trivia 10/14
DID YOU KNOW...
The brain has as many as 100 billion neurons, and they - along with their
thousands of connections to other neurons - are very good at generating
electrical impulses, and it doesn't much matter what time of day it is or
what the person is doing, this electrical activity - powered by food, mostly
sugar - in the blood, amounts to about 20 watts of power, or about the
equivalent of the little light bulb in one's refrigerator.
