Your Brain is Green
Of all the brain types, yours has the most balance. You are able to see all sides to most problems and are a good problem solver. You need time to work out your thoughts, but you don't get stuck in bad thinking patterns. You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about the future, philosophy, and relationships (both personal and intellectual).

What's in A Name

Recently there has been considerable talk about changing the name of my hometown football team, the Washington Redskins, to something more Politically Correct.  Fortunately, it now seems that about 80% of DC fans don't want to do so.  Apart from the complete inanity of it, folks in the Capital have better things to do.  The cynic in me says someone in the production of sports gear carrying the team logo is behind this, as it would require a lot of new purchases [and those hanging on to the old stuff could sell it for millions on eBay]

I never knew why the Redskins were called that, since there haven't been any Native Americans in the region for nearly 200 years.  But the logo is known, and distinctive.  I don't know if there are any buccaneers in the the Tampa Bay region, but it certainly sounds a lot better than the "Beach Boys" [which would be more accurate for San Diego too, than "Chargers", now that I think of it]

However, if the name MUST be changed as part of the current insane PC zealotry, how about calling Washington's NFL team the "Reds"?  Make the baseball team the "Blues", and our NHL team [does Washington even have a hockey team?] the "Whites" which seems appropriate for a game played on ice.  DC's NBA team, of course, would be called the "Stars and Stripes".  See?
