Look at the Big Brain on Boone

Every week there's something new about T. Boone Pickens, who's yet to get back to Unfair Park about that interview request, aw. One day he's farming wind; the next, he's gonna sell water to Dallas; the next, he's donating more of his fortune to Oklahoma State University. But this may be the best story yet, courtesy Forbes, which accompanied Pickens while he had his brain scanned by the University of Texas at Dallas Center for BrainHealth for 'bout an hour. Researchers, naturally, were "truly astonished" by what they found. --Robert Wilonsky
