"If English is a foreign language to you, you're pretty good with it."

I have dyslexia. And English is not my first language.
If you argue the point, then you can prove me to be wrong but if your only argument is how bad I wright then you prove yourself an ass.



And you have just proved that you don`t read posts before replying to them.

It`s impossible to prove you wrong *because you didn`t make any point at all*. I answered the question that I thought you probably meant to ask.

The poor quality of your post is very relevant because it completely obscures what you meant.

Also, your number is wrong. The average difference is a *lot* more than 1 billion cells. The average difference is ~10% and there are far more than 10 billion cells in a human brain. The lowest estimate is around 170 billion (weirdly, it`s far from clear how many cells are in human brains - estimates vary from ~170 billion to several trillion!

>>confusing a tendency with an absolute difference

want do you mean?



When comparing two groups, differences can either be absolute (e.g. adult elephants are bigger than adult sheep) or a tendency to varying extents (e.g. there's some degree of tendency for Norwegians to be slightly taller than Britons).

The two are very different things indeed. Men having more brain cells than women is a tendency, not the absolute difference you stated.

@Angilion: The answers to Both your questions are in @dm2754's profile...
Had to double check that for proper grammar...

@dn2754: What that means is: it may be a true difference in numbers (tendency) but it likely is NOT an important difference in performance (outcome).

You seem to know this already, given your reply...

The reason men have about 1 billion more brain cells then woman is because men are more likely to get brian damage. Men also have grater lung capacity muscle mass. And I was just trying to make a Borat joke

I have dyslexia. And English is not my first language.
