The brain is remarkably energy-efficient, running on about 12 watts—the electricity it takes to light some high-efficiency light bulbs. It would require so much energy to run a computer as powerful as the human brain—perhaps as much as “a gigawatt of power, the amount currently consumed by all of Washington, D.C.” —that it may be impractical.

I've found it impractical to run my brain at all.
