    Default Limitless

    Kinda surprised I am the first to post on this recent gem.

    Saw this on a matinee last week and enjoyed it a bit more than I expected. Bradley Cooper (Hangover apparently, which I have not seen) plays a struggling writer who gets a pill from his ex-brother-in-law that opens up the 'other 80%' of the brain we don't normally get to use.

    Some interesting morality and thoughts on success in general but far more fun and less preachy than I suspected it might be.

    Anyone else see and enjoy 'Limitless'?
    A recession is when your neighbor loses his job. A depression is when you lose yours. And recovery is when Barack Obama, Harry Reid and (Nancy Pelosi - fired 11/10) lose theirs.

    Yeah bro, I did like it. It could of been a lot better though.
    The plot was ultra cool and I did get in a good mindset.

    Great movie this was. It reminds me of the days when I was a relentless daytrader. If only I had those mental abilities Bradley Cooper did in the film I'b be a billionaire by now. But it does explore how the human being has this vast potential for increased mental power that's actually very possible if science can unlock it.

    Scientist say average humans naturally use only 10 percent of their brains, while geniuses (actual medically classified ones like Einstein) naturally use 15 to 20 percent. What blows my mind is why nature gave us this huge potential for brain power but put a limit on accessing it. What a joke on us. I want my 100% noggin :-(

    Daytrader, huh? So much talent.

    I recently came across that 10 percent stat -- and it kind of freaks me. I don't have a clue how I could use more of my brainpower/potential than I am already.

    LOL, nobody's perfect, that's what make us so interesting as individuals. That's what they call a fat finger in daytrading :-)

    Yeah, I learned from an early age growing up in the islands, you have to diversify, no pun intended. There's this big stereotype about Jamaican people that they all hold 10 jobs,. who am I to prove them wrong :-)

    The quote is not what we make it out to be. What the quote refers to is that while doing a specific task we are only using 10% of one's brain. Not that we don't tap into the other 90%.
    The greatest barrier to discovery is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.
