Study shows the brain adds nascent cells during sleep.  We used to think you had all the brain cells you'll ever have by the time you're about three years old.  YAY for science for incorporating new evidence into the story of the brain.   That's how science is supposed to work.  Actually, that's how everything should be!

My religion was fishing and they NEVER let me leave or skip school for my religious practices!!! I think if they do this they are saying they are BIGOTS to all others. The Xmas/thanksgiving excuses is BS as these are mostly secular.
