supposedly, your soul weighs 21g.
scientists have studied corpses
and come up with theories
that when you die, a little electromagnetic matrix
escapes your lips never to be seen again.

that is to say, there is 21g of matter unaccounted for
in your feeble frame -
you can spend hours beefing up
or whittling down,
but it’s still there,
it’s still there
and you still can’t shift it.

when i die, i’m going to donate my body
to the earth on which i fall to my knees
but not my body as a whole:
i’ll choke out my last words,
and they’ll be damn good last words,
and you can bet that those words
will weigh exactly 21g.

"this baby came out of you but im not 100% sure its yours"

Funny thing - a woman who applied for welfare after her husband left her hadto supply DNA evidence he was actually the father. The results: he was definitely the father, but she wasn’t the mother. Her children were removed from her custody and she was sued for fraud, even though she insisted they were her children. 
Turns out, she wasn’t a surrogate or a kidnapper (the two most obvious explanations) - she was a chimera. As an embryo, she fused at a very early stage with her twin, forming one individual. Her ovaries apparently developed from cells that had originally belonged to her vanished twin. Later on more tests showed that while the woman’s skin and hair DNA did not match her childrens, DNA taken from her cervix did. 

WHAT THE FUCk

This went from stupid to really interesting in point 5 seconds.
