The size of my brain
It's official: I must have a big brain. It would explain quite a few things about my strange behaviour and preferences, if we are to believe this new research results that have been published.
There was an article in The Independent last Saturday about it, written by Howard Jacobson.
"We in the north have bigger brains, they say, only because, like primitive cameras, we need larger apertures through which to process our native darkness into light [...] If light does play a part in the difference then the way to understand it is that people with large brains seek out places where there's less light, or stay in places where there's less light, because they know that light distracts from the gritty business of living sceptically, mistrustfully, and intelligently."
I quite like this definition, really, as it would then explain why I've never liked southern Europe and exotic destinations, can't stand the beach and the forced sunny happiness of the Summer season, adore scandinavia, winter, dark venues and museums... As for living sceptically and mistrustfully... :-)
