    -A man weighing 200 lbs. would provide enough meat to feed 100 cannibals in one sitting.-
    I weigh 185.

    Hmm. So the mite thing is confirmed. My mom always took great joy in telling me that I was covered in tiny bugs, but I guess it`s so after all.

    The rest of this was not interesting to me.

    "4.Demodex folliculorum has eight stumpy legs and a tail, is about a third of a millimeter long, and loves nothing more than to recline in the warm, oily pits of your hair follicles. Most adults have this mite, usually on the head, but especially in eyelashes. And often, they’re in nipples."

    whoa... wtf.

    Here DBtG

    1. The average human body comprises enough fat to make seven bars of soap, enough iron to make a medium sized nail, enough potassium to explode a toy cannon, enough lime to whitewash a small chicken coop, enough sugar to fill a jam jar, and enough sulfur to rid a dog of fleas.

    2. A complete skeleton is worth between $5,000 and $7,500 to a medical student; your skull alone would fetch only about $450.

    3. Your mouth produces about one quart of saliva per day.

    4. Demodex folliculorum has eight stumpy legs and a tail, is about a third of a millimeter long, and loves nothing more than to recline in the warm, oily pits of your hair follicles. Most adults have this mite, usually on the head, but especially in eyelashes. And often, they’re in nipples.

    5. You have approximately 4,000 wax glands in each ear.

    6. The average adult stool weighs about 4 ounces. And half of the bulk of your feces comprises the dead bodies of bacteria that live inside your intestines.

    7. The average male foot exudes half a pint of sweat each day.

    8. If it weren’t for the slimy mucous that clings to and lines the walls of your gut, your stomach would readily digest itself.

    9. The average person will pass about 11,000 gallons of urine in a lifetime.

    10. A man weighing 200 lbs. would provide enough meat to feed 100 cannibals in one sitting.

    ^Maybe they figured out how much the average person pisses in a day, then multiplied that by 365, then multiplied that by the average lifespan....just a guess.

    The cannibal one seems true unless the person they are eating is Chinese. Because we all know that after you eat Chinese you`re hungry 15 minutes later.

    $450 for a human skull? That`s cheaper than a Playstation 3. *ponders which to buy*

    100 Cannibals? Yeah right! They would eat less than 1 pound of meat then. And if I`m right. Cannicals eat people because they got nothing else to eat, which means they`d be much hungrier than that.

    About the cannibal one: wouldn`t it depend on what parts of the man they ate? If they only ate the muscles, there would be a lot less than if they ate the organs too.
