DailyDirt: Stop Filling Your Brain With Nonsense

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

You are what you eat, and your brain reflects what you've taught it. It shouldn't be too surprising that our brains change based on what we do with them. There's some interesting science behind why you never forget how to ride a bike, and here are a few more examples of lessons our brains seem to keep forever. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post.

    Of course a martial artist (who knows what they're doing) can generate more force than linear math says. We use our entire body to launch a solid punch, not just our arm. The linear math doesn't add up very well because it generally ignores a great host of factors, mainly all our cheap tricks to extract that extra little bit of oomph from a strike.
