    I knew everything except the part about each square inch of human skin consisting of twenty feet of blood vessels. I guess that`s why when you get cut you bleed no matter where you got cut.

    Unless you`re a girl we once knew named Dimity, or Dim as we called her. She was so dumb we used to call her "5 Whats".

    um... how funny the first one is wrong.
    The NOSE doesn`t remember anything, the BRAIN remembers what senses pass through the nose. Wow, our government ran schools are seriously making people more and more dumb every day. :/

    Every single one of these falls into one of two categories:

    Common knowledge
    Boring

    And ditto to what fknloser said.

    "The energy used by the brain is enough to light a 25 watt bulb"

    sooooooo 25 watts then?

    Allow me to over complicate this for you...

    It takes far less than 25 watts to "light" a 25 watt light bulb. 25 watts is the peak usage. Think of a dimmer switch - at the dimmest setting the light bulb is still lit while consuming hardly any power.

    ... but even more strikingly they confuse power with energy. An ant can deliver 25 watts if it`s output is concentrated briefly enough.

    This poster sucks. I`d rather read the blocked ads that came with it.

    @LazyMe484
    You are absolutely correct, although one would have to make an ass out of you and me here, and thus say that the brain would be able to generate roughly 25 watts constantly. Otherwise the information is, as you point out, utterly useless.

    Well, some people`s brains anyway. The people`s brains that DON`T produce that amount of energy would be certain people in Kentucky, Virginia and most of the West Virginia population. Oh, and those people that misuse the words "their, they`re, there, your and you`re.
