Interesting Facts about the Human Body

We’ve got this amazing machine called the human body through which we interact with other humans. Take a moment to think about the weirdness of this… of your body. Weirder still, other people identify and recognize us through this skeleton structured and meat covered system that’s called our body. If you’ve not exactly looked at yourself like this before, and you’re beginning to feel a little weird, then get set, we’re about to weird you out on a whole different level. This post is a compilation of some pretty weird facts about the human body. We’ll be exploring our collective weirdness under three different headings which include food (well, fuel for the machine), sleep (maintenance I suppose), and exercise. These are all significant aspects that contribute to the performance of our body and these weird facts will only help you appreciate how interesting we are as a species. Now, let’s cut to the chase.



  • You eat a lot of Wasps: Have you eaten some figs recently? Figs get pollinated by female wasps whose wings get clipped off while still within the fig. This leaves them trapped, killing them within. The dead wasps then get broken down by the figs’ enzymes. You’ll never look at figs the same way again
  • Someone once sold “Tomato Drugs”: There was a time when the public was made to believe that tomatoes had the ability to cure illnesses like jaundice, indigestion and diarrhea. This must have been a pretty good business which crumbled in the 1840s when people were able to actually prove that tomato had no such properties.
  • Potatoes are not what they seem: The content of potatoes can be broken down into 20% solid and 80% water. Don’t ask me to explain that, I don’t understand either


  • Kids steal your sleep: Within the first year of raising a new born baby, a good percentage of parents skip between 400 and 800 hours of sleep. Those late night feedings sure take their toll!
  • Sleeping pills may be worsening your insomnia: It may not seem so initially, but some sleeping pills work by suppressing the Rapid Eye Movement part of sleep which is very important. In the long run, this may end up messing with your circadian rhythm, ultimately making the situation worse.
  • Get Sleep or get drunk: After losing sleep for roughly 17 hours, most people display symptoms that are identical to those of someone with a blood alcohol level of 0.05%. For your next high, ditch the bottle, pull an all-nighter instead


  • Working out makes you look sharp… as well as stay sharp: Research has shown that the improved blood circulation triggered by exercise is capable of improving brain function by the creation of new brain cells and more brain activity. Work out more, get smarter!
  • Music helps: Listening to some tunes while hitting the gym has been shown to help people have more intense and effective work outs. So next time you’re packing your gym bag, throw in your headsets.

It is undeniable as we live from day to day with the basic routines that we have at home, in school, in our offices, and a lot of other tasks that should be done. Technology nowadays can be seen everywhere. What is amazing is that, everywhere as well, a lot of these products of the advancement of technology is very much utilized in a day to day basis. 


For instance, as you wake up in the morning, what is the instrument or machine that you would use in order to setup an alarm? Do you even bother using a real alarm clock? Or would you just rather use your smart phone to do this task for you? On the other hand, as you look at the weather forecast for today, do you wait for newspapers to give you an update, or would you rather use the internet to check the daily weather update? As you are on your way to work, do you bother waiting for a taxi cab, or would you just choose to live life easier by using an application that can look for drivers near you to give you a ride service?

It just made the lives of every human being on this earth a better life instead. From the computers that we use at home, to the database that we have at work, to the machines in industries that are manipulated and operated by computers, to the cashiering systems at some coffee shops where we often grab our coffee on our way to work, to the elevators, and even in getting some latest news and updates, we are using and benefiting from the perks of technology. 


Behind these progress and developments that we can see, have we ever asked who the people behind these improvements and advancements are? Have we ever thought who are the people who made the existence of these technological evolutions possible?  

We benefit from the perks of having a fantastic and magnificent improvement in the world today. But let us also know who are these people behind the success of every technological advancement as of today. We should be thanking the few people who can make almost everything possible nowadays. These people are no other than software developers, IT specialists, programmers, web application developers, software engineers, computer engineers, computer developers, and computer scientists.  

We probably do not see them every single day but they are just in front of the computer getting busy about how they can program some unimaginable and complicated codes that would make every person’s life easier. These people have a lot of prerequisites in order to make those programs that we can see everywhere. They are exposed to radiation and sickness more than ever as they have a different body clock and they also have a very isolated environment. 


For instance, a web developer or programmer needs a time for concentration, focus, and some isolation in order to have the proper environment that can give them the right peace for their minds as they analyze these hard codes. They would also need some silence because some programmers would need a lot of these in order to be successful in their programs by running it without disturbance from other people. They would also need a well-ventilated room that can give them a proper and perfect environment where they could have a comfortable and wonderful work place. So it is important for these genius people to have a room or office with an air conditioning system that would seem as if it was maintained by ac repair spring hill 

There are quite a lot of prerequisites in order for these people to have a good output. It would probably seem weird for people who have a different job nature to understand these things however, this is just perfectly normal for people such as developers and computer programmers in order to have a successful program. If only they could work in a place where nobody else is there to cause them disturbance, these people would surely do it.  

That is why a lot of people who are working with this kind of job just work at home instead of working in a proper office. They would prefer to be in an isolated room where no one can cause any kinds of disturbance. It would even seem impossible for them to see a lot of people since this is the nature of how their job works. A lot of focus and concentration is needed to have the best quality of output.  

So for people who know someone who works as a programmer or developer, better yet understand how difficult and how hassle is it to analyze and understand binary codes, hard codes, and unimaginable kinds of programs.
