Stars Quote ~ Neil Gaiman

“A philosopher once asked, “Are we human because we gaze at the stars, or do we gaze at them because we are human?” Pointless, really…”Do the stars gaze back?” Now that’s a question.”
– Neil Gaiman

Humor Quote

“Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying ‘End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH’, the paint wouldn’t even have time to dry.” –Terry Pratchett

How many times is it appropriate to say “What?” before
you just nod and smile because you still didn’t hear or
understand a word they said?

I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of
cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front.
Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants never get
dirty, and you can wear them forever.

Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber &
dumber every year?

There’s no worse feeling than that millisecond you’re
sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a
little too far.

As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate
drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I
always hate bicyclists.

Sometimes I’ll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times
and still not know what time it is.

Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their
car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail
on the Donkey – but I’d bet my behind everyone can find and push
the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes
closed, first time, every time!

I keep some people’s phone numbers in my phone just so I know not
to answer when they call.

We

We eat
We cook
We drink
We sleep
We talk
We walk
We read
We go to school
We study

We play
We travel
We write
We type
We draw
We watch TV

We laugh
We smile
We cry

All the things we do or, for some people some of them.
We’re all human, and since we’re on this planet for a very short time, we should enjoy everything we do.
It’s what makes life on Earth interesting.

Human Mysteries

Some of theseĀ  I already knew; about the lungs, the number of bones in the feet, and about saliva.

Human Mysteries Part 1
The Human Body is a treasure trove of mysteries, one that still confounds
doctors and scientists about the details of its working. It’s not an
overstatement to say that every part of your body is a miracle. Here are
facts about your body, some of which may leave you stunne d.
1. It’s possible for your body to survive without a surprisingly large fraction
of its internal organs. Even if you lose your stomach, your spleen, 75% of
your liver, 80% of your intestines, one kidney, one lung, and virtually every
organ from your pelvic and groin area, you wouldn’t be very healthy, but you
would live.
2. During your lifetime, you will produce enough saliva to fill two swimming
pools. Actually, Saliva is more important than you realize. If your saliva
cannot dissolve something, you cannot taste it.
3. The largest cell in the human body is the female egg and the smallest is
the male sperm. The egg is actually the only cell in the body that is visible
by the naked eye.
4. The strongest muscle in the human body is the tongue and the hardest
bone is the jawbone.
5. Human feet have 52 bones, accounting for one quarter of all the human
body’s bones.
6. Feet have 500,000 sweat glands and can produce more than a pint of
sweat a day.
7. The acid in your stomach is strong enough to dissolve razor blades. The
reason it doesn’t eat away at your stomach is that the cells of your stomach
wall renew themselves so frequently that you get a new stomach lining every
three to four days.
8. The human lungs contain approximately 2,400 kilometers (1,500 mi) of
airways and 300 to 500 million hollow cavities, having a total surface area
of about 70 square meters, roughly the same area as one side of a tennis
court. Furthermore, if all of the capillaries that surround the lung cavities
were unwound and laid end to end, they would extend for about 992
kilometers. Also, your left lung is smaller than your right lung to make room
for your heart.
9. Sneezes regularly exceed 100 mph, while coughs clock in at about 60 mph.
10. Your body gives off enough heat in 30 minutes to bring half a gallon of
water to a boil.
11. Your body has enough iron in it to make a nail 3 inches long.
12. Earwax production is necessary for good ear health. It protects the
delicate inner ear from bacteria, fungus, dirt and even insects. It also cleans
and lubricates the ear canal.

John Foster Dulles

The world will never have lasting peace so long as people reserve for war the finest human qualities. Peace, no less than war, requires idealism and self-sacrifice and a righteous and dynamic faith.
