Considering that people can pull transports truck, I am sure that if you took every mucle, which includes the heart, brain, etc.
It could pull 2/5 buses

The brain is classified as a muscle because it is a mass of tissue which becomes stronger the more you use it.

This must be the dumbest thing i have ever heard ^^
the brain consists of nerve cells... muscles are made of muscle cells - at the point of full growth the brain doesn't grow futher since nerve cells can't "reproduce" like muscle cells can... I can't even explain it properly because the idea is so ****** up - i'm sorry ^^

yea well ... got here through some comment's thought it was from today...but still... you see, that they say >...brain "muscle"...<, right? as in "good" idea...? yes, you can exercise your brain to make it more useful, but it's still not a muscle since it's composed of a completly differend typ of cell.

Basically yes, it is a mass of tissue in which the more you use it, the stronger it gets.

Yeah, but that's pulling something that's rolling on wheels.

Lifting 50,000 straight off the ground is far different. I've looked into it and I guess i'm wrong, but it still seems improbable to me...

50,000lbs/600 different muscles = ~83lb of force per muscle. Sure, a leg or a pec can do that easily, but how about the muscles that blink your eyelids? or move your eyebrows? Toes? Those are all ludicrously weak.

The math just doesn't add up, but then again what do I know on this subject.

I can't remember his name, but that guy had very, very specific ideas of what animal bites and stings felt like. For example, he said that one insect sting was "Like W.C. Fields extinguishing his cigar on your tongue."

Specifically W.C. Fields.

I'm pretty sure that the people who hugged me for more than twenty seconds saw the first one and thought it would work. I've had a lot of people do that to me and at first I thought they were just being weird because I hang out with some pretty &quot;unique&quot; individuals but I guess they were just trying to get me to trust them. It didn't work and yet they still try to do it with me and many others...

There's a Italian man who wen't without sleep for over 3 months. Nobody could figure out why he couldn't sleep but they suspect the problem was in the center of his brain. He was also part of a wealthy Italian family so they didn't publicly release his name.

There isn't much more to know on the subject. There is a definite difference between knowing the effects of NOT doing something and knowing the reason TO do something. Also, "the body starts releasing poisons into your body" isn't a very scientific way of putting that, I'd like to know where you got that information.

well not exatly but your body starts poisoning itself after a while. what do you expect man im not a scientist, and not sleeping will kill you, it baliscly starts to melt your brain ive stayed awake for three days and the first one was okay i just played assassins creed for 24 hours, but then by the end of the second day my vision got blury and got major head aches and buy the third day i couldnt even put a sentence together. so ya thats not the only reason you need sleep

Those aren't really reasons you need sleep, though, they are reasons you shouldn't stay awake. What sleep actually does other than "prevent bad ****" is unknown.

but again, it doesn't shine any light on why we sleep or how sleep functions. Not eating will kill you, but we know exactly why that is, and also exactly what function eating serves.

For the Holocaust survivors, it wasn't as much as the fact that they ate candy. It is the fact that they ate a ton of food when their stomach was shrunken by the malnutrition in the camps. They literally ate until their stomachs exploded.

Seems a lot of people are confused over the "scientists don't know why we need sleep" one. I might be wrong on this, as it's been a while since I researched it myself (and I'm too lazy to do all that over again) but scientists really don't know why we need sleep. We know what the effects of not getting sleep are, but we don't know why they happen. That's all it's saying.

It's like if you didn't know what our bodies used water for: You still know that you need to drink water to survive, but you're not sure why that is.

Yes we do, your brain performs upkeep when you sleep. When you don't sleep, your mental acuity erodes because your brain keeps working at full capacity without a chance to perform maintenance.

Okay, but what about the numerous experiments done that show that people can function on far less sleep than what is considered normal? I think that perhaps the statement shouldn't be "scientists don't know why we need sleep" but rather "scientists don't know why we need so much sleep".

I mean, there's even a way to 'hack' your brain into functioning on 2 hours of sleep per 24 hours. Why do people feel tired if they don't get 6-8 hours of sleep every night if it's not necessary to sleep that long?

That's because it's the type of sleep that's important, not the amount. And it's not that we need that excess sleep, it's that the more sleep you have, the more you have under that needed sleep. Having more sleep is like having more money. Y u don't need it, but it's beneficial to have it.

And the thing about asking why is too many people use it to never answer questions.
"We need sleep to live."
"Why do we need sleep to live?"
"Because your brain erodes without it."
"But why does your brain need x amount of sleep?"

At some point it becomes retarded.

I disagree. Even if the question revolves around some tiny nuance I think it's still important to ask. Asking questions is the first step to acquiring new knowledge.

I said at some point. We need so much because it allows us more REM cycles. Then someone asks why more REM cycles are better, which is essentially asking why 3 is greater than 2.

The skin can feel stuff, which sends impulses to the brains, which subconsciously sends impulses to glands which then secrete Oxytocin.

To be honest, the amount of Oxytocin produced by the person is probably minimal. It is mostly used during child birth and breast feeding. Some studies also suggest during sex. The purpose of Oxytocin is to give positive feedback to the person producing it; it makes the individual feel affection for the person (probably a baby) in question, leading to less abandoned young during caveman days.

My guess would be that the senses tell the brain that the hugging is an act of affection, the same way you feel good when you see someone smiling.

"to withhold a kidney from someone who would otherwise die means valuing one's own life at 4000 times that of a stranger"

What ******** logic!
Thats like saying "your body- your choice but hey, if you dont give your kidney to this guy right now then you are a massive selfish asshole and I hope you have many sleepless nights thinking about it"

Maybe they arent selfish, maybe theyre just scared of going under the knife, I would be.
Just because someone is in need doesnt mean theyre automatically entitled to a handout because donating a kidney means having to go through the pain of surgery plus possible future complications. If they want to go through with it, then more power to them but otherwise if someone tries to guilt trip someone else into giving up a part of their body, then they are the most person selfish of all.
