20141215161426When was the last time you really thought about your body?The human body is an incredible thing. Some of these facts may be hard to believe, but they are all very real,and just a part of what makes us a masterpiece out of all creation.

Human fingers are so sensitive, that if your fingers were the size of Earth, you could feel the difference between a house and a car.

There are 60,000 miles of blood vessels inside the average human body,enough to circumnavigate(go round) the Earth two and a half times.

The human eye is so sensitive that if the Earth were flat, you could spot a candle flickering at night from up to 30 miles away.

Nerve impulses travel to and from the brain at speeds of up to 250 miles per hour, faster than a Formula 1 race car.

The human brain can read up to 1,000 words per minute.


An adult is made up of 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (7 octillion) atoms,more than 80% are replaced each year. For perspective, there’s just about 300,000,000,000 (300 billion) stars in our galaxy.

Our muscles are actually incredibly more powerful than they appear to be. Human strength is limited to protect our tendons and muscles from harming themselves. This limitation can be removed during an adrenaline rush, during which some people have lifted boulders or even cars off themselves,or a loved one.

We humans are the best long-distance runners on the planet. Better than any four-legged animal. In fact, thousands of years ago we used to run after our prey until they died of exhaustion.

A full head of human hair is strong enough to support 12 tonnes(12 thousand pounds).

In 30 minutes, the human body gives off enough heat to boil a gallon of water.

If the human brain were a computer, it could perform 38 thousand-trillion operations per second. The world’s most powerful supercomputer, BlueGene, can manage only 0.002% of that.

And lastly… Don’t ignore this just because it looks weird. Believe it or not, you can read it- “I cdnuolt blveiee taht I cluod aulaclty uesdnatnrd waht I was rdanieg. The phaonmneal pweor of the hmuan mnid Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde Uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer in waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoatnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. The rset can be a taotl mses and you can sitll raed it wouthit a porbelm. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe”.
AMAZING,aren’t we?
