Don't Bug Me!

Hello everyone, I hope you are all feeling well this week-end. Myself, I was a bit under the weather on Friday. I even called in sick which is a rarity for me to do. I think it was a 24 hr virus, since I feel much better today. Thanks to all that wished me well, and offered advice toward a speedy recovery. Of course I didn't barf, but I did expel much body matter.
Much body matter! Projectile expulsion of much body matter! And often!

Since even I don't want to hear any more about that subject, that doe's give me the segue' into my educational post of the week. Wonderous facts about the Human Condition............

The average adult stool weighs about 4 ounces. About 1/2 of that bulk comprises of the dead bodies of bacteria that live in your intestines.

Your mouth produces about one quart of saliva a day.

You have approximately 4000 wax glands in each ear.

The average male foot exudes about a 1/2 pint of sweat a day.

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

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

A complete human skeleton is worth about 5000-7500 dollars to a medical student. The skull alone is worth only 450 bucks.

"Demodex Folliculorum" has 8 stumpy legs and a tail, is about 1/3 of a millimeter long, and lives in the oily reserves of hair folliculs. Mostly on the head, but also on your eyelashes and nipples.
Most adult humans have this mite.

And all in all the human body comprises enough fat to make 7 bars of soap. Enough iron to make a medium nail. Enough potassium to explode a toy cannon. Enough lime to white wash a small chicken coup. Enough sugar to fill a small jam jar. And enough sulfur to rid a dog of fleas.

And you thought you were just a hank of hair and a piece of bone, and was a walkin talkin, honey-comb!....G-Mans Educational post of the week. Peace!

We're getting some freezing rain right now, so far very light and intermittent.

I'll check back later, I'm gonna make some breakfast.:)

G-Man said...

I'm the only one up here so I can chill for a while.Then off to Tim Horton's and breakfast it is!

Manny said...

And medically speaking, hiccups are actually hiccoughs.

You mean I didn't have to waste my firecrackers blowing up my cousins little green army men and jeeps? Damn, I was ripped off.

G-Man said...

Doctor, whats wrong with her? We start off the conversation OK, then she starts babbling on different subjects....

"Is she from Ohio? Single? Beautiful? Works only 4 days a week? Drinks copious amounts of Starbucks?"

Yes!

" Nothing wrong, thats just Manny!"

SignGurl said...

I just puked from reading this post and you weren't here to hold my head.

barman said...

I think it looks safe out there, I might just venture out for breakfasts myself. I think I will try not to think about this post if I do that as I might have a hard time keeping breakfast down otherwise.

Glad you are feeling better. I spent a fair amount of time in bed myself yesterday as something seemed to be trying to drag me down.

Top cat said...

G-Man said...

Jenn, quit teasing me. Your in the john, upchucking, gargling mouthwash, and back before anyone knows your gone!

Barman, Is there an IHOP by you?

TC, Please don't mention the Lions till next Fall OK?

buddha_girl said...

Oh my God. So nasty. I think you passed your sickness on to me through the internet.

And the thought of my mucous membranes, bacterial bodies, and poopie weight is making me dry heave.

I think if I felt better, I'd be cackling at your nasty educational post!

Manny said...

I posted new. Hopefully, this will help you understand why I'm not always around.

Manny said...

Damn it g! You promised to hold our heads!

Yes, i blew up my cousins little green army men and jeep's up with firecrackers! And, I stole their match box cars! They are mine, all mine.

And I want to go storm chasing!
