Actually, that's a lie. There's no agreement on how many muscles it takes to perform each of these actions. You can read more about it here. Smile

That's a nice list of facts. I especially like 2.
I'm not sure how 8 is about the body though (I would consider it more of a social fact than a biological one).
And 22 and 23 seem to contradict each other (unless 29 is the upper limit and 25 is the average).

And because we spend sleeping 8 hours in day, this means that a woman says in a hour about 438 words, in a minute about 7 words.
She says in practice a word every 9 seconds.


The question is now: How has she the time to do anyting else? Surprised

So what is worse? I guess it's more likely that germs in your mouth makes you sick compared to germs on your hands.
