The world's largest collection of preserved human brains is maintained in a WW II era bomb shelter beneath the Runwell Psychiatric Hospital in Essex, England. 8,000 brains collected over the past 40 years are available for researchers to study. The collection has already provided valuable information on boxing-associated brain damage, schizophrenia and Alzheimer's disease.

Just in case you are serious, 'Rold, and aren't familiar with Warren Zevon, you may wish to do an internet search. Semi obscure 70s vintage rock and roller (but still active) with actually one hit, "Werewolves of London"...but many other notable tunes for those who wish to delve. Seems to me like a lot of the stuff I've heard of his leans toward dark or darkly humorous.

Tedster, I WAS totally serious - never heard of him to my knowledge..then again I'm no poster-boy for good memory either.. :D I have heard Werewolves of London, and possibly more of his material, but you know how good radio hosts are at mentioning songs' authors :rolleyes: hmm..another piece of useless trivia: if you get dismembered, your brain stays active for another 8-10 seconds... :eek:

Utterly useless trivia... In the Atari 2600 game, adventure (the one with the dragons that look more like rabid ducks) if you take all the magic items, along with a single pixel dot hidden in the black castle, to the room to the right of the Gold Castle's exit, you can move through the wall and read the programmers personal signature! That's been useless for over 15 years! Fun for you and your hole..... ...family! :D Top that! ;) (The sad part is, I'm sure someone [i]will[/i]!)

It's easiest to find me on Facebook. Neil Bergman

Maybe he did other stuff but this is the one I know about. You can hold a clinic with his bottleneck guitar tone. It growled like a werewolf! :D

A couple good ones I remember off that record was 'Roland the headless Thompson gunner' & the title song, 'Excitable Boy'. These were the ones played on the radio back in '77. (along w/warewolves..) It was kinda like punk/bizarre music, along the lines of The Talking Heads.
