Got up this morning feeling well enough to go to work.
As I get closer and closer to the time I have to leave home, panic is creeping in. Almost certain all the sickness was pure stress now. This job is doing a real number on my system.
Of course, work right now is absolutely essential for correcting my debt so I’ve just got to stick it out, but damn this is so hard. I want to pack it in so badly but I just can’t.
On a related note, if anyone’s looking for (non-retail) security guards in the Norwich area, let me know. I’m actually good at the work, I just hate being on my feet in a crowd for my entire shift.
hoothootmotherf-ckers asked: So the movie Lucy appears to be completely based on the idea that humans only use ten percent of our brains. However, isn't that completely inaccurate?
It is indeed. It’s super interesting that it’s such a sticky myth…apparently we feel underutilized.
As the marvellous woman in the video states, it’s quite a reasonable estimate of the amount of our brain we “use” for any particular task. Of course, the rest of our brain is still active- just not being fully utilised at the time.
It’s a myth that needs correcting, but with the above in mind it’s easy to see how it’s remained so prevalent.
On an slightly related note, Lucy looks awesome regardless of the pseudo-science it’s basing itself on. Suspension of disbelief is an important part of enjoying fiction.
