The human body is an engineering masterpiece! Ever wondered how the respiratory system, digestive sytem, reproductive system, and all 'other systems' fit into this body and it all functions well without collusion- regardless of height or weight? Hold that thought, call your room-mates and friends, entertain yourselves with this awesome facts about your body. When you're both done reading this, you should appreciate your body a little more.

1. If your eye was a digital camera, it would have 576 megapixels. The acclaimed Nokia Lumia 1020 is only 41 megapixels…nature beats artificial.

2. The acid in your stomach is strong enough to dissolve razor blades: Think of how tough the lining of your stomach must be, then! Note: We do not encourage anyone reading this to try swallowing razor blades, and in fact would request that you avoid doing so.

3. Humans are the only mammals that cannot swallow and breathe at the same time: You just tried to do it, didn't you?

4. Humans have approximately 70,000 thoughts each day! Aren’t we thinking too much?

5. It is impossible to hum while your nose is plugged close!

6. Your brain can hold 5 times as much information as the Encyclopaedia Britannica: The current estimate for memory capacity comes out to somewhere between 5 and 1000 terabytes of storage, which is absolutely incredible. Next time you complain that you don't have any more space in your brain while studying, remember this fact!

7. Despite the common myth, the weight and size of a brain has nothing to do with intellectual ability. Albert Einstein’s brain actually weighed less than the average weight of a human brain!

8. When your eyes receive images, they are actually upside-down. Your brain automatically corrects them, so that you see them the right side-up!

9. Your blood takes a very long trip through your body. If you stretched out all of a human’s blood vessels, they would be about 60,000 miles long. That’s enough to go around the world twice!

10. Reading aloud and talking often to your small child or baby promotes faster brain development.

11. Have you heard about ‘Glabella’? It is the space between your eyebrows!

12. The left side of your brain actually controls the right side of your body, and the right side of your brain controls the left side of your body.

13. Feet have more than 500,000 sweat glands and can produce about half a litre of sweat per day. Just remember to scrub your feet extra well next time you bathe.

14. The male brain is on average up to 10% larger than a female's brain, it has also been proven that female's brains have more nerve cells and connectors, therefore working more efficiently than men's.

15. A sneeze can exceed the speed of 100 miles per hour. When a sneeze leaves your body, it is at such a high speed that you should avoid supressing it.

16. People with darker skin will not wrinkle as fast as people with lighter skin

17. Your sense of smell has a deeper emotional connection with your brain!

18. Your tongue has 3,000 taste buds.

19. Your thigh bone is stronger than concrete.

20. Your fingernails grow almost four times as fast as your toenails.

21. You blink your eyes over 10,000,000 a year.

22. You can see your nose all the time but somehow your brain always ignores it!

23. A human heart pumps enough blood to fill 100 swimming pools in an average lifetime. In the same time, it will beat almost three billion times.

24. Every pound of fat you gain causes your body to make 7 new miles of blood vessels

25. It takes more muscles to frown than it does to smile. This is our favourite. Now, smile…it won’t hurt.
