Human brain can do wonders

I happened to come across this Kid speaking 10 languages.

Which pops up following questions to me:

What is the amount of data that can be stored in a human brain?

Is information realy stored in brain (neurons) or somewhere else?

If brain capacity is limited, is there any compression logic being used by the brain to store so much of information?

Well, I think it would be a long time before Science can answer such questions.

Eating glass, stone. Drinking Acids, pesticides

I was surprised to read in a newspaper that some one named Ashok eats stone, glass etc everyday and can even drink acids and pesticides which can easily kill a normal human being. He has claimed that he eats normal meal only once a day and for the other meal he prefers these items!

Ashok ate a think glass bottle infront of the news reporter to prove it.

He is even ready to co-operate with doctors to find out how he is able to digest these things.

After much searching on the net to see if I can get more info or links found this one.

Seeds/Plants which can withstand flood water

I read in newspaper today that there are rice seeds which jerminate in flood water and the plant comes out to live in that water. The plant can survive in that water for 25 days. If the water still persists the plant starts decaying in parts and finally the inner core would remain. When the water recedes later on the plant grows back to life ! I find it amazing !

There are efforts being made to protect these seed varities in Northern Karntaka. These seeds can get exitinct if they are not preserved due to invasion of seeds from the multi-national companies.
