trivia tuesday

ok, here are the rules:



you can answer by leaving a comment. i will keep them hidden and will post the correct answers along with the correct answerer no later than wednesday morning. please don't cheat...go by what you know, not by what the internet knows. no prizes now, but maybe somday. and, now, for today's trivia...





the theme: the human body



1. about how many bones are babies born with? 300



2. how many bones remain in an average adult? 206



3. on average, how many words to women say per day? 7,000



4. what about men? 2,000



5. what percentage of the world's population is left-handed? 10%



6. Laughing lowers levels of stress hormones and strengthens the immune system.



How many times a day does the average six-year-old laugh ? 300



7. what about adults? 15-20 (sad, but apparently true)


8. when performing CPR, what is the current recommended compression-to-breathing ratio? currently it is 30:2


9. if you are caring for a child and you find said child unresponsive, not breathing, no heartbeat, what is currently the recommended FIRST thing you should do? sort of a tricky question...the first thing you should do is perform 2(ish) minutes of CPR followed by a call to 911 followed by continuing CPR until help arrives. if you were to find an adult unresponsive, not breathing, with no pulse, you would want to call 911 first. this is because in adults the problem is most likely cardiac...while in children the problem most likely was respiratory first. (children do not usually suffer from heart attacks, etc)



10. how often does the average human blink? every 4 seconds(ish)


**ok, we're going to call it a toss-up between the only two who played today. good job girls!
