Just a pretty...





I spent some time playing with my laser pointer again tonight, with disappointing results, so here's a small hothouse flower instead.

In other news, a question. Does anybody else get really really hungry while doing fairly intensive brain-work ( for me writing or debugging code or similar tasks)? Come 4pm, and I'm having to raid the break-room for taxpayer-funded Milo to avoid getting lightheaded and grumpy, despite having had a decent lunch.

In a word, yes.

hardly surprising though, the human brain uses roughly 25% of body's energy production.. but it can double it's demand if very active.

25%! I knew it was a lot, but that's huge.

well think about it.. weight for weight, it's one of the largest human organs..and it's all solid glucose using neural tissue. Unlike muscles which can run on a number of different fuel sources, so it most directly utilises the body's resources.

Hmm, Ok, I'll think about it, but I might need a snack first.
