    I couldn`t actually read the one about the papercut. It was too painful to think about. I was cringing about four sentences in.

    I guess Ive never actually had brainfreeze. I always thought that feeling was when the back of your throat gets too cold and starts to hurt.. I always thought it was a metaphor. I guess it isnt.

    They should research what this kind of layout and color-scheme does to your eyes and brain instead of writing down "facts" nobody is interested in.

    Wow this was drating retarded, i dont even need to mention how it`s not sourced. Wrinkled finger`s toes has nothing to do with the poo it mentioned. when i studdied anatomy one of the things we went over was osmosis. the reason you wrinkle in water is cause your body tried to balance the amount of salt to water ratio on the inside and outside of your skin. hence why you dont wrinkle in ocean water. cause there is already salt in it. This is why hydration I.V bags at hospitals have 0.9% salt, or your cells would burst. i`ve found so many bullpoo claims in this info-card that i can`t recommend taking any of it serious. if you really wana know these things. Just go look it up yourself..

    I`ve heard that part of the reason poop is brown is because of dead blood cells. Is this true?

    "I`ve heard that part of the reason poop is brown is because of dead blood cells. Is this true?"

    Yes! The article just doesn`t go that far upstream. When red blood cells die, much of the cell is recycled, but some of it cannot be recycled and so goes through a series of biological pathways to form bile, which ultimately makes stercobilin.

    "So why is poop sometimes not brown, but other colors like green, or even tan?"

    Green: Prob an indication that the food has moved through the small intestine faster than can be accommodated by bile production and so essential nutrients have not been taken up. The stool may also be pretty soft. There are also some very rare diseases associated with green stool.

    Tan: An indication of low production of bile. It is common to have bile production levels fluxuate, but a consistent light-colored stool may indicate a problem with the liver, gall bladder or pancreas.

    (Not offering a diagnosis of anything, just casual banter.)

    Boring, commonly known facts with the focus on the wrong part of the answer. There`s too much writing and not enough useful information. It even misses out the most important parts of at least a couple of the facts.

    in the mosquito bite section, they used "sight" instead of "site." the author is an idiot.
