The Human Body: A machine that is full of wonder.

Today I was going through my email inbox, something I’ve been putting off because I just HAVE to save emails that contain one shred of interest or importance and the process of sifting through them all just seems like another chore.  This is something that drives Lance crazy, probably why he got his own email forever ago.  But I did it, call it fall cleaning- cyber style. 

Anyways, so I was reading through all these old emails from ages and a decade ago and came across this:

      This collection of human body facts will leave you
      wondering why in the heck we were designed the way we
      were.

      Scientists say the higher your I.Q., the more you dream.

      The largest cell in the human body is the female egg and
      the smallest is the male sperm.

      You use 200 muscles to take one step.

      The average woman is 5 inches shorter than the average man.

      Your big toes have two bones each while the rest have three.

      A pair of human feet contains 250,000 sweat glands.

      A full bladder is roughly the size of a soft ball.

      The acid in your stomach is strong enough to dissolve
      razor blades.

      The human brain cell can hold 5 times as much information
      as the Encyclopedia Britannica.

      It takes the food seven seconds to get from your mouth to
      your stomach.

      The average human dream lasts 23 seconds.

      Men without hair on their chests are more likely to get
      cirrhosis of the liver than men with hair.

      At the moment of conception, you spent about half an
      hour as a single cell.

      There are about one trillion bacteria on each of your feet.

      Your body gives off enough heat in 30 minutes to bring half
      a gallon of water to a boil.

      The enamel in your teeth is the hardest substance
      in your body.

      Your teeth start growing 6 months before you are born.

      When you are looking at someone you love, your pupils
      dilate, and they do the same when you are looking at
      someone you hate.

      Your thumb is the same length of your nose.

 

Isn’t the human body fascinating?!

    LOL, “The largest cell in the human body is the female egg and
    the smallest is the male sperm.” What does THAT tell you about the
    difference between men & women?
    “You use 200 muscles to take one step” How many calories do we burn pushing the elevator button?
    “Your big toes have two bones each while the rest have three” Not on MY feet they don’t!
    “A pair of human feet contains 250,000 sweat glands”. This explains why they smell so bad!
    “A full bladder is roughly the size of a soft ball.” Try telling that to Kam!
    “The acid in your stomach is strong enough to dissolve
    razor blades” Clearly, this one’s important if you’ve ever eaten my cooking.
    “The human brain cell can hold 5 times as much information
    as the Encyclopedia Britannica” Wow! so I’m like a walking library? Who checked my books out and didn’t return them?
    “Men without hair on their chests are more likely to get
    cirrhosis of the liver than men with hair.” What about WOMEN with hair on their chests?
    “Your body gives off enough heat in 30 minutes to bring half
    a gallon of water to a boil.” Unless you are me, then it’s about 5.8 minutes.
    Another unknown fact, it will take your kids less time to figure out you have candy hidden then it took you to find a good hiding place for it.

    We did confirm fact:Your nose is as long as your thumb. Also, good to know FAct:Men without hair on their chests are more likely to get cirrhosis of the liver than men with hair on their chests. Jesse is a furry rug of a man, both sides even. I’m not sure how that happens. It’s like he was put on a rotisserie of testosterone. Think Lauren from FBTC, but not as bad. Don’t get me wrong, I love his fuzzyness.
