Somatic nervous system includes all of the neural pathways (neurons) that result in voluntary actions, basically anything that you can tell your brain to do like move your arm or stick out yor toungue. The autonomic nervous system includes all of the neural pathways that result in involuntary actions, like your brain telling your eyes to blink or your intestines to contract, basically anything that you cannot control. Hope this herlps.

I'm really sure lot's of you are like jokes.

Why not share here your favorite jokes so others can know about it

Below is my favorite joke which is Needles Are Not Nice

Bill and Bob, two children, were sitting outside a clinic. Bill happened to be crying very loudly.
"Why are you crying?" Bob asked.
"I came here for a blood test," sobbed Bill.
"So? Are you afraid?"
"No. For the blood test, they cut my finger.
As Bob heard this, he immediately began crying profusely.
Astonished, Bill stopped his tears and asked Bob, "Why are you crying now?"
To which Bob replied, "I came for a urine test!"

Bob was very stupid, thinking his vital will be cut for a urine test
