  1. Scientists say the higher your I.Q. the more you dream.
  2. The largest cell in the h uman body is the female egg.
  3. The smallest is the male sperm.

  7. A pair of human feet contain 250,000 sweat glands.
  8. A full bladder is roughly the size of a soft ball.
  9. The acid in your stomach is strong enough to dissolve razor blades.
  10. The human brain cell can hold 5 times as much information as the Encyclopedia Britannica. (But the retrieval system, at least mine, sucks.)
  11. It takes the food seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach.
  12. The average human dream lasts 2-3 seconds.
  13. Men without hair on their chests are more likely to get cirrhosis of the liver than men with hair.

LOL Maria. I hardly ever remember any of my dreams. I'm going to choose to believe that I dream a lot, all night long (cuz I'm freaking brilliant, too!). Maybe some time I'll share my story of the last dream I had (that I remember), involving James Spader...
