BODY & SOUL (WITHOUT THE "SOUL" PART)



Some interesting (to me, anyway) facts about the human body:

If saliva cannot dissolve something, you cannot taste it.
Not only is this rock tough, it needs salt.

The higher your IQ, the more you dream.
To sleep, perchance to snore...

The largest cell in the human body is the female egg & the smallest is the male sperm.
Another place even little guys fight their way in.

You use 200 muscles to take one step,
That's why I sit a lot.

A pair of human feet contains 250,000 sweat glands,
I bet my husband has more!

A full bladder is roughly the size of a softball. 
Or a large Diet Coke.

The acid in your stomach is strong enough to dissolve razor blades.
NEVER store razor blades in your stomach!

The human brain cell can hold 5 times as much information as the Encyclopedia Britannica.
But not in alphabetical order!

It takes the food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach.
No wonder I’m still hungry!

Men without hair on their chests are more likely to get cirrhosis  of the liver than men with hair.
How about hairy chested women?

At the moment of conception, you spent about half an hour as a single cell.
I remember how lonely it was.

Your body gives off enough heat in 30 minutes to bring half a gallon of water to a boil.
Maybe so, but I’m not getting in that pot!

Your thumb is about 1/3 the length of your penis.
Being a female, I can't check that one!

Women are through reading this.
Men are still looking at their thumbs.

I thought this was interesting:

True story:

I realize I may not be normal (whatever that is) but I had a dream where my toes were falling off.  No pain or bleeding, but off they came.  Can anyone explain that to me?  Did I invent a new disease--toeliosis?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Some jokes:

A man went to a surgeon and said, "I want to be, uh, castrated." "What?" said the doctor, "Surely you don't want that." "Yes," said the man, "That's what I want, to be, uh, castrated. I insist I be, uh, castrated!" The doctor told him to check into the hospital. When he did he was stripped, laid on a cart, wheeled into the operating room, anesthetized, and WHOP!, off they came. The next day, he woke up in a double room & wanting to be sociable, asked the man in the next bed what he was in for. "Oh, I was circumcised," the man said. "Son of a bitch! That's the word I was looking for!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A man moves into a nudist colony. He receives a letter from his mother asking him to send her a current photo of himself in his new location. Too embarrassed to let her know that he lives is a nudist colony, he cuts a photo in half and sends her the top half. Later he receives another letter asking him to send a picture to his grandmother, too. The man cuts another picture in half, but accidentally sends the bottom half of the photo. He is really worried when he realizes that he sent the wrong half, but them remembers how bad his grandmother's eyesight is, and hopes she won't notice. A few weeks later, he receives a letter from his grandmother. It says, "Thank you for the picture.  Do you mind if I make a suggestion? Change your hair style, it makes your nose look too short!"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 
The male sexual organ requests a promotion and a raise for the following reasons: 
- has to work at great depths; 
- has to work upside down;
- has no ventilation or air conditioning at work;
- does not get weekends and holidays off;
- does not get time off after extra hours of work; 

Request DENIED for the following reasons: 
- does not work 8 hours in a row;
- does not answer immediately to all requests;
- after a short activity period, falls asleep at work;
- shows no fidelity to the workplace; 
- does not leave the workplace clean after finishing.

And some cartoons, but just for YOU:









My mind is now so crowded with valuable information that I can't think----fishducky

  3. I don't think the thumb/penis thing can be true. If it were, X's thumb would just be a tiny stump, or perhaps he wouldn't have thumbs.

    Love,

    1. I was just reminded of a Dick Van Dyke show about 4 eyed aliens, walnuts & losing your thumbs. It's in 3 parts on Youtube--this is part 1:

  6. That castrated joke is funny in a weird way. Reminds me.... a girlfriend was telling me about a man with prostate cancer. The friend is not from US and she often searches for the correct English word. She kept skirting around the subject and finally just blurted out... "They castrated him." She finally found the word.

  7. The higher the IQ the more you dream, since leaving work I now dream all the time does that mean work was lowing my IQ maybe I can sue them.
    Poor guy who got his words muddled up.
    I have never had a dream about toes falling off but something else fell off in a dream the other night but I cant't remember what.

  9. One more fact: The reason men have nipples is because until the chromosomes prevail into an XY formation, all babies are XX, or female. Once the body determines an XY configuration, the hormones stop the body from developing them into breasts.

    Until later on, of course, when McDonald's and Wendy's help in the man "boobie" growing process. :)

    On Friday I start my 60 miles walk... clearly I am screwed. Better bring extra deodorant.
