The human brain is a vastly interesting place, and what I found especially interesting as I was researching the frontal lobe was all the different functions of all the different sections of our brain. The thing I found most interesting, however, was the correlation of amusement and self-awareness - they are both managed by the Superior Frontal Gyrus, a section of the frontal lobe in the cerebrum. The cerebrum is, by extension, what makes humans intelligent and mentally self-aware. How basic is our ability to recognize something as amusing to us - to laugh at it - but how extremely recent it is, in evolutionary terms.

What is Sussle?

Sussle is the first, open visual encyclopedia. Anyone can use it.

What's a visual encylopedia?

It has beautiful images and viral videos that are way more fun than reading all the text in traditional encyclopedias.

5 reasons you should add your own images and videos:

  1. If you found Sussle interesting, then give back by adding something interesting for others.
  2. Help others learn in a fun way.
  3. Make someone else interested in this topic laugh or say wow!
  4. Become internet-famous as people like and share your post.
  5. It's super easy, so it won't take more than a minute.
