One of the bizarre things the human body performs is known as “cutis anserine,” which is the scientific term for it?

A heavy vomit

Silent Fart

Hiccups

Goosebumps

Goosebumps
Cutis anserine, or goosebumps, are a curious vestigial trait of humans. Goosebumps appear when the pilomotor reflex is activated, and the small muscle at the base of a hair follicle contracts, drawing every hair upright. Originally, this was utilized by birds and animals to keep warm or puff up in order to deter predators from approaching.

Where on your body would you need to dab a towel to dry your philtrum if it was wet?

About 2.5%

About 16%

About 33%

About 50%

About 33%
Your body has 300 bones when you’re born, but by the time you’re completely grown, you’ll only have 206. This is because numerous little bones that are similar to soft cartilage when you’re a newborn will ultimately fuse together to become larger single bones. A baby’s pliable, tiny bones make it easier for them to pass through the birth canal.

7%

15%

30%
