This blog is about gardening and nature, two subjects that are inherently intertwined. I live outside of Boston (on the edge of an urban area) and near the ocean (on the edge of the land) and my property abuts a city owned natural area (on the edge of nature) what better name?

"Humans only use 10% of their Brains"
If Humans only used part of their brains than problems that physically damage the brain, like strokes and Alzheimer's, wouldn't be such a big deal.
Why would our brains be so large if we only needed something 10% of the size? The brain uses 20 - 25% of the body's energy (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7282965). Wouldn't evolution have chosen to use that energy to make us stronger or faster to get away from predators? Or to fly? I'd like to be able to fly. [Then I wouldn't have to deal with the TSA]
