That's so funny - I TOTALLY looked at my thumb, and then measured out two more of my thumb with my other thumb and index finger. I'd have a really long penis if I was a guy!

Olmec Sinclair said...

Measure your thumb from the wrist forward.

ok, so everybody else was interested in the thumb/penis one.

I think that..

- Side by side, 2000 cells from the human body could cover about one square inch.

.. has to be wrong. This would mean that each cell would be 0.56 mm on a side, which is just crazy. Maybe you meant 2000 cells lined up would measure an inch long.
