At a glance, yes. It's just that Tuesdays are always bad days for an occupation...

Which is stronger, the heart or the intestine, and why?

Believe it or not, this question had me wondering about an answer for hours. Games like paper, rock, scissors, heart, intestine got into it, but eventually I arrived at this:

The intestine is the stronger.

Why? Doesn't love conquer all, and isn't the heart the centre of love? Yes and no. I firmly believe that the power of love is strong if you listen to it, but I also believe it's located in the brain. A broken heart may sound more poetic than hormonally imbalanced neurons, and hearts in love beat faster. Still, I believe the brain is responsible for the flutter -- just as it's responsible for the much less poetic flutter your gut is capable of in the throes of new love ;-)

But why is the intestine stronger, then? Redundancy. "Take another little piece of my heart" may be a good line in a soul song, but it's generally bad advice for a surgeon. Bits cut off of the ol' intestine, though? Much less complicated.

Thanks for a great question!
