"you are born with over 16trillion brain cells."
Another answer that appears to be wildly off the mark. Amazing what a huge variation I'm finding on this one.
The consensus seems to be around the 100 billion mark:

16 trillion brain cells
Its different for different people - If you drink aclohol a lot you have less brain cells than the person who is healthy well...on average our brain contains hundred billion brain cells~!! =)
This is because the brain cells get sent to another part of the mind, and retrieving it will take a long time to do so.
There is no exact amount of brain cells used throughout a lifetime. However, scientists have discovered that as humans we only use 10 percent of our brain on a daily basis.
There are around 200,000,000 brain cells in your brain.
the average dog has at least one billion if humans have 3 trillion
100 billion brain cells (neurons)
There are over 100 billion brain cells.
there are 20,000,000 cells in a human brain..
About one hundred billion (100,000,000,000)
Since humans are such complex beings, we are composed of many different types of cells, each type specialized to perform a different function. We have brain cells, nerve cells, kidney cells, liver and pancreatic cells, muscle and bone cells, skin cells, and so much more.
8 brain cells
dogs have one billion brain cells
There are upward of 100 billion nerve cells in the human brain. 200,000,000,000 brain Cells.
there are so many blood cells in the brain you can not count them they are so tiny
There are around 200,000,000 brain cells in the brain.
It doesn't kill brain cells.
the brain consist of about 2 billion cells or more.
I've heard that there are approximately 100,000 cells a fly's brain.
Brain cells are classified as neurons or glial cells. There are 86 billion neurons and 10 to 50 times as many glial cells.
100 billion cells
We have 70
It's an old myth that alcohol kills brain cells.
No amount of alcohol kills brain cells.
