Now for some intriguing facts regarding human senses and tears from That's a Fact Jack: A Collection of Utterly Useless Information [Updated] by Harry Bright and Jakob Anser:



"Humans actually have nine senses. Besides hearing, sight, smell, taste, and touch, there's also equilibrioception (balance), nociception (pain), proprioception and kinaesthesia (joint motion and acceleration), and thermoception (temperature). Some scientists include interoceptive senses, such as hunger and fatigue, pushing the number of senses into double digits."

Just whoa. And I think I'm missing my equilibrioception, because I have no coordination with can relate to balance I suppose! LOL!




"Humans swallow a quart of snot a day."

Just gross!!!!




"Studies show that men find the smell of women's tears unattractive."

That makes an odd sort of sense.

  2. I don't guess that I've ever smelled tears before. I didn't realize they even had a smell.
