You gotta feed your mind, or at least that’s the turn of phrase. We mean, it’s good advice in a metaphorical sense, but what does that look like in action? Do you eat things that boost your brain? If so, what foods would that be? Surely it’s not enough to take that mushroom-based brain booster supplement that you heard about on that one podcast you like. There has to be substance to it.

What is the mouth of the brain? What do we feed into it? Is the mouth of the brain the same mouth as the mouth in our head? They're close to one another and the mouth feeds the rest of the human body, so that would make sense.

What does this all mean? It means that we think the best mind food is random movie facts. These bits of info are pretty fun to snack on, whether they benefit you or not.

Con Air

Con Air Nicolas Cage did his own stunts. There were explosions five feet behind me, Cage said, flaming helicopters dropping right behind me, ball-bearing bullets over my head. So there was a level of intensity, fear, you might say. CRACKED.COM
