Facts about the Human Body
Thanks, Budge, for sending me yet another gem!
I added my own comments in italics.
You're surprised by that?
It takes your food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach.
(Why, then, does it stay on my hips for 10 years?)
One human hair can support 3kg (6.6 lb).
(That explains the whole Rapunzel story.)
The average man's penis is three times the length of his thumb.
Human thighbones are stronger than concrete.
(Considering the size of my thighs, they better be!)
A woman's heart beats faster than a man's.
(Well, of course! How fast does your heart have to beat when you're lying on the couch?)
There are about one trillion bacteria on each of your feet.
(EW! and may I add ICK!!)
Women blink twice as often as men.
(It's a natural tick that occurs from repressing the urge to kill.)
The average person's skin weighs twice as much as the brain.
(I have a lot of skin and very little brain. This doesn't surprise me one bit.)
Your body uses 300 muscles to balance itself when you are standing still.
(This body needs WAY more than 300 muscles, man!)
If saliva cannot dissolve something, you cannot taste it.
(Has someone actually licked everything in the universe to prove this theory?)
And, not surprising ...
Women reading this will be finished now.
Men are still busy checking their thumbs.
(I looked at my own thumb. If I was a guy, I'd be in movies ... in a Ron Jeremy kinda way.)
