You’ll find out that subjects like the human body, food, animals and history are far more surprising and exciting than you have ever imagined. So dive in and be prepared to be amazed, amused and astounded.

Unbelievable Body Facts

An operation on a patient in a Belgrade hospital was disrupted when two surgeons started to fight. They took their punch-up outside and the assistant surgeon completed the procedure.

A Michigan couple opened a parcel delivered to their home and were shocked to find a liver and an ear inside. The parts should have been delivered to a nearby research laboratory.

A British pensioner who lost her false teeth discovered that her dog had eaten them. The dog had a three hour operation to have them removed.

Florida girl Jennifer Mee hiccupped continuously for five weeks. The hiccups stopped as suddenly as they had started.

A Yemeni man was found to have four kidneys instead of two. Although he was offered money for his spare ones, he decided that they were a gift from Allah and kept all four.

A New Zealand tree surgeon broke his leg near the top of a 40-metre (130 feet) high tree. He was injured further when the rescue helicopter swung him into another tree.

A Chinese man has grown the nails on his left hand for 15 years so that their total length is more than one metre (3 feet). He avoids crowded places in case one of them gets broken.

A Brazilian woman who had suffered from stomach pain for years was finally given an X-ray that revealed a scalpel inside her body. The surgical tool had been left there 23 years earlier when she had given birth by caesarean section.

An 80-year-old Chinese man agreed to have his hair washed for the first time in 23 years. It took twelve relatives and friends five hours to get all the grime out of his 2-metre (6 feet) long matted locks, followed by his beard which measured 1.5 metres (5 feet).

Surgeons trying to correct the limp of a 5-year-old boy in China lengthened the wrong leg. The confusion arose when the boy was anaesthetised whilst lying on his back and operated on whilst lying on his stomach. So it’s always best to check.
