    I’m actually blown away at what the human body can do.

    Hey folks, just in case you live under a rock, here's a reminder that everyone's body is very unique and also very different. In fact, some people have parts of their bodies that are SO unique and different that they feel inclined to share them with the world. And that's where r/mildlyinteresting comes in!
