big brains
It’s no secret guys tend to worry about size. But here’s a guy who probably ought to worry a little more about the size of his big juicy brain than where he does his thinking.

I was walking around town the other day and I saw a person go buy who had the most massive cranium. It was just huge! And I thought to myself, “That guy would be like the X-mas goose during a zombie outbreak.” And by the look on this zombie’s face I think he agrees with me!

That got me thinking a bit about brain size and how it helps or hinders us. Looking into it just a bit I was reminded that based on the Neanderthal  skulls which have been found to date, they tended to have significantly larger brains than Homo Sapiens. They were also more muscular though so the larger brain capacity might actually have some correlation with that but we can’t be certain just yet.

Nevertheless, smarts and brain size don’t always seem to go hand in in hand. I know plenty of big people who are dumb as hammers despite having massive craniums.
