Thought these were really interesting......

A smile uses 17 muscles while a frown uses 43.
The smallest muscle of the body measures 1/20th of an inch. It's called the stapedius; it activates the stirrup that sends vibrations from the eardrum to the inner ear.
The strongest muscle of the body is in your behind; it's also called the gluteus maximus.
The tongue is also one of the strongest muscles in the body.
At birth, you have about 300 bones, but as you grow older, small bones join together. Adults end up with about 206 bones.
Almost every seven years, your body replaces the equivalent of an entirely new skeleton.
Laughing and coughing puts more pressure on your spine than walking or standing.
The largest bone is the pelvis, or hip bone.
The smallest bone is the stirrup, deep in the ear. It is hardly larger than a grain of rice.
If the heart is taken out of the body, it will continue to beat.
The heart pumps more than 300 quarts of blood per hour.
The heart will beat approximately 2.7 billion times in a lifetime.
There are almost 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the human body.
Red blood cells are formed at the rate of 2 million per second.
Within a tiny droplet of blood, there are 5 million red blood cells, 300,000 platelets and 10,000 white cells.
It takes about 1 minute for a red blood cell to circle the whole body.
The brain continues to send out electrical wave signals until approximately 37 hours after death.
The brain stops growing when you are about 15.
The average person will breathe about 75 million gallons of air in a lifetime.
People under 30 take in twice as much oxygen as people over 80.
The right lung is slightly larger than the left.
A person at rest usually breathes between 12 and 15 times a minute.
Women and children have faster breathing rates than men.
The average male will eat about 50 tons of food during his lifetime to keep a weight of 150 pounds.
It takes the body six hours to digest a high-fat meal versus two hours for a carbohydrate meal.
For the average person, it takes eight seconds for food to travel down the esophagus, three to five hours in the small intestine, and three to four days in the large intestine.
Your stomach produces a new lining every three days in order to avoid digesting itself in its production of acid.
Muscles contract in waves to move food down the esophagus. This means that food would get to a person's stomach, even if he or she were standing on their head.

car problems

Josh and I went to go out to eat for my birthday and I picked a place that was pretty far away, but I wanted to swtop by this halloween store before we went that was only a few blocks from where we live, so we stopped and on our way back to our car, we hopped in and it wouldn't work....we tried everything, not having a cell phone and all, and it wouldn't work, so sucky night it started out, finally someone lent us their cell phone so we could call one of Josh's staff members to pick us up, they did and we were thankful then that westopped at that store otherwise we would have been a ways away from help....God is so good :o) Ended up having to tow the car, it's a lot cheaper than I thought to tow a car. But we didn't want it to ruin our night so we asked a friend if we could borrow her car, she let us, but by the time we got to the resturant, we had to order it to go because it was closing, lol.....turned out an eventful night, but happy 22nd birthday to me :o)

Kudos to you Mr. Bush

"Marriage is the most enduring and important human institution, honored and encouraged in all cultures and by every religious faith. Ages of experience have taught us that the commitment of a husband and a wife to love and to serve one another promotes the welfare of children and the stability of society. Marriage cannot be cut off from its cultural, religious, and natural roots without weakening this good influence on society. Government, by recognizing and protecting marriage, serves the interests of all." -President Bush, In his May 2006 radio address,talking of the importance of the Marriage Protection Amendment

Found that and thought was really cool, most people give President Bush such a horrible name, but I think he stands up for some really important things....good to have a president like that. :o)
