Your lips appear red because of the concentration of tiny capillaries (a type of blood vessel) just below the skin. The blood in these vessels is bright red because it is highly oxygenated. Lips turn blue in cold weather because the cold causes the capillaries to constrict and the blood loses oxygen and becomes darker. When a person has lost a great deal of blood, or is anemic, the lips appear pale.

Hiccups are muscle spasms in the throat and diaphragm. The sound they make is caused by rapid closure of the vocal cords. It is generally believed that these abrupt diaphragmatic contractions do not serve any useful purpose. Hiccups often start for no apparent reason and they usually disappear after a few minutes. Rarely, hiccups can persist for days, weeks, or months. The best way to get them to stop is to relax and forget about them so the diaphragm and throat will calm down. Perhaps this is what some home remedies for hiccups are based on (such as scaring a person).

When astronauts remain weightless in space for prolonged periods, their bones lose a measurable amount of weight and thickness. So weightlessness actually causes them to shrink.

How long is a fruitcake edible? Quite a long time (that is, if you consider it edible to begin with). According to "The Joy of Cooking" by Irma Rombauer, Marion Rombauer Becker, and Ethan Becker, fruitcakes "well-wrapped and stored in airtight tins, are reputed to remain enjoyable for as long as 25 years; we have not sampled one." The cakes are saturated with alcoholic liquors to keep down mold (and, of course, to taste better).

According to Pennsylvania Dutch and French tradition, "Bells Nichols" is Santa Claus' brother. He is said to visit every home on New Year's Eve and fill empty plates with cakes and cookies. Guess he's making up for all those sweets Santa took on Christmas Eve.

Humans have fewer bones as they grow older.

Infants are born with 300 to 350 bones. As they grow up, some of those bones fuse together. The average adult has just 206 bones. Those bones don't weigh that much, either. On average, the skeletal system accounts for less than twenty percent of your weight.

How many basic tastes are there.

It's usually said that there are four basic tastes: sweet, sour, bitter, and salty. However, the Japanese add the taste 'umami' and some Western food scientists are beginning to take the idea of a fifth taste seriously. 'Umami' has been variously translated as 'savory,' 'pungent,' and 'meaty.' The taste is conveyed by several substances naturally occurring in foods, such as glutamates and aspartates.

More muscles to frown than it does to smile!

Humans aren't the only animals that use mosquito repellent. Capuchin monkeys living in the tropical forests of Venezuela anoint themselves with the oils produced by millipedes by massaging the little creatures into their fur. The oils are rich in defensive chemicals called benzoquinones, which prevent mosquitoes from harassing the millipedes. 'We think this is the clearest case yet' of an animal's using organic material for medicinal purposes, Ximena Valderrama, a graduate student in anthropology at Columbia University, told the New York Times. 'We're fortunate that the chemical analysis leaves very little room for doubt.'

Do millipedes really have 1,000 legs?

Millipedes are commonly known as 'thousand leggers,' but they usually only have a measly few hundred legs. The MOST number of legs counted on a millipede is 752. (Most have less than 200-300.) You'd think that all those legs would make them extraordinarily fast, but having too many legs, like too many cooks, is not necessarily efficient. Because of the numerous legs, the animals walk slowly, with a wavelike motion of the legs down the body. However, the legs do provide the force needed to burrow into the ground.

Monkeys are divided into two easy-to-remember categories: Old World monkeys and New World monkeys. Old World monkeys, including baboons and macaques, are more closely related to apes and humans. New World monkeys, found only in the Western Hemisphere, include tamarins, marmosets, and capuchins. The cute little monkey that spied on Indiana Jones and Marion was a capuchin, but capuchins don't live in northern Africa where the film takes place! They range from northern South American north to southern Mexico, depending on the species. Here's an interesting fact: The capuchin monkey was named after a European hairstyle because the distinctive crown of hair resembles the cowl, or capuche, of an order of Franciscan friars. Capuchins, the stereotypical 'organ grinder monkeys,' are extremely intelligent monkeys, demonstrating cue-producing behaviors and the use of tools. Their intelligence and even temperament make them excellent choices for film and television roles.
