Although you’re going to spend your whole life in your body, there are probably numerous things you don’t know about it. That sounds kind of weird right? It’s your own body for crying out loud! But it’s true. In some ways your body is a great mystery. A paradox even. It is the most fragile thing we know but at the same time it is also the toughest. People have died just slipping and falling on a toy while others have survived falls from over 10 kilometers (just do some googling!). It’s just one of the many ways your body is weirder than you think.

So how can this be? As a doctor once said, “sometimes one shot will kill you, and sometimes 20 won’t”. You just never know. But it’s not just in its “toughness” that your body is so paradoxical. It’s actually quite a masterpiece. Your brain is more powerful than any supercomputer in existence. And the complexity of just one of your eyeballs outdoes even the greatest feats of engineering known to man (which were ironically conceived by the human brain). Either way, your body is an incredible feat of engineering. You should be proud of it! Or at least take care of it. These are 25 ways that your body is weirder than you think!
