he’s just like so fucking happy. Like no cares in the world, he’s just so happy being a duck that runs like a fucking dinosaur
I want to sit with someone at 3 am and talk. Like really talk. I want you to tell me what keeps you up at night, that dream you keep having, what certain songs make you feel like, what you think happens after death. Talk to me about your family and your dreams.
This video is a bit graphic, but it’s also pretty amazing.
Most of us “think that the brain is sort of the consistency of a rubber ball,” says neurobiologist Suzanne Stensaas of the University of Utah. That’s the consistency the organ becomes when researchers preserve it in chemicals, such as formaldehyde.
But when alive and firing, the brain is actually really soft and compressible, like a sack of goo. “It’s much softer than most of the meat you see in a market,” Stensaas says.
In this video, Stensaas explores the anatomy of a 1,400 gram brain freshly removed from an autopsy, before it’s put in any chemicals.
The video gave me a whole new understanding and appreciation for how remarkable — and vulnerable — this amazing organ is.
Wear your helmets!
