Left Brain, Right Brain, and Bot Checks (in Off-topic)
I read a recent article about this. The left side of the brain primarily processes the 3 R's: reading, writing and 'rithmatic, dealing with alphabets, linear progressions and time. The right side of the brain processes the 3 arts: dance, music and the visual arts, and deals with broad perceptions and space.
When I first started playing CB, the bot checks were very difficult for me. But, after awhile I became good at them. The bot checks are processed by the right brain--I am primarily a left brain dominant person. But the interesting thing is that you can "train" the right side of the brain to be better at spacial and visual things.
you know how the chinese monks do it? they hit the 'brain' into the wall -->got harden up :P (or else, 9 dots)

Just attack lots of people around you, build up your EXP and then train it. HELLO!? haven't you learned anything from CB?

This sounds like the left brain is being trained by the botcheck more than the right.
So, if only one side of my brain works, I won't be able to play CB?

I think the point here is that left brain reads stuff on paper, right brain reads stuff on comp :)
So the text on comp would be something visual just like the bot checks.

To say that one side of the brain is completely responsible for a particular action would be somewhat erroneous. Both the right and left side of the brain have are capable of producing speech though it may seem that one is more active then another most of the time. Each half of your brain is completely self relent and if you were to separate the connection between the two (a procedure that has been done by the way, and yes there is only one connection to cut here) you would find that the person is still a fully functioning human being operating with what seems to be two separate minds.
In fact some people are even born with only half a brain and are in no way retarded, but in fact they can be just as intelligent as any other person. You wouldn't be able to tell these people from anyone else by using external observation. Only after you take a CAT scan would you even know.
As for the left brain always being primarily responsible for the "3 R's" and the right primarily responsible for the "3 Arts" that would not always be true either. It is only that way most of the time. Some people have their primary speech centers located in the right brain with the visual centers in the left. There also exists, if I can remember correctly, a connection to the brain that is often crossed, but isn't always for some people. So it may not always be true that the left brain is controlling the right side and visa versa, but this is where my knowledge starts to get really fuzzy.
One of the right lobes is actually completely useless so if you get a tumour hope to god that it is in the front right side and you'll have it gone before it can grow and come back :).

Nice female brain :)
Let's see what Bast has to say about it.

I believe she is at a shoe sale.
Most likely since she isn't in carnage constantly talking and correcting people, probably telling the shop assistant how to do it ;)
