I got this email from Suzy recently and I decided to share along with my own commentary.

The human body is a machine that is full of wonder. This collection of human body facts will leave you wondering why we were designed the way we were!

*Scientists say the higher your I.Q., the more you dream. I must be SMART!!!

*The largest cell in the human body is the female egg.

*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. Unless you are me and then you only have two in your little toes also...except for when you break them, then you have 3.

*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. Some idiot is going to put this to the test. I will not be that idiot...remember, I'm smart!

*The human brain cell can hold 5 times as much information as the Encyclopedia Britannica. But it's much quicker to find the information in the Encyclopedia than it is to find it in my brain...things get lost in there.

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

*The average human dream lasts 2-3 seconds. Man, I pack a lot into those 2-3 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 is about one trillion bacteria on each of your feet. Yuck...when I was in high school, I could stick my foot in my mouth...literally...and did several times.

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

*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. So if I'm staring into your eyes, don't get creeped out, I'm just trying to see if you love/hate me.

*Your thumb is the same length of your nose. I have a very long thumb.

*At this very moment I know full well you are putting this last fact to the remove your thumb from your nose and pass this on to the friends you think might be interested in comparing their thumbs to their noses as well - I did.
