  1. That was *WEIRD*…. I don’t habla Espanol, but the sub-titles speak for themselves. Sorta….
    The toothless guy is a *lab*manager*? WTF? Anyway, at 1 Billion Euros, to study 100 Billion neurons, that’s 1/100 Euro per neuron. That’s a *BARGAIN*!

  2. By now there have been so many resubtitled video jokes, that there are even resubtitled video jokes that are about resubtitled video jokes.

    The one in the post is a bit long, but the point that simulating the whole human brain is a joke is, of course, completely spot on. The last I checked, we can’t even simulate C. Elegans. Ah, but it seems we’re getting closer.
