Recently a friend who is also married to an identical twin commented on how he suspected that his wife and sister-in-law shared a brain, and a broken one at that. I was quick to agree as my own experiences had led me to suspect the same, however I decided to research the matter further to determine if we were chavaunists or scientists.
Come to find out that we are scientists because on average women’s brains weigh 110 grams less than the average male brain (WikiAnswers).
Everyone has heard that people use only 10% of their brain, and the average female brain weighs 1250 grams versus 1360 grams for men. Meaning that women only use approximately 125 grams of their brain, so men have literally 110 grams of brains more than women and thus almost twice their brain-power. That’s almost four ounces of grey matter.
This explains a great many things not the least of which is the lack of women’s suffrage for the majority of human history and the popularity of Sex in the City, but I digress.
Back to the half-brain theory; Even in light of my ground-breaking research and simplistic interpretation I am still not sure it is even a whole brain between the two I am most familiar with…
DSBM (depressive suicidal black metal) from Sarasota, Florida. Interesting and local, with a funny name considering, I like it because it explores the two-man territory of the DSBM sound, which is different anyway. Two thirds of the reviews for this album on Metallum are luke-warm and overly critical, so don’t expect it to be profound and ground breaking.
