996 – “A typical neuron makes about ten thousand connections to neighboring neurons. Given that billions of neurons, this means there are as many connections in a single cubic centimeter of brain tissue as there are stars in the Milky Way Galaxy.”

991 – Hashem Al-Ghaili on Doing the Same Thing Twice

“No matter how hard you try, you can never do or say the same thing at the same place twice. You are on a planet orbiting it’s star with a speed of 30 km/s. This star travels around the Milky Way Galaxy with a speed of 220 km/s. This galaxy is traveling across the expanding universe with a speed of 600 km/s. By the time you finish reading this paragraph. you would have already moved over 3000 km into a new location in the universe. You can’t go back to the previous location, it’s just gone. I think it would be a waste of space to do a bad deed and leave a black spot in the universe, a spot that can never be filled again with a good deed. Now that you know you can’t do it twice, just think twice.”

-Hashem Al-Ghaili
