i ddni't caerte taht, cerdit wrehe it's due.

@Exhumed Legume
i can't stop laughing how you labelled a scientific fact as a "copypasta".

teacher: "we only use 10% of our brains" is actually a misquote from "how to win friends and influence people", that stated "the average person develops only 10 percent of his latent mental ability". we actually do use 100% of our brain.

legume: old copypasta is old.

it is true that certain parts of our brain aren't active at times, but we do in fact use all of our brains. think like how the lights in your house are turned on or off based on whether or not you're using a room.

the "10% of our brains" thing is just heavily ingrained into a lot of people as fact. it's been a major plot point in countless movies (it was the entire premise of the laughably bad film lucy), and even einstein quoted it once.

DURRHURR YOU POINTED OUT WHAT I SAID WASN'T ORIGINAL, I SHALL NOW MOCK YOU BASED ON FALSE ASSUMPTIONS ON YOUR CHARACTER LEL
Yeah, no. Kindly sod off with that nonsense.

I "labeled" it copypasta — old one at that — simply because I've seen that exact same piece of text, probably letter for letter aside from your addition in the end, floated around teh interwebz for more than a decade.
Actually, allow me to correct that; I think I haven't seen it in about a decade, because most people got it out of their system in the e-mail circulation of the early noughties, or in the first years of Facebook at the latest.

it is true that certain parts of our brain aren't active at times, but we do in fact use all of our brains. think like how the lights in your house are turned on or off based on whether or not you're using a room.
Additionally, there's a regulated flow to brain activity; signals travel in "waves," so muh 10% might be an accurate-ish guesstimate of the proportion of neurons firing at any given moment.
Of course, 100% of the neurons firing simultaneously out of control is what we call a seizure.


@LightningBolt
Well, you called DTK a genius for it, which, in my tired state of mind at the time, looked like credit where credit wasn't really due due to the thing seemingly credited being an oft-quoted piece of text dating back to who-knows-when, so the pedant in me — i.e., I — just had to set the record straight, as it were.

Y'all know that's not true, right?

Well, kinda half-truth.

It works when you kinda know and expect what words go next and they're short words so most of it is in place already.

But pphears lses oiouvblsy acllbppiae petcjored slltsaeaiytmcy and rrgioously onto lgoner prahess with less obvious lknniig.

But perhaps less obviously applicable projected systematically and rigorously onto longer phrases with less obvious linking.

I think the half truth behind it is that you read out loud in your head — you read phonetically and your brain matches sounds with words, so having the right sounds is the biggest thing for recognizing a word.

Reading a book is actually harder for deaf people than blind people, I've heard.

I'll put an end to this brain usage nonsense. Mythbusters did a test on this. Results showed we use around 90% of our brain mass. Results also showed different parts were more active depending on the current activity. Their results showed that the test subject used most of his brain mass creating and telling a story. That was when they got that 90% or so reading.

In addition they did notice that certain parts of the brain never saw activity. In science these are the dormant parts that many believe house latent abilities. Whether this is true or not is another discussion completely.

Point is both ideas are sort of right. We use most of our brain but nowhere near its full capability. If we were to unlock our full potential as we are now our brains would overheat and kill us. Think PC CPU over clocking without adequate cooling. A PC has safeguards to prevent thermal damage in that case but we do not.

Biology. Interesting subject, no?

Yeah, I guess, I need a liquid cooling system or sub zero cooling system installed on my brain to have 100%. XP

Also human body is quite inefficient to convert the energy to well our activity. Some say that it's about 20% of the energy itself while the other 80% converted to heat. Thought i don't know for the brain itself, but if it's true we only use about 18% of our brain "true potential", thought we need to redesign our body from ground up to be able to utilize those 80% of energy loss, like using superconductor materiel or some sort.
