra limb isnt the thought of having an extra limb. its phantom limb, and its where amputees still feel like they are using their lost limbs even though nothing is there
User avatar #20 to #16 - angreif (12/04/2013) [-]
no. that's phantom limb syndrome. not the "extra"
#15 - Charjaco (12/04/2013) [-]
actually, the 100billion neurons thing was recently discounted. it is estimated that males actually have closer to 23 billion and females have around 21 billion. supposedly this leads to better visiospatial ability for males.... don't blame me for nerding out..... its ******* finals week...
#19 to #15 - John Cena (12/04/2013) [-]
Word. That one also bothered me with this little inaccuracy: "These cells are known as gray matter..." FALSE. Neurons constitute gray and white matter, it is the presence of a myelin sheath that differentiates the two.
User avatar #12 - traveltech (12/04/2013) [-]
I knew a number of those already, and some were entirely false.
User avatar #13 to #12 - coookiecrisp (12/04/2013) [-]
Such as...?
User avatar #25 to #12 - stifflimb (12/04/2013) [-]
The memory of 4 terabyte is wrong right?
User avatar #27 to #25 - traveltech (12/04/2013) [-]
Yeah, that fact doesn't even make sense actually, since the brain stores memory in a way not easily converted to bits.
User avatar #28 to #27 - stifflimb (12/04/2013) [-]
Yeah not easily converted but possible, I believe someone wrote the brain memory was estimated to around 2.5 petabytes, still that might not be true since we don't have exact proof, only theory's and estimates.

The left and right sides of the brain being so cleanly divided is also a myth.
User avatar #5 - girloninternet (12/03/2013) [-]
is it bad if you dont hear...but feel a slight pop in your head
User avatar #21 to #5 - angreif (12/04/2013) [-]
that's a stroke. can you feel the left side of your body?
User avatar #29 to #21 - girloninternet (12/04/2013) [-]
yeah i can feel just fine. but sometimes i stutter really bad then i lose my thought completely

Source? You kinda need one if you're gonna state differences between the sexes.
