Crikey, a brain!

PC_Has_A_Brain_Shock_0001 PC_Has_A_Brain_Shock_0002I've heard suggestions that I haven't got a brain, and if I did I've never used it.  I know, I've heard you.  But me baby, I've got statistics, I've got facts.  I've got pictures.

Herewith the shocking evidence: actual picture proof that I both have a brain and, from those few splodges of colour there, that I sometimes even use it.  Frightening, isn't it.

(The pics, by the way, come from a scan done as part of a stroke study, for which the researchers needed some normal brains.  I did warn them about the inherent risk in using mine, but you just can't tell some people anything.  I've learned that.)


  1. Even given humankind's wondrous technological advancement in this brave new century, scientists still cannot agree which hemisphere is dominant in human thought patterns.

    However, as clearly demonstrated by these scans, libertarian theory is produced using neither the 'left' nor the 'right' hemisphere, as true libertarians eschew such simplistic modes of thought. In fact, the whole left-right hemisphere spectrum can be seen in these very images to bear no relevance at all to libertarian thought function...



  2. Very good Denmt. Bought I wry smile from me. :-)

    Den, are you saying that biological scientists don't have a consensus yet on which is the correct brain hemisphere that human though patterns is?

    Would you take side, say, if the UN establish a panel of expert biologists to form a consensus of which hemisphere of the brain for thought patterns? I am sure that you would go with the majority.

  4. Is that before or after the lobotomy?

    And did they give you a cup of tea and a chocolate wheaten before they strapped on the jacket? (wink)

  5. Why must we labour under the delusion that libertarians use their brains to think. Perhaps a scan of PC's colon may have been more revealing.

    In NZ, nobody can go near a vegeterian's colon without a class 4 biohazard suit.

    NZ has no such facility.
