Don't forget Brain Awareness Week

It would be ironic if I forgot, but in this case I just didn't find out until it was over. As soon as I saw the banner promoting the event I got a smirk on my face. Clearly, I am likely to suffer in some indescribable way on some distant ring of hell (or with my nose in the complete works of Stephen Harper - Unabridged) for seeing humour in what is an important and valuable event. If you're truly interested, here's more about Brain Awareness Week whose goal is to: advance public awareness about the progress and benefits of brain research. If you're like me though, you'll also find humour in the fact that McGill actually reminded people: "Don't forget Brain Awareness Week".

I'm glad you get a kick out of this as well. I always took pleasure on noting what absurd kind of awareness weeks Queen's celebrated (always prominently displayed over the University and Union Intersection). Neurological Science Awareness Week was my favourite. Never could figure out what they did to celebrate that! I guess they just practice being deep.
