seven ways to sunday

This is my brain laid bare. It is used not only for quoting Descartes, but also figuring out the tip on a $167 bar tab.

It has been variously reported that humans use only 10% of their brains. Depending on who you listen to, that 10% statement started life as a misquote of Albert Einstein OR as a misinterpretation of Pierre Flourens work in the 1800s. Of course, I know this cannot be true. I know this simply because I use 100% of my brain 100% of the time. There is NEVER a point in time, conscious or unconscious, in which my brain lies unused in its brain pan.

Lately I have begun to track my massive brains average daily useage. For instance this week, here is the breakdown:

9% of the time I was thinking about the Padres
25% of the time I was thinking about the Hula Honeys
12% of the time I was thinking about How I Met Your Mother
13% of the time I was thinking about  my girlfriend
19% of the time I was thinking about How to track my brain useage
8% of the time I was thinking about the Dewey Decimal System
4% of the time I was thinking about Hex Codes for Orange
3% of the time I was thinking about Emily Deschanel
5% of the time I was thinking about my screenplay
2% of the time I was thinking about obscure Descartes quotes
1% of the time I was thinking about blogging

  1. HAHA! That’s hilarious. The Hula Honeys got a quarter of your brain! They must be good. Hey, can I get .25% next week? 🙂

  2. The Hula Honeys are a client. One of them is a friend of ours. I built their original website and currently building a content management system for them to better maintain their website. That is why they are occupying so much of my thoughts.

    13% devoted to something once in a while might not seem like much. But 13% devoted to something 24/7, 365 is a lot.

  3. Only 3% for Emily Deschanel? I have to admit that she occupies more of my brain. I have a thing for hot, nerdy girls. Which perfectly describes my fiance.

  4. There are two deschanel girls… There is Emily and her sister Zooey. Zooey is in the new movie, 500 days of summer. Emily is on the hit show Bones. While zooey is cute in an elfin way, Emily is uber, nerd hot in ways that cannot be adequately summed up here.

  5. hmm… it seems that everyone really likes this Emily person. I need to watch an episode of Bones to see what all the fuss is about.
