In the news today...

Scientists have discovered that the part of the brain that inhibits risky behavior does not fully develop until the age of 25.

In an unrelated study, scientists discovered that the organ of the body which causes risky behavior develops around the age of 12.

I can't decide whats funnier, the fact that you're probably not 25 yet then-making obscene phone calls ;) or that you actually had aromatherapy farts. Its not too often I go beyond a smile reading bloggers posts since I'm at work, but that got a chuckle!

interesting. Does the study go one to explain that this is true in males, but not exactly true in females? I believe that in women risky behaivior and brain development to inhibit risky behaivior happens right around the same time. Unless the risky behaivior is a hot, sexy musician.

Did it say when the part of the brain that inhibits excessive drinking and runnin' 'round hotel lobbies pantsless fully develop?

Yeah, but some guys never fully develop even after 25. That's what bands are for.

Ah, Bless them.
