    Pretty cool, though the thing about the chimps...maybe ours is just a lighter tone? Not sure how that works out.

    Lighter tone? hahhaha. I think it would be more a thickness issue, like we`re covered in peach fuzz, and they`re covered in crazy thick hair/fur. Lighter tone pffthaha, good one.

    I already knew the fingernail thing. How? Seven months ago I hit my hand against the banister and got this white spot at the base of my fingernail. I checked it every few days and watched it move closer and closer to the tip and then just dissapear. It was pretty damn interesting, to me.

    I knew most of these, but I think the blood squirting 30 feet is a myth. It may be able to squirt a foot or two, but 30 feet would require pressure that even an artery would burst from.

    "Isn`t it also true that you get an entire new body after 7 years?"

    No, Brain cells, Nerve cells, and other tissues in our bodies do not regenerate.

    This is why stem cell research is very important, It has the potential to make the paralyzed walk again, The blind see again, etc...

    The fingernail thing depends on the nail. My pinky-nail only took about 3 months to grow back after I lost it.

    "No, Brain cells, Nerve cells, and other tissues in our bodies do not regenerate.

    This is why stem cell research is very important, It has the potential to make the paralyzed walk again, The blind see again, etc..."

    First of all, it`s pretty much your neurons that don`t regenerate (though there are some neural stem-cells located in your brain that divide and create new neurons). But most of the tissues in your body do regenerate. The cells in your digestive tract are constantly being sloughed off and replaced. Your skin as well, though more slowly. Cells are constantly dividing throughout most of your body.

    While many of your neurons don`t undergo mitosis, they can repair their membranes and organelles, so the actual atoms they are made up of may not be the same atoms they were made of when you were born.

    the cells in your body are replaced all the time, by ten years you would have replaced your dead cells with new ones. so yeah, new body.

    I feel cheated. I only read 9 things I didn`t already know. But then again, some of those things don`t seem quite right. Like the finger nail growth one. I know that my nails grow faster than that.

    "the cells in your body are replaced all the time, by ten years you would have replaced your dead cells with new ones. so yeah, new body."
    Again, except for most of your neurons. They are way too intricately connected to be replaced- especially those in the cerebral cortex. Most of the neurons you have when you die are the same cells you had the day you`re born, though new research is finding that new neurons are created from stem-cells in the brain, though they aren`t being used to simply replace dead cells like in the lining of your small intestine. But, like I said before, the "irreplaceable" neurons are most likely made up of almost entirely new atoms- particularly in their membranes, as your cells are constantly making repairs to their external and internal structures as they undergo wear and tear. The DNA in your neuron cell bodies may be composed of the same atoms as when you were born, I`m not sure.

    -
    I bet that number isn`t the exact same for everyone. You just happen to have a more rapid growth rate compared to others. Lucky you, my nails don`t grow back very fast.
