This is a picture of my brain (actual size)
I used it in an article about the urban myth, that we only use 10% of our brains
Scans of the brain show that, in fact, there
are no parts of the brain that are inactive or unused
and detailed probing of the brain has failed to
identify the ‘non-functioning’ 90%

Swimming Logo

My daughter's swim team is called Walthamstow Tritons
We have had a redesign, to make the kids swim faster
For those of you that think a Triton is an electric shower

Triton (mythology)

Triton (Greek: Τρίτων, gen: Τρίτωνος) is a mythological Greek god, the messenger of the sea. He is the son of Poseidon and
Amphitrite, god and goddess of the sea respectively, and is herald for his father. He is usually represented as a merman, having
the upper body of a human and the tail of a fish, "sea-hued", according to Ovid[1] "his shoulders barnacled with sea-shells".

Like his father, Poseidon, he carried a trident. However, Triton's special attribute was a twisted conch shell, on which he blew
like a trumpet to calm or raise the waves. Its sound was such a cacophony, that when loudly blown, it put the giants to flight,
who imagined it to be the roar of a dark wild beast
