Did you know that you get a new stomach lining every three to four days? If you didn't, the strong acids your stomach uses to digest food would also digest your stomach.


If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

This will really make your skin crawl: Every square inc*h of skin on the human body has about 32 million bacteria on it, but fortunately, the vast majority of them are harmless.

Blood has a long road to travel: Laid end to end, there are about 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the human body. And the hard-working heart pumps about 2,000 gallons of blood through those vessels every day.

Dunno about crushed up cockroaches, but some people around here swear by brake oil (yup the one used in vehicles) for cuts, wounds, scrapes. It burns like hell but works as an anti-septic and helps with the recovery in the long run...
