Biology, it's EVERYWHERE!

Everyone knows him, he's the single greatest athlete inolympic history, he's Michael Phelps, olympic swimmer.michael_phelps_edit.jpg
There has been debate that MIcheal Phelps' body isspecialized for swimming, but the true amazment is the fact
that he can eat over 12,000 calories a day just to maintain his weight! That's more then triple the calories that an average human intakes! Here's a link to what exactly he eats
to be able to swim so fast!,2933,403803,00.html
Here is a video taken from Good Morning America on his Diet:

Now that you've seen what he has eaten (which is a TON), do you know what you're intaking?
We always see those Nutrition Facts on the back of cereal boxes, granola bars, beverages...
Ok, so they're EVERYWHERE, but one place where we don't always see them are on fruits,
so here's a little site that will help you see exactly what you are intaking in nature's fruit.

The Power Of The Subconsious Mind!
Our brain is capable of NUMEROUS things, from storring information, and genetic codes, but did you know that our brains currently know more then we give them credit for? For example, what were you wearing on your second birthday? You probably couldn't tell me, or you may not remember, but actually, that information is found in your brain, deep into your subconcious mind. Our subconcious mind stores 95% of all information given to us! So if you really think about it, you see what humans are capable of with only 5%,, could you ever imagine what the world would be like! So many things have yet to be discovered, and I wonder maybe if this has something to do with unlocking the subconcious mind! Let's take a journey into the literally, Unknown!

Today in Class we were discussing cuttlefish, and I, being a bit of a fishy person, was just fascinated! They are really cool, how they can change color and even texture for protection is just nifty! Here's an interesting video about a Cuttlefish actually attacking a Scuba Diver in Australia!
