    The brain that Broca used to determine the brain's speech center, Broca's area, belongs to Louis Victor Leborgne born in Moret, France in 1809. His identity had been unknown for 150 years.

    Leborgne suffered from a lifetime of epilepsy which damaged the speech center of his brain rendering him only capable of saying one word, "tan." He came from an educated family and his father was a teacher.

    He met Broca shortly before he died.

    That's high. I was on TV. The Ask Asa show on fox in NY. During 911 my Sprint phone bill had charges of over 5,000 that I didn't make from all of these different countries and of course they wanted me to pay so I submitted an email to them and got the charges removed.

    Miles has been in TV too. The Spanish Channel Univision. They were mocking Latin celebrities with doggie lookalikes. It was very funny lol.

    I had my 5 seconds of fame back around 1976. And it was literally 5 seconds. A classmate recognized me in a TV segment on a book related to Richard Nixon. I was caught on tape idly flipping through the pages of the book, and I was not aware I was being taped. I never saw the segment.
