Which brains are working and how can I take advantage of that?

My brain stopped working around 6:30, nonetheless I stayed in the office because everyone else did the same.

What the....??

How they SEEM to work?

Y'know, guys, out here in Lackademia we have this picture in our collective minds about how you scientifical peeps do your researchy stuff in exchange for government cheese. And it usually includes a blackboard, a breakthrough, some frantic scribbling and a big ol' A HAH! I mean, c'mon, don't any of you actually WATCH the Big Bang Theory?

Now you come bopping by here, touting a book about how brains SEEM to work. Hey, here's an idea. Call me up when you're pretty sure you know how they work. Seems like the probability for a sequel is pretty much baked in the cake here...
