This card came from my swap buddy Sebastian I don't know why but I really really like it, maybe because I think it's quite original compared to the typical postcards.
He mentions he loves human anatomy and I thought since we have this card, it would be fun to share some facts about the human body today instead of the usual facts about some place! (: 

So here you have so fun facts about our bodies:
  • Every hour one billion cells in the body must be replaced
  • Human thighbones are stronger than concrete
  • Our eyes are always the same size from birth, but our nose and ears never stop growing
  • The average cough comes out of your mouth at 60 miles (96.5 km) per hour.
  • Beards are the fastest growing hairs on the human body. If the average man never trimmed his beard, it would grow to nearly 30 feet long in his lifetime
  • Babies’ eyes do not produce tears until the baby is approximately six to eight weeks old
  • Every person has a unique tongue print
  • A sneeze can exceed the speed of 100 mph
  • Dead cells in the body ultimately go to the kidneys for excretion
  • The smile is the most frequently used facial expression. A smile can use anywhere from a pair of 5 to 53 facial muscles
  • One out of 20 people have an extra rib
  • People with darker skin will not wrinkle as fast as people with lighter skin
  • 85% of the population can curl their tongue into a tube
  • It takes food seven seconds to go from the mouth to the stomach via the esophagus
  • Women hearts beat faster than men
  • In one day your heart beats 100,000 times

And if you want some more  here and here you have some more facts I found pretty amusing 

Dziekuje Sebastian!
