And this is why you’re neat.

The animal kingdom is mind-blowing but hey, us humans have some pretty cool things about us as well!
Here’s why.


1. Our gastric acid is strong enough to dissolve razorblades and other types of metal


2. You don’t need all that squishy stuff!

No spleen, stomach, only 25% of your liver, 20% of your intestines, one kidney, one lung and an almost empty pelvic and groin?
You’re cool! We can survive like that!

3. Our brain works harder when we’re sleeping than when we’re awake.

Scientists say people who dream a lot are more intelligent!

4. Sneezing happens at 100 mph

And you can’t sneeze while keeping your eyes open!

5. People are… enjoying each other’s private company 120 million times a day.

Us and dolphins are the only animals that do it for fun.

6. Every human spent about half an hour as a single cell.

And when we’re born, we’re stronger than an ox if you compare sizes.

7. We literally can’t hear anything when we’re sleeping


8. Your nose can remember 50.000 scents


9. Everyone has a unique smell – except for identical twins.


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


11. The colder the room you sleep in, the better the chance at a bad dream!


12. Even our clones have unique fingerprints, the same genes still produce different prints. No two people have the same!


13. We kiss to bond but also to assess potential mates!

Breath and saliva carry information as to whether someone is healthy or not, or even ovulating!
Besides that the area around your mouth carries a lot of pheromones which give away your biological makeup.
Through kissing we subconsciously either get more or less attracted to a person!

14. You are looking at blood vessels, right now, but you can’t see them. Unless…

Your eyes have grown accustomed to ingnoring the veins in your eyeballs, but you can see them with this trick (skip to the end):


15. Armpit and pubic hair evolved to help trap pheromones and attract potential partners!

  1. Wauw het meeste wist ik niet eens haha! Coole feitjes :D

  2. #3 – awesome. I dream a ton. :) #10 – not cool. Are you saying it can see and feel pain? Gross!

  3. wat leuk en interessant om te lezen

  4. Wow gurl, ik nies volgens mij wel het dubbele! Serieus, soms nies ik zo hard dat het in mijn lies schiet. :”) Hardlopen en niezen.. ain’t working. Leuk om te lezen joh, ik ben echt dol op dit soort feitjes. :D

    • Auchh! >_< En jij ziet er dus ook niet heeelemaal in je element uit als je loopt haha! Ik krijg zo'n witte snor. As if imma die. Nee geen gezonde after workout – glow here. Dankje voor langs te springen!! ^_^

  5. Haha awesome :D I remember from biology lessens the trick of the blind spot, but it still amazes me how the cross just disappears!
    It also intrigues me that we can’t hear anything when we’re asleep :D it’s sort of true, because I don’t hear the tv when I fall asleep, but the voices wake me up after a while as well (usually those annoying telsell voices :p )
    This is some really cool stuff :)

    • Yeah but watch till the end of the video! Then it gets explained how you can see the veins in your eye! Have you seen that yet? It’s thrilling aaaaaa :D
      And voices on tv are annoying right. It’s like *dozing off* “huh? whhu-uhhhhh” *dozing off again* et cetera. >_< All those teenie slaps in the face.
      Man I hate that.

      • Didn’t see that yesterday but HOLY MOLY that f-ing scared me!! It really freaked me out! EWW! Do you have that too? the moment you saw it screaming like EIH and moving your finger away as quickly as possible? :p

  6. Cool stuff! And if you could actually hear all the noises your insides make, you’d probably go nuts from all the constant noise.
    (And I hate that sneezing thing…try to keep eyes open during sneeze with just applied not yet dried mascara!)

  7. Dat je ogen er dan uit ploffen als je met open ogen niest?!! echt weird facts jah ;)

  8. I wonder what tests scientists or the medical industry used to compile information about #10? And, WHO would ever be able to negate those results? LOL Interesting post… made me think a bit this morning!

    • No clue! But apparently the idea is that there would be enough blood in your brain to keep it going for a while. >_< And that's always great to hear hehe :D

  9. Gross – 15 to 20 seconds.

Speak your mind!
