^ Nah, the brain is usually between the eyes, but their circulatory system probably works in such a way that it can't bleed out from a clean wound, so it won't die because a part of its body is missing, but it will starve eventually. Insects also have a nervous system that consists of many bundles of neurons along the abdomen that are responsible for coordinating separate parts of the body.
Being generated by the brain, I guess it's pretty easy to forget that the you are not your body, your body just does what you tell it. Your body is a fascist regime in which you are the leader, but even if your brain dies, the rest of your body will still be alive as long as it doesn't run out of nutrients. Every living cell in your body is alive separately and the only reason there are so many of them is that, at some point, single-celled organisms banded together in order to more efficiently survive and breed as a group, then groups within the group became more and more specialized and over a very long time they came to be the huge nation that you look at and think "oh my gawd i'm so fat". So the body does not exist for the benefit of the brain, the brain exists for the benefit of the body and in very complex organisms, the communication that the brain provides is pretty much vital, but for primitive ones, nah.
@Bloo: Oh man, can't wait until you get to the newest stuff. EDIT: Actually I added one that I'd forgotten about, right at the end.
@Krio: also this is the off-topic thread, not the leaving/returning thread where you would most likely get the "OH, KRIO, MY FRIEND, I'VE ONLY EVER HAD HALF A CONVERSATION WITH YOU, BUT I MISSED YOU SO MUCH, I CAN'T BELIEVE IT'S BEEN SO LONG, IT'S LIKE YOU WERE NEVER GONE BECAUSE WE NEVER TALKED EVEN WHEN YOU WERE HERE ANYWAY, WELCOME BACK MY GOOD FRIEND!" that you are looking for.
Speaking of which, I just noticed that DD hasn't posted here since like 5 pages ago. What's up with that?
EDIT: New Hyuna song. She is one of the Kpop people I despise the most for her stupid voice and complete lack of skill in anything other than getting more fake boobs every so often, but I really like this song. The second one I like from her.
