Brain Strain Reading Test
So what is today's picture ?
First of all it is not a psychadelic jellyfish, and it isn't a group of swarming sentinels from "The Matrix" movie either.
It's actually some computer mapping imagery of the human brain.
The reason I chose this picture, was to get you in the mood for this interesting "Brain Test" that a student administered to me recently.
The test is to see how well you can read and decipher the following
passage of text: (Read on......)
fi yuo cna raed tihs, yuo hvae a sgtrane mnid lkie mnie.
Cna yuo raed tihs? Olny 55 plepoe out of 100 can.

So if you are not one of the 55% of people who could easily understand the above "mumbo-jumbo", then maybe consider some lifestyle changes, to preserve and conserve a few more of these:
Yes we need a lots of these brain cells functioning in a healthy manner on a daily basis. (Again a marvelous computer image of our human biology).
So get those synapses a snapping, brain cells a buzzing, chess moves mastered, and Sudoku skills sharpened, because we all need to build up some extra brain power.
