What’s up people!

Today I’m going to talk about us! I know what you’re thinking, “Uhh, but we already know a lot about ourselves.” Yeah, I know that and I don’t mean ‘us’. I meant about the human body. The human body is more than just organs, obviously. It is one of the most fascinating things on earth. Well, I found so many interesting facts about the human body that you probably didn’t know:

  1. The human eye blinks an average of 4.2 million times a year.
