I came across the funniest article on how woodpeckers avoid brain injuries. Apparently, woodpeckers don't get headaches for two main reasons: No 1: their brains are cushioned in a spongy matter that absorbs the shockwaves they endure. No 2: they approach wooden surfaces under a very particular angle that seems to be the best possible angle for pecking wood. Unfortunately, the article does not detail which angle that would be.
I thought this was a great piece of wisdom to share on a Monday morning. To do your best work, create a soft, cushy environment, invest a little bit in figuring out the most direct way to accomplish the task at hand and peck away.
I then discovered that Woodpeckers Don't Get Headaches is also a critically acclaimed 1975 film by uber-cool Soviet director Director Dinara Asanova and proceeded to spend several hours scouring the interwebs for whatever little tidbit I could find about it.
So there went *MY* morning.
