No Nonsense girl said...

wow, interesting and funny!!!

Yup, i checked!!!! :-)

Bubba's Sis said...

Yes - I did check. Also, your foot is the same size as your forearm (wrist to elbow). And supposedly you are as tall as your arms held out wide (does that make sense?).

And #11 - that's why I don't work out. If I stop it'll just be worse. ;-)

Just Me said...

Very interesting facts! I love reading about things liek that. And yeah, of course I had to make sure that my nose and thumb are the same length. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. Your page is really cute btw

Neila said...

300 muscles?!!! No wonder I have no sense of balance! ;-P

And don't forget, your foot is the length of your arm from your elbow to your wrist. (I remember that one from Pretty Woman.)

Buck Naked Politics said...

Great list. I didn't know 1, 5 or 13.

Amazing Gracie said...

I love lists like this! And yep! I did check my nose against my thumb - not exact but pretty darned close. Your ears and your nose are the only things that keep growing...and I'm proof. Gag....

Mike M said...

I did check out the length of my nose when I read it HA!

Great Post!

Linda said...

As a matter of fact, yes I did check out the length of my nose and thumb! I don't think it's right, though, my thumb seems a lot bigger! Do you have to stick your finger up your nose to make sure it's accurate??

Shelby said...

Fantastic post!!

Mags said...

Great list Tisha! I didn't check the length yet, but I did glance at my thumb and think, Man...I really DO have a big nose!

Mo said...

why don't they fill potholes with human thighbones???

Not So Anonymous Michelle said...

Love your lists!! This is a great one! I'm sure I can put some spin on the 7 seconds for food to reach stomach and relate that to my having a weight problem, I'll think on that awhile.

Akelamalu said...
