Yup.  My brain is humongous. 

   I had a brain MRI a few months ago at the hospital.  (Everything was fine).  It was pretty boring.  I had to lay in a big doughnut-shaped machine for about forty-five minutes or an hour without moving at all.  I thought it wasn’t humanly possible to not move for so long, but it turned out I was able to lay still the entire time.  So, it can be done.  It is possible.

   ANYWAY, I had a chest x-ray last week (everything was also fine), and after it, I went and picked up copies of them, along with copies of my brain x-rays.  Also, I requested a CD to be mailed to me with all the x-rays on it, and it arrived a couple of days ago.  It’s amazing.  Here’s one of my favorites:


   There was some text  covering up the outer border of the image, so i removed it… so that’s why it looks weird in some places (especially the top of my skull near the date).  

   Why is this x-ray one of my favorites?  Because it shows nearly everything, except my nose.  I finally have proof that I have eyes, teeth, and a brain.  Also, I didn’t realize how big my eyeballs are.  They are massive.  Nor did I realize how much of the space of my skull that my brain actually took.

   So, the morals of this story?

  • Lying still in any machine for 45 minutes is totally worth it if it results in an x-ray of your brain.
  • My brain and eyeballs are awesomely huge.
