No never Wear out.

Hello Everybody,
Everyone has them, though if you ask people how they look..
most people wouldn’t be able to give you a clear answer.
And this time it’s about: Eyes.
Amber, blue, brown, gray, green, hazel or red.
Every eye seems to be different.
But how is that possible?
What finally decides the colour?
Well, the colour of the eye is to be found
in the genes of people.
Like everything of a human.
The weird thing about eye colour is that
it is determined by different genes.
Every gene with another colour.
Because every human has other genes,
if we don’t take twins into count,
meaning that every combination of genes
would lead to other colours of the eye.
Now, for if you wondered:
Beside your brains your eyes are the
most complex organs in you body.
This is due to the fact that the eyes have 2 million working parts.
This isn’t so weird if you think about how
many times a day the average person blinks..
Got a number in your head?
Well, it is 12 times a minute so 10,000 blinks a day.
Processing 36,00 bits of information every hour.
Beside this all you also have colour blind people.
This sounds pretty weird if you consider that
colour blind people certainly do see colours.
They only confuse the colours, mostly red and green.
Beside that.. sorry guys, 10 times more males got it than females.
Though men can read fine print better than women can.
But still people in general read 25% slower from
a computer screen that from paper.
Ow, and beside that.
Did you knew that the reason for getting a running nose when
you cry is because the tears from the eyes drain into the nose…
And it’s impossible to sneeze with your eyes open.
That you eyes don’t grow after your birth,
though you nose and ears never stop growing.
That the older we are the less tears we produce.
The older we are the less tears we produce.
And your eyes would never wear out,
Your eyes will never wear out..

      Thanks a lot.
      I’m just doing what I like to do.. write.
      No matter about who, what, where, how.. I like to write it down.
      Tho it you have suggestions about a subject that you would like to see in a post on my blog…
      Let me know and I’ll look into it.
      Mostly I ask my friends: First word on you mind is?…
      So if you’d like to write down a first word on you mind..
      Feel free :), everybody is free after all…
      Greetz, MMasing.

    Eyes are intriguing. What is also intriguing is how so many people couldn’t even tell you the eye colour of their partner, children, best friend…

    • MMasing / Jul 17 2011 10:28 am

      Agreed on that one.
      Eyes really are intriguing, and most eyes are also beautiful.
      And indeed, as I said
      “Everyone has them, tho if you ask people how they look..
      most people wouldn’t be able to give you a clear answer.”
      Which is quite weird if you think about it.
      Because if you talk to someone.. where do you look at?
      Not the mouth.. no, not the mouth, but the eyes.
      And then we don’t have a clue what they look like.
      It even took myself a while to describe my eyes to someone in a online chat conversation.
      Ow, and another weird thing..
      Ever wondered why you do tell people bad news,
      like you have a fight with your boyfriend.
      And then after you told that you never tell them that you made up with him.
      Ever thought about that?
      Well, never mind, my point was: Nice to know you liked it :).

    I love this, anatomy & poetry together<3

    Very thought provoking as the eyes show us the world, but even those blind can still imagine and picture life in their mind, metaphorical eyes in their own mind. So theoretically, the eyes truly never wear out.

    thanks for sharing! (:

      Thanks a lot, and how very right you are indeed.
      If you look at it the right way… eye will never wear out.
      I’m happy to share everything that pops up in my mind,
      if you ever have a subject that you’d want me to write about, please let me know.
      Thank you so much for commenting, and even more for subscribing to my blog.
      Means a lot to me.
      Hope that you’ll like my next posts.
      We’ll see :).

    Yet another great post 🙂
    The eyes are the gates to our soul, isn’t that what they say?
    they are so deep and detailed, hard to not dream away in someones eyes, well, depends on the situation ofcourse xD
    it’s so much to see, and then you got the little, almost, painting around the pupill which is amazing… :3
    and i think i could tell which color people i know have, brother brown, mom blue, dad brown, me blue, friend brown, friend blue, another friend blue, and another friend blue, my special person blue-gray and so on 😛 not so hard xD tho maybe i’m just studying their eyes abit more than usual… idk 😛

    well, again, thanks alot for a new nice post 🙂 can’t wait for more 😀

      Indeed, eyes are the gates to our soul, tho don’t trust on that blindly.
      Some souls might be heard to read by looking at someones eyes.
      And quite amazing that you can tell the colour of the eyes of people you know.
      Must mean or that you are a guy that likes detail.. or that you have a fetish with eyes? 😛
      Or maybe you just are one of the little people who actually don’t judge on the looks but on the inside, if you believe in the eyes being the gates to your soul, see?
      And you’re very welcome, more posts?
      Watch me :P.
      Greetz, MMasing.
