"At the 20-week mark, the structures that will become the ovaries house roughly 6 to 7 million potential egg cells. From that point on, the number begins to decrease rapidly."

They only have use of around 300-500 because there are many many that fail. Internet research for the win.

One thing: Women don't "produce" egg cells, they are born with all of the ones they are ever going to have, and hit menopause when they run out(they lose one when the have Periods). The average woman has only 400-500 eggs.

Family Life,people, you learn this in school.

I want to know where they get their "7 million eggs" statistic. Because women only produce about 500 fully-fledged oocytes in their reproductive lifetime.

most bacteria in your body is beneficial, and you would die without it.


Would you necessarily *die*? I know the symbiotic bacteria are very useful, but are they absolutely essential? Off the top of my head, the only two things I know of that bacteria do in humans is break down complex sugars into simpler stuff that the human digestive system can handle and act as security guards to stop other bacteria setting up camp in the vagina (which is why antibiotics often cause thrush - they kill off the "security guard" bacteria).

um. Angilion, i think you have your facts wrong. we have about 40,000 hairs on our head


i) Most sources state at least twice that number. For some reason, the average varies a bit depending on hair colour.

ii) Humans have hair over nearly all of their body. It's extremely fine in many places for many people, sometimes too fine to even see, but it's there. If you get enough magnification on an apparently hairless part of your skin, you can see the hair follicles. The only truly hairless parts are eyelids, lips, palms and soles. Unless you have some form of baldness that stops hair growing, of course.

It's not as simple as half an inch per hair, though, because hair grows at different rates on different parts of the body.

To The-Sentinel,
Good point. Maybe it refers to the total daily growth of each hair on the body, added up. I still don't think it'll add up 65 feet per day, though. Maybe on Chewbacca, but not a human.

Bill Nye taught me that the surface area of my lungs are the same as a tennis court!

Picture a sponge, it may only be as big as your lungs(ish) but it can hold water because of the holes in it. It's all about surface area!

The one about hair growing 450 miles is bullsh*t. it grows 1/2 - 1 inch a month = 1ft a year, average = 75ft a lifetime.


Per hair.

Humans average about 5 million hairs.

evry human bends HER finger 25 mill times in a lifetime whats up with the her?


If you use what are now male-specific pronouns due to recent changes in English, quite a lot of people will complain.

Because most of those people are sexist hypocrites, they will not complain if you use what are and always have been female-specific pronouns.

It's generally considered to be a good thing to exclude male people from consideration on a social/political scale - that's what feminism is and it's been very successful.

So the common use of language increasingly excludes male people - doing so matches current social norms and thus attracts fewer complaints.

The other options are to make up pronouns, which will result in ridicule, or use plural pronouns (which are sex-neutral), which will result in complaints about grammar.

I think it's better to change grammar than to exclude half of humanity. 'They' can work well enough as both si

I don't get how the area of my lungs is equivalent to a tennis court....


That might be true in terms of total surface area. Lungs aren't just bags of air - there's a lot of complex structure inside.

A quick way to visually illustrate the idea is to get a sheet of paper and fold it like a concertina.

A4 is roughly 8x12 inches, so surface area is roughly 96 inches.

Fold it every inch along the longer side and you end up with a piece of paper that's 8x1 inches. Same piece of paper, same surface area, but the folding makes it seem much smaller.

@ broizfam
probably is 65 feet a day, considering there are 100,000 - 200,000 hairs on your head alone it's understandable.
