Every time I start thinking about brains in any way, shape, or form my mind turns to the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz. I picture him running around singing "If I only had a brain". Some of the fun facts out there about your brain are" ********** Every time you recall a memory or have a new thought, you create a connection in the brain. **********Cholesterol is key to learning and memory. However, high cholesterol has different effects depending on your age and other factors. ********** The brain can't feel pain. It interrupts pains signals sent to it, but it can't feel pain. ********** The human brain gets smaller as we get older. Usually just after middle age. Here's a thought. maybe that is what is wrong with me lately my brain is shrinking and my thoughts can't get through. I will leave you with a quote that makes me laugh every time: "My brain is experiencing technical difficulty...please stand by" It sounds like me these days.

@HazySue That caught my attention too. No wonder I forget things. My brain doesn't have enough room to store things like that. lol I had to toss little humor in. It is something that I plan to do more reading on.

@velvet53 It is either that or your better at filtering out the unimportant things. I like to think I am filtering out anything that is unimportant to me.

I love that quote, It's me. I think stimulating the brain with puzzles, crossword and otherwise and brain teasers is a fun way to go.

I love the quote. It seems I have that technical difficulty many times throughout the day. Good information about the brain I didn't know. There are a lot of people who act like the scarecrow. Without a brain.

I am sure my brain has been shrinking for a very long time. A shrinking brain sure does make life more difficult.

It's too bad that some of us can trade a shrinking brain for a shrinking waistline.

I don't know. If your head shrank also they might start calling you pin head.
