Each brain display will cost $3,200 to produce, and each sponsor’s name will be included on a plaque on the base of the displays — which would be in public view for several months next year.
“Imagine brains all over town, connecting our community through appreciation of this beautiful organ,” she said.
Hey, if you’re considering funding this, why not take that money and buy 3 “thousand dollar cars.” Seems the same kind of value. Or better yet, fund a relief program for flood victims, or purchase food for Hoosier Hills Food Bank.
Or maybe we could have temporary installations telling us about the famine in Somalia and the other countries in the Horn of Africa. Each station could detail a facet of how that famine came about. There would be one dedicated to the US puppet government in Somalia and the drone strikes being inflicted on the country now. One could be dedicated to climate change as this is the worst drought in 100 years or more, another could be dedicated to agribusiness politics and lobbying by Cargill. Lastly, one might be dedicated to the effects of malnutrition on BRAIN development.
In other words, maybe folks with cash to burn might help the rest of us understand our world as we act within it, rather than marvel at the organ that our rulers have confused and manipulated for centuries.
I’ll turn my stupid brain into a gateway
Meet me in the place where life comes to get away
Back inside my body I pick up the pieces,
Count up my friends and welcome another day
Damn that stupid brain
