//Strange Brains and Genius: The Secret Lives of Eccentric Scientists and Madmen//, by Clifford A. Pickover. Yes, another Pickover book I haven’t picked over but instead read cover to cover. After reading all about hypergraphia (a word not in Firefox’s spell checker), I’ve decided to manifest some excessive writing of my own. See [[Browser Compatibilities]] below. Rest assured that I won’t be practicing self-trepanation (drilling a hole in my skull), self-defenestration (all right, that wasn’t something from the book, but it’s funny to imagine the literal meaning, unlike that of the prior term), I’m not excessively shy, I don’t have OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) or TLE (Temporal Lobe Epilepsy, which the author speculates convincingly is responsible for many alien-abduction and supernatural religious experiences), or even good old manic depression. Depressingly, or perhaps not, I’m absolutely normal (besides the hypergraphia, which isn’t a compulsion in my case, I don’t think, but rather just because I can type fast). //Strange Brains// provides a lot of food for thought, and expect some more of those thoughts here (and more hypergraphia) in the near future.
A note on [[Browser Compatibilities]]: a summary of the whole thing is that I bragged I could program Gmail in about a week. That’s about it.
