If you thought the post on twins sharing consciousness was awesome, wait until you hear this.

A 44-year-old French man one day went to the trip to the doctor’s because he felt a pain in his left leg. He’s a married man with two kids and a steady job.

Doctor’s found that he had hydrocephalus as a child (when your brain is filled with fluids) so they decided to run some brain scans.

What they found was that the majority of his head was filled with fluid. Over time, the buildup caused his lateral ventricles to swell so much that his brain had been flattened to a thin sheet.

Doctors estimated that his brain mass had been reduced by at most 70%, affecting the areas in charge of motion, language, emotion, and, well, everything.

Shockingly, he was fine. While his IQ was only 75, he wasn’t mentally challenged. He held a steady job, raised a family, and didn’t have trouble interacting with others.

Over time, his brain had adapted to all that pressure, and even though he had fewer neurons that most, Jacques was still a fully functional human being.

The doctors drained the fluid and while his brain is much smaller now, he is still a healthy individual with a normal life.

THIS IS SUPER COOL THOUGH IF YOU UNDERSTAND HORSES. LIKE THAT NIPPING IS A GROOMING BEHAVIOR HORSE’S DO TO BOND AND TO MAINTAIN AND IMPROVE SOCIAL BONDS. SO THAT HORSE IS BASICALLY TREATING THE CAT AS PART OF THE HERD AND SUSTAINING THE FRIENDLY BOND.

IT IS SAYING, “this tiny horse is very tiny but we are friends. Look at my tiny friend.”

Just A Reminder Of How Small We Are

This is the distribution of mass in the different planets, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Earth making up just 1%.

And this is a distribution of all the mass in the solar system, including the sun - all the planets make up that tiny 0.14% left over after the sun…

Skolithos - Western AustraliaThe vertical structures which you can see weathering out of the sandstone are fossilised burrows, perhaps made by an ancient worm. Skolithos, as these burrows are called, are relatively common trace fossils, and generally indicate that the environment was high energy. The presence of sandstone, rather than mudstone, would support this interpretation.SedgImage credit (non-commercial): Eric Baker (https://flic.kr/p/dfpnRt)
