Do you poop? Of course you do. Is that disgusting? Well, if you ask me, the fact that our body stores sh*t inside of it before we actually release it is just, uck! But that’s the human body. As much as you wash yourself, spray on perfume and be hygienic… all that doesn’t matter once you read this. Cause, I’m about to tell you just how disgusting our bodies can be. And all you scientific rascals reading this – don’t even try to justify this with your science – I am not ready to hear that.
Parasites In Our Eyelashes
I get the whole parasite and bacteria or whatever, living in our tummy thing, but this – this is just bizarre, creepy and disgusting. As you’re reading this, teeny-tiny mites are crawling around in your eyelashes, living their best life.
These eyelash mites are actually tiny, cigar-shaped bugs living as a bunch on the base of your eyelashes. They are harmless and having them on your eyelashes is very normal. But they can turn harmful if you have way too many of them. They’re known as demodex and they each have four tiny legs that allow them to grip long, tube-shaped things like your eyelashes.
Dead Skin Under Your Bed
All the dust that gathers beneath your bed isn’t actually dust, it’s your dead skin cells. Yup, apparently we humans can shed skin like snakes do. An average night of sleep for a human see us shedding up to 12,000,000 dead skin flakes. So, where does it all go when you’re snoring away? On your mattress, or WORSE – under your bed. EW!
We’re All A**holes
Although some of us really do fit the term above, let’s get serious here. All of us started out as a butthole! When a human embryo’s cells start developing, you would think the hands or feet would be the beginning of development, but nope. The embryo starts developing from the anus first!
Belly Buttons And Bacteria
When you first started learning to take a shower by yourself, your parents would’ve taught you to always wash your belly button, because it can get filthy in there. But it’s even filthier than you think. Your belly button can hold up to 67 different species of bacteria. Just that one small place in your body can collect loads of filth and dirt.
I’ve never really given it much thought, but what does a brain actually feel like? I initially thought that it may be soft, but a little stiff – maybe like clay. And if you thought the same, you’re so wrong on this one. The brain is actually really, really soft and mushy – like melting butter. Humans have buttery brains y’all! What if you leave it out in the sun – will it melt? It might!
Okay, this one is neither disgusting nor creepy, but really cute. When you blush, your cheeks aren’t the only things that get all that heat and flush – your stomach lining can blush too. When you feel shy or embarrassed and you start blushing, your stomach lining can also become really red. Maybe that’s why we all feel butterflies in our tummy when we get excited or nervous. It all makes sense now.
Careful When You Sneeze
Some of us have a really loud and strong sneeze. We all know that one person in the office that sneezes and it shakes the whole premises – yeah I’m talking that kind of sneeze. Be careful, cause sneezing can actually break your rib cage. It is pretty rare, but not impossible, cause it does happen.
Oh! Another fun fact! Ever wondered why people tend to say “Bless You!” when you sneeze? That’s cause your heart literally stops for a few seconds when it happens. Speaking of the heart:
A Powerful Pump
Did you know that an average heart pumps blood at such a high volume that a ruptured artery can squirt blood as far as nine metres across a room?
An average human being actually produces 500 to 1,500 milliliters of gas per day. You stinky humans!
Kidneys Can Taste Pee
Your kidney actually has taste and smell receptors, and that is how a kidney tastes your urine for toxins.
Cleaner Pee Than Spit
Your pee is actually a whole lot cleaner and fresher than the spit in your mouth. All the toxins in your pee are really incomparable to the amount of bacteria in your spit!
Well, that’s the human body, people. And we have the audacity to say sh*t stinks when we ourselves are just a whole big pile of dirt walking around!
