  • My “suavity” lump is too small.

The human brain totally rules! (Except mine, on most days—starting to feel a little doughy up there…) A 13-year-old Croatian girl recently woke up from a 24-hour coma speaking fluent German. Apparently she’d started studying the language of Boris Becker, and had been watching a lot of German TV (which is mainly just pseudo-intellectual panel shows), but according to her parents she’d barely been able to speak much German at all.

And so I salute you mysterious human brain! Now I’m going to induce a whiskey-coma, that I might wake up being able to speak Portuguese, which I think would be cool. Bom dia!
