Dear readers of TabooJive, It is my pleasure to re-introduce Get REAL! (TabooJive featured a previous project of ours on their page a few years back) We are a Canadian non-profit and our mission is to empower university and college students across the country to speak to high school and middle school students about unlearning homophobia and embracing everyone, regardless [...]

The human brain contains around 86 billion neurons, and 86 trillion connections between these neurons. That is more connections than there are stars in the Milky Way galaxy, or galaxies in the known universe. The human brain is one of the most complex and wondrous things we know of, and is the product over three and half billion years of [...]
