Abnormal Fingernails

Guys, I am upgrading my blog and i am giving you some useful info about the nail growth.   
I am just wondering how healthy nails these will be. 

             Longest Fingernails - Female
“Lee Redmond (USA)” hasn’t cut her nails since 1979. The total length of her nails is 7 m 51.3 cm (24 ft 7.8 in).
The measurements of each fingernail is as follows:-
Right hand Fingernails
Thumb 76.4 cm (30.1 in)
Index finger 72.3 cm (28.5 in)
Middle finger 74.1 cm (29.2 in)
Ring finger 73.6 cm (29 in )
Little finger 71.6 cm (28.2 in)
Left hand Fingernails

Thumb 80 cm (31.5 in)
Index finger 76.4 cm (30.1 in)
Middle finger 76.7 cm (30.2 in)
Ring finger 76.2 cm (30 in)
Little finger 73.6 cm (29 in)

Longest Fingernails – Male
As of February 25, 1995, the total measurement of Shridhar Chillal's fingernails (Pune, Maharashtra, India) was 226 inches for the five nails on his left hand (thumb 52 inches, index finger 40 inches, middle finger 43 inches, ring finger 46 inches, and pinkie 45 inches). He has not cut his nails since 1952.

There is One similarity between Nails and Hair and that is,nails are made of the same protein as hair, called Keratin .
Amazingly the Nails cannot sweat. This is because the nail bed does not have the sweat glands.Only the skin around the nails gets sweaty.
Fingernails and toenails grow at the rate of 0.1 mm daily. For a finger nail to re grow completely it will take some 4 to 6 months.
Men’s nails grow faster than women’s nails. The finger nails for both men and women grow faster than toe nails.
The middle finger nail grows faster and the thumb nail is the slowest growing nail.
Seasons and weather also affect nail growth. Nails grow faster in warm climates and during daytime, than in cold climates and at night. Also Nails grow much faster during pregnancy.
Nails grow at different speeds on both hands. For right handed people nails on right hand grow faster than the nails on the left hand.
Elephants have 5 nails on each of their front legs and most often only 4 nails per back leg.
Some Years back there was very popular news in the Air that “The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its pH is 2.8. It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days”
Experimentally this was proven to be wrong.

13 Weeks Fetal Yawning

What is a Yawn and why do we yawn?

It is something which has fascinated us from thousands of years.

In the earlier days people had a superstitious belief that yawning is a sign that danger is nearing.
Also some people use to say that a person must cover his or her mouth while yawning so that the soul does not escape through the mouth.

But what does science say about Yawning?

Yawning is a reflex of inhalation and exhalation that draws more oxygen into the bloodstream.
It's a built-in physical reaction that we often don't have control over.
We think that we yawn because we are tired . But this is not the only cause for a yawn. We also yawn when we are under stress , when we get bored . Emotion
also will cause Yawning.

Is Yawning contagious?

Sometimes i my selves have noticed that when i see someone Yawning i also yawn Automatically :)
Researchers have found that 40-60% people who see some one yawning will yawn themselves.
Even reading the word " YAWN " will make some people Yawn.

Yawning is not limited to Humans. Even the animals Yawn several times. Birds like cockatiel parrots,penguins also Yawn.

Some of the scientific explanations of why we yawn are related to our physical needs.
One of the explanation is that when our blood needs more oxygen we will yawn.
Yawning will regulate our body temperature.

How yawning is useful?
Yawning is an easiest way to convey the message that You are not interested and got bored.:)

OK then how many times did you Yawn while reading this post?:)

Crocodile People

Ancient Egyptians worshipped crocodile as the Lord of water and king of Nile river.
It was also the symbol of pharaoh(Firaun).
Unlike those people who kill crocodile for various reasons there are some people in this world who really respect crocodiles a lot and it’s the totem god for them.
In papua, New guinea the "Crocodile People" use to scar the bodies of adult male members to resemble the pattern of crocodile .
Their bodies are deeply cut to mimic the design of crocodile skin and during this process they are told the stories of their ancestors .They learn to withstand great pain.

The wounds are later rubbed with a mixture of oil,ashes and mud. And it
becomes like this

Costliest Crocodile Skin Bag

Crocodile skin gets two different roles.

The skin on its belly is very soft and is considered as one of the best and finest. That’s why in many tribal societies it is used as a symbol of high status.

And the back skin is so hard that it reflects arrows, spears and even bullets!!!!! Hmmm really amazing isn't it?

The crocodile’s skin is also used for making purse also. Guess what its really really costly. It costs about $ 15,000 !! Almost all 23 species of crocodiles are in real danger. Hmmm If this continues then surely we will see only artificial crocodiles in zoo :(

The Ricky Ruched Crocodile Bag is the costliest bag made from crocodile skin . It costs $ 15000 !!!!
Its Measurement is given as 14 x 7 x 10.5.

Crocs Sentimental?

You know some people say crocodiles cry!!!!

Do they really cry while eating Humans?
He he well believe it or not they really weep while feasting not because they regret(Feel sorry for killing) but due to some physiological reasons. It’s just a fake remorse.
That’s why there is a saying “Cry Crocodile Tears” which is used as a common expression for depicting fake sadness.
