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

    One  human hair can support 3 kg (6.6 lb).

    The  average man's penis is three times the length of his thumb.

    Human thighbones are stronger than concrete.

    A  woman's heart beats faster than a man's.

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

    Women blink twice as often as men.

    The  average person's skin weighs twice as much as the brain.

    Your body uses 300  muscles to balance itself when you are standing still.

    If  saliva cannot dissolve something, you cannot taste it.

    Women reading this will have finished by now.

    Men are still busy checking their thumbs.

      Didn't know about some of those. And some of those I did. The thumbs comment at the end was hilarious.

      3 of my thumbs would make me a porn star. I will have to discount that one.
