5 Facts That Will Make You Look at Your Body Differently

, , , ,

Despite its flaws (we’re looking at you, Carl), the human body is rather amazing. A brain that surpasses the fastest super computer by orders of magnitude, bi-pedal locomotion (good luck with that, robots) and adaptive healing powers make our forebears look like lowly, single-celled organisms. Which they were, of course. But that’s another story.

This week’s episode of #5facts delves into the astounding human organism. Special thanks to the cast of Syfy’s Being Human, which kicked off its fourth season this week. We had a blast shooting with actors Sam Witwer, Sam Huntington, Meaghan Rath and Kristen Hager. Follow them on Twitter, and tune in Mondays at 9 p.m. ET for new episodes.
