    I've always been amazed by the human body - the way it is made and how the organs work together.

    It would seem that the stomach doesn't "talk" to the brain sometimes. I don't remember what book I read this in but I was in a waiting room and just reading through some magazines.

    When a person is eating, it takes the brain 20 minutes to receive the signal or message from the stomach that the stomach is full. So what's happening there? Is there some kind of conspiracy against the brain? :confused:

    I can just picture it now. Pssst.......pass it on.....there's a party going on at the stomach at lunch time. Whatever you do, don't tell the brain - he'll bore everyone to death! :)

    Have you noticed how the brain can be a bit deceptive sometimes?

    Had a picnic the other day with one of my siblings. They were feeling pretty energetic and in good spirits, and asked me if I could do a "star jump" (where a person jumps into the air, feet slightly apart and claps their hands above their head.)

    My brain was in pretty good spirits too, so I said "sure....no problem.....I can do that." Well I managed to do 2 star jumps before the body "zapped" me and it said "what on earth do you think you're DOING??????" So I just said "I better sit down before I break something!"

    Now technically speaking, the question was could I do A star jump (as in one, singular?) Well, I got past that - I managed to do 2. :D

    On the other hand, the power of adrenaline has always amazed me. Last year, I jumped over my fence without any problems and chased after my cat, (Puss is VERY defensive) that was pursuing a dog that had come into my yard. I was scared stiff that this dog was going to turn on the cat. Had to run past 2 houses before I caught up.

    If I had to jump the fence now, I would struggle with it and wouldn't be able to do it in a smooth, lady-like manner.
