What does he mean, more than one brain? His sentence is hovering just outside of intelligibility for me.
one braiin is a mnere anacdote! not data!
Oh, I get it!

By the way I've been reading a lot about this Black Swan business and I think they're's something to it. I'm going to get one. You can't be too careful these days.
I googled under stabilizing selection and not one of the hits made sense. Has the mainstream joined your blog? Or what?
wel porjact if somebodys claimign they're was a entiare population of black swans youd like to see more than one example.

inskpsost! waht it means is just that circus acrabats have a lota kids cause they can balance good.
