Losing one's head

Mike the Headless Chicken

I thought this was a pretty well-known story already, but apparently not. We were just talking over dinner and somehow this story popped up. Looks like I got some facts wrong, but the story’s true – Wikipedia confirms it, and we all know Wikipedia never lies! =P

The short story is, a chicken’s head got cut off, but most of its brain stem remained, and so it was able to live for 18 more months before finally kicking the bucket. An amazing story, really. Shows you just how important one’s head really is…
