Good mate Sandra Cox...

Weird Body Stuff...

Writers and readers deal with the human body all the time, especially inventive erotica writers. So readers and writers, did you know?

Scientists say the more you dream the higher your IQ. (Sigh. I dream so little.)

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 five inches shorter than the average man. (Hmm. I'm out of that category too.)

Your big toes have two bones each while the rest have three. A pair of feet contain 250,000 sweat glands.

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

The human brain cell can hold five times as much information as an encyclopedia. (If mine does, its like a hard drive, when it gets too full it deletes itself.)

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

The average human dreams last two to three seconds. (I don't buy this one. It takes longer than that to wake me up from a bad one.)

Men without hair on their chest are more likely to get cirrhosis of the liver than men with hair. (Huh?)

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. (Lots of information on feet here.)

Your body gives off enough heat in thirty minutes to bring half a gallon of water to a boil. (I think males have a better shot at the temperature thing.)

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

Your teeth start growing six months before you are born.

Your thumb is the same length as your nose.

All the best,
