Smarter, but at a price: 11 consequences of using 100 percent of your brain 

1. You’ll get hauled into a silly, millennia-old war.
Of all the fallacies regularly perpetuated by pop culture, none are quite as narratively useful as the erroneous scientific “fact” that humans use only 10 (or 8 or 20 or anything less than 100) percent of their brains. Often, this old chestnut is employed as a casual blow-off explanation for superpowers and special abilities, a cheery hand-wave to the audience that denotes, “We don’t want to talk about this, we want to get to the action.” That’s certainly the case with this week’s Lucy, which casts Scarlett Johansson as a woman who unlocks the full potential of her mind. It also applies to the thoroughly silly 2010 Nicolas Cage film The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, which dumps Jay Baruchel into an ancient war between “Merlinian” wizards and “Morganian” wizards, each descended from their namesakes of Arthurian legend. Sorcerers don’t get a choice about having their powers—they’re just born with, as Cage says, “the capability to use the entire power of their brains” instead of the usual 10 percent. And yet Cage also claims magic is science. He says a lot of bullshit throughout the film, really, but the upshot is that nerdy Baruchel gets to save the world and get the girl, all because his brain is 10 percent normal, 90 percent full of Merlinian Chosen One status.

    FRAMED*2.0

    A digital art display platform from Japan with motion detection, available in two sizes - kickstarter video embedded below:

    FRAMED is an Internet connected display that allows you to showcase artwork in a way that has never been done before. 

    Designed to be the world’s first canvas for the art of our generation, allowing you to experience and enjoy beautiful art within a normal, everyday setting. Perfect for creators and fans of visual culture alike, hang it on your wall, choose an artwork, and transform your space into a living, virtual gallery of creative expressions. 

    The evolution of technology and accessibility of the internet has brought out an expansive range and depth in digital art, and now, FRAMED can bring digital art into your everyday.

    Over the course of a year, we’ve built two sizes (24-inch / 40-inch) with immense care and attention to craftsmanship. Every unit contains a gorgeous full-HD display, graphics processing, integrated inputs, and motion sensors within a mere 18mm (0.7 inches) in depth. We’ve created a minimalist object as the perfect backdrop for showcasing artwork, while maintaining powerful features to allow each frame to be totally unique, and exactly what you, the creator, makes of it.

  • Anonymous asked : You're worse than the white people! Jesus was of middle eastern decent. It says he had copper skin, not black, and the region clearly points to his middle eastern decent. Stop with your black supremacy bullshit!

    darvinasafo:

    Na. Just cuz Arabic folks are densely populated throughout the Middle East in modern times does not mean that’s how it was when Jesus allegedly lived.

    North America is a majority white region, however 2000 years ago it was filled with indigenous people and African settlers.

    Soooo there’s that.

    For the record stating historical content that goes against the story you were told doesn’t make me a Black Supremacist. It makes me a researcher providing content to uplift my people with their glorious contributions to the world.
