the hard working liver

Postby hypothalamus » Sat May 14, 2011 9:46 pm

i have mutch respect for the liver a vital organ yet could it control the brain it sends all vital resourses to the brain so i think it is over looked as the key component if you ran a factory the most ie the brains nuerons would be the workers and the few ie the liver would manage the most our outward communication is done by the brain yet internaly i think the liver is a major player can anyone truely know what the electric signals are saying to each other and who is realy the boss :?:

I'm pretty sure the brain is the boss and the liver are just factory to break down all the stuff you ate

Cis or trans? That's what matters.

When the body was first made, all the parts wanted to be the boss. The brain said, "since I control everything and do all the thinking, I should be the boss." The feet said, "since I carry man where he wants to go and get him in position to do what the brain wants, then I should be the boss." The hands said, "since I must do all the work and earn all the money to keep the rest of you going, I should be the boss." And so it went with the eyes, the heart, the lungs, and all the other parts of the body, each giving the reason why they should be the boss. Finally, the asshole spoke up and said it was going to be the boss. All the other parts laughed and laughed at the idea of the asshole being the boss. The asshole got so angry that he blocked himself off and refused to function. Soon the brain was feverish and could barely think, the feet felt like lead weights and was almost too weak to drag the body anywhere, the eyes grew bleary, and the hands hung useless at the sides. All pleaded with the brain to let the asshole be declared the boss. And so it happened; all the other parts did all the work and the asshole just bossed and passed out a lot of crap.

That is brilliant. Truly the greatest thing I have ever read.

i agree. Liver is one of the most outstanding organs I had ever known. Its resourcefulness and its ability to maintain long amounting pain and tolerance to acidity and toxicity I clearly salute. However, let us not abuse our liver because its essential to the rest of our digestive organs....
