    Ever notice how sometimes the moon has a large halo around it on some nights.... or perhaps during the day you'll see a "blob" in the sky that looks like a rainbow, but it's more of a colorful patch? It typically rains within two days of either of those events.

    Do you know any odd little tidbits of info?

    If you have a muscle ache or spasm...gently stretching the muscle with deep, controlled breathing will make the spasm/ache go away 10x's faster.

    Of the 206 bones in the average human adult's body, 106 are in the hands and feet. (54 in the hands and 52 in the feet)

    Humans are born with 300 bones in their body, however when a person reaches adulthood they only have 206 bones. This occurs because many of them join together to make a single bone.

    A human head remains conscious for about 15 to 20 seconds after it is been decapitated.

    In 1972, a group of scientists reported that you could cure the common cold by freezing the big toe.

    The human brain stops growing at the age of 18.

    Rigor Mortis -

    6 hours after death

    Chemical changes cause muscular stiffening, which first locks small muscles in the eye-lids, then moves to neck and hands. Last areas to stiffen are large muscles in limbs. Rigor Mortis takes about six hours to start, another six to complete, and then passes in another twelve hours. Process is accelerated by high temperatures and by extreme muscle activity prior to death. Autolysis may start - organs that contain digestive enzymes begin to digest themselves...
