    Greetings one & all!

    Hope you are enjoying your time with us here at the forum ...

    I found a trivia site the other day -

    90 Mind-Blowing Human Body Facts | FactRetriever.com

    Hard to pick out just one ...

    If a human being’s DNA were uncoiled, it would stretch 10 billion miles, from Earth to Pluto and back.

    Enjoy your day!

    Fingernails grow faster on the hand a person writes with. They also grow faster than toenails, and faster on longer fingers.

    I suspected such. :oops:

    Ummmm....that DNA quote is rather misleading.
    The length of a human chromosome, completely uncoiled, would be anywhere between 6 to 9 feet.
    The stellar cruise number that you are quoting would be if you unraveled the chromosome of each and every cell in your body, and strung them all out in a single line. ;)

    Well I am right-handed and always appear to be filing the right thumbnail down more than the left one, but I didn't know this for fact until Geoff's post. :thumbsup:

    Aha, so you already have proven this one;). Filing is good, to make an accurate test:). My grow speed of both nails depend on diet also, I know
