More Fun From Tracy Farr

Just had to share this latest bit of nonsense from my friend, Tracy…..

The Human Brain Can’t Handle Extreme Multi-Tasking

Researchers have recently discovered that the brain can only keep track of two tasks at a time, which is totally absurd because at this exact moment, not only am I thinking about what I’m about to type, and then typing it, but I’m also wondering where I put my tall glass of sweet iced tea, because I know I just had it and…

No…wait…I was just THINKING about making a tall glass of sweet iced tea, with lemon, if we have any, but I’m not sure. I’ll check the fridge……

See, that’s three things, isn’t it? Now, where was I?

Oh yes. These brain researchers say our medial frontal cortex (whatever that is) divides so that each side can focus on a single task at the same time. Which again is totally ridiculous because I would think if our brains are up in our heads dividing all by themselves, we’d be able to feel something, or at least hear it. Not only that, but if they can divide once, shouldn’t they be able to subdivide, and keep subdividing until we have our own little brainiac subdivisions, complete with condos, a golf course and free broadband internet?
