Humans Already Use Way, Way More Than 10 Percent of Their Brains -It’s a complex, constantly multi-tasking network of tissue—but the myth persists.  - By now, perhaps you’ve seen the trailer for the new sci-fi thriller Lucy. It starts with a flurry of stylized special effects and Scarlett Johansson serving up a barrage of bad-guy beatings. Then comes Morgan Freeman, playing a professorial neuroscientist with the obligatory brown blazer, to deliver the film’s familiar premise to a full lecture hall: “It is estimated most human beings only use 10 percent of the brain’s capacity. Imagine if we could access 100 percent. Interesting things begin to happen.” Johansson as Lucy, who has been kidnapped and implanted with mysterious drugs, becomes a test case for those interesting things, which seem to include even more impressive beatings and apparently some kind of Matrix-esque time-warping skills. Of course, the idea that “you only use 10 percent of your brain” is, indeed, 100 hundred percent bogus. Why has this myth persisted for so long, and when is it finally going to die? (via Humans Already Use Way, Way More Than 10 Percent of Their Brains - Sam McDougle - The Atlantic)

I just cannot, cannot see this movie because of how annoyed I am at them for perpetuating this stupididy. Which is too bad, because it looks like ScarJo is badass as fuck, and I would enjoy that.

all you need to know about the star trek fandom is that one time i made a joke post about butt dialing on command consoles on starfleet spaceships cause jim kirk likes to sit on everything that isn’t a chair and it generated a massive reblog chain with folks seriously discussing the future technology of command consoles and outlining the scientific developments necessary to prevent butt dialing from happening

Welcome to the Trek fandom. We take everything seriously. Even the stupid shit. Especially the stupid shit.
