I know one amazing fact : A woman's ovaries contain nearly half a million ovules, but only 400 have the opportunity to create a new life.

Did you know that blood travels through the whole body and come back to the heart with only a heart pump. In addition, you need to breath by your nasal to enter a clean air to your body. Also, the small intestine is 5 metres long if it is straight, but because it takes a loopy shape in our body it looks much smaller than that.

Hi. Do you know the English name for that? It's called the Golden Ball. But because it's a French award, we also use the name in French (Ballon d'Or).

The eyes receive approximately 90 percent of all information processed by the brain, making us basically visual creatures.

I know a bit amazing fact about human's body.
The brain consumes the amount of power as a 10-watt light bulb and nerve signals to and from the brain can travel 273 km a hour.
Our heart is incredible, it pumps about 7570 litres of blood through our bodies everyday. Although the heart has almost nothing to do with feelings, it is said to be the symbol of love.:)

No no, I am not excellent as you thought. I only know a bit about fields. Our knowledge is just a raindrop of a ocean and just a star of the universe.
Elsa007 is like a librarian who has the key to the library.:D

I know how long is your thumb finger is exactly the same size of your nose. Have you try to proof it? I did and it worked for me.
I know not all of us see the same colours. And I'm not talking about any disease. Even if the colour is "red" or "green" or anything, you could not see exactly the same colour that I'm seeing. I guess that's the reason some people like some colours that others just don't. I love blue and green.
I know the left hand nails grow slower than the right hand nails, that's because most of the times you use the right hand. Unless you're left-handed, then you use more your left hand so your nails in this hand will grow faster than the other.
I know pubic hair, eyebrow hair and eyelashes hair stops growing at a time, it's not the same thing with the hair in our heads: it just doesn't stop never. (Probably you notice this yet, but I wanted to tell anyway)
I know other things, but I don't know how to say them in english, haha. It will be next time. :) Sorry, hope you enjoy it.

Hi Ofelia,
Wow... Interesting! Soon I examined the length of my thumb and nose, but my thumb is slightly longer anyhow. The result wasn't possibly the same...
But I agree with you about the color. Actually there're many variations in 'blue', 'green' 'purple' etc... so only I can say; I love bluish, for example. Also the combinations of the colors will change the impression of the color you see!
I haven't thought about the fact of nails! But it's understandable as well as hair! They share a common habit that they grow for protection and supplement, depending on DNA...
Well, views in this light, we're never be alone but always with these amazing millions of cells! ツ
Looking forward to hearing your other facts about the body! Thanks for sharing!

Hi Ofelia,
Wow! You know a lot of facts about the human body. I just tested your theory about the thumb and the nose being the same length and I think you're right! It worked for me! 
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team).

If you stretched out the 300,000,000 capillaries in your lungs end to end, the line would extend from Seattle to San Diego, or about 1,300 miles
The human brain can read up to 1,000 words per minute.
Human fingers are so sensitive, that if your fingers were the size of Earth, you could feel the difference between a house and a car.

I know that when you do something nice , in your brain creates endorphins ( hormone), and also is creating serotonin and dopamine( these hormones addictive). For example when you do sport , in your brain it is creating endorphins.

You know very well, Komorniki! Aha momentツ! Although I've heard that 'nice' can be interpreted differently in individuals. For instance, what a serial killer feels nice would be different from ordinary people....... aiiieee!!

Have you heard about 'Glabella'! It is the space between your eyebrows!
Another interesting word 'Borborygmi' - it is the noise or sound which our stomach makes when we are hungry!
