According to Penguin Books these are fact about the human body:

2.Your ears never stop growing. This is confusing because the more you grow is the more you develop hearing disabilities! (crazy right?)
3.Earwax is known to be a type of sweat!
4.You are taller in the morning. As we all know we have cartilage in our bones, so it gets compressed during the day making you shorter than you were in the morning!
5.Your body has more than 600 muscles; the weakest one is called the stapedius muscle, located in the middle of your ear.
6.Fingernails grow faster than the toenails; I guess that's why we focus too much on the fingers than toes right?

8.Same as the ears, the nose never stops growing!
