No, really, what is an adult to the medically endowed?

It's a slow day.

I started going through my Yahoo mailbox. I have found snippets and photos people have sent me, and some notes are too good not to share. About a year ago, I asked, "What is an adult," and apeyanne quoted thusly:

From a strictly neuropsychological perspective, the frontal lobes (which govern social judgment, which is really what makes us act responsibly or "mature") are not finished maturing until you hit your mid-twenties. So, from that perspective, you're not capable of making mature decisions until about 25. Unless, of course, you have very low IQ (85 or below), or a mental illness.

So... take THAT, ya'll!
