The brain of a cyclist

They blinded me with science

The doctor will see you now

Had a scan yesterday. Not exactly sure what I was expecting, but this shouldn't have come as a surprise:

Did I miss something here with the 'Agony Guy's' posts? They appear to be recycled entries from his own seemingly largely unread blogs. I used to come to for good original views and writing. To be fair I still do on the the whole! But just not here. Or am I wrong??

That's what the doctor said, too. Well, waste of space. "Some people have fit E=MC squared in there," is how he put it. "You're currently wondering which brake calipers look prettiest."

PS. Poetic licence aside, that was a real brain scan. Serious stuff, in direct violation of my own user guide.

I love the comment at the bottom "Do not google and try to compare with 'normal' brains" brilliant.

That's a real thing. This was obviously a real brain scan at one time, and people who take them home always want to find and compare their heads with "normal" ones - and promptly freak out when they don't have their own "ipod jack" and it must be abnormal!

When in doubt, send em to fat camp!
