You aren't who you think you are...

In the midst of the research I'm doing for my Water Class term paper, I ran across this fact:

Humans actually contain about 10 times more bacterial cells in their bodies than they do human cells. [source (pdf)]

It's ... gross and intriguing and humbling and shocking and ... I think my favorite science tidbit of the decade.

Ok, back to work now!
