      Do you think we would live longer if our brain did shut down for several hours per day ?

      No, I think we'd live longer if men stopped killing.
    • Archie Bunker
      Why just men?
    • Linda Joy
      History. Men have always been murderers, making war. Women only recently started doing it for a living. And even those who do it for recreation are overwhelmingly men. I'm sure you can Google the statistics. If you still want to debate the moot point just ask it in another question and I'll look the stats up for you. haha

      Also Beaker/Janey Jane - if our brains shut down for even a short period we'd stop breathing and our heart would stop beating. We'd die.
  • i dont think so
  • Yes, but if it does, it will not wake up again.

      Not even if you drink strong, instant coffee and take fish oil tablets ?

      Not even then. Not even snorting ground up unicorn horn. Trust me I'm a doctor. Okay, okay, mad scientist, but I have a lab and I make all my "patients" call me doctor.

      How do you make them, Doctor ?

      Are you SaveFarris, too?
    • SaveFarris
      Am I what?
  • Yes, It will go to while we are in sleep...
  • Never. I am busy in my dreams looking for my vehicle or (last night) my bicycle, and the place where I live. I always get lost or someone takes my car or bike. Last night i ended up sitting on a stool with wheels rolling down the street looking for my bike which I left somewhere. I wish when I'm dreaming I realized I'm in a dream so I could go exploring a llittle.

      Pee Wee, is that you?
  • Yes and always at the worst possible moment.
  • No, the brain remains active during sleep. It then gets recharged while it still controls many body functions, including breathing during sleep.
  • For normal people, no. But unfortunately for some, their brains have never been turned on in the first place.
  • Yeah it is always awake and going strong...sometimes so strong I cannot go to sleep.
  • No. Even when in sleep my brain is still cleaning the house, doing the laundry, preparing foods for breakfast lunch and dinner, doing the kids' projects, encoding datas for my boss. Literally, my brain is hardworking.
  • ...no... I remember you from the old AB...you had a lot of points...
