And here I thought they were trying to be alluring!

Nerve impulses to and from the brain travel as fast as 170 miles per hour.


Sometimes I think I have the "Model T" of nervous systems.

Every day the average person loses 60-100 strands of hair.


Well that explains things. I must be on the high end!

On any given day, sexual intercourse takes place 120 million times on earth.


7 billion and counting.....

Everyone has a unique smell, except for identical twins.


I KNOW...some are more "unique" than others! :?

A human head remains conscious for about 15 to 20 seconds after it is been decapitated.


How do they know that? Did they ask? :think:

The strongest muscle in the human body is the tongue.


:think: :silenced: :shifty: :whistle:

It is not possible to tickle yourself.


I don't know...I think up answers like these and get tickled all the time. Since no one else is tickling me, I must be tickling myself! :lol:

about the head: if you lose an arm or a leg - and not just financially - you may not even notice until the shock wears off. how long that takes, depends on the individual and perhaps how observant you are... :shock:

if you kept pumping oxygenated blood around one's head, i'm guessing it would function a good while.

:gah: what a horrid thought!

oh yeah, i just remembered the good dr Beaurieux: "yo! henri! pay attention!"

nervous System? i don't think mine's so much a system... :roll:

and if i were to lose that many strands of hair, you'd think i'd be finding them everywhere...?

"CLEAR!" "Wait a minute...where do I put the paddles?" :think: "Oh yeah...the heart is over there with the rest of the body." "CLEAR!"

But what was Henri's reply?

actually even identical twins have their own smell, just that it is too close for us to smell the difference.... Dogs do though.

Never found any on my grandad's hairbrush - he went almost bald!

You're right there Silke.

I hate it when I end up with hairs on my clothes. When it was down to my waist, it was really noticeable when I shed any.
