    Math neurons' identified in the brain
    When performing calculations, some neurons are active when adding,
    others when subtracting.

    Told ye so!

    Sub-circuit.

    Silly idea. The brain does math by talking to itself. It's a hugely inefficient calculator,. The individual neurons might be able to do binary arithmetic, but the user interface isn't one that lets an individual neuron tackle the job on it own. An
    individual neuron might always be active when somebody was carrying out an addition, and a different one when somebody was carrying out a subtraction, but that doesn't mean that they were doing the arithmetic operation, and the paper is careful not to
    say that.

    Bozo Bill Sloman is an attention-craving chronic liar who cannot be
    reasoned with...

    "the concepts "male" and "female" are essentially social constructions"
    (Bill Sloman)

    "the Mueller investigation was about Trump only because Trump made it so"
    (Bozo paraphrased)

    <snipped the rest of his automated boiler plate response.

    Who would bother trying to reason with John Doe? He obviously much too stupid to have clue about what might constitute reasoning, and he seems to think that anybody who disagrees with his idiot misconceptions is lying. In reality he is much to stupid to
    distinguish between truth and lies, and believes a whole of political lies that are designed to appeal to idiots like him. He's in the same class of nonsense addicts as Cursitor Doom, but he is a lot stupider than most of them.

    I really shouldn't need to say this, but offensive twerps like John Doe need to be reminded that their self-image isn't one that most people would recognise.
