600,000 atoms

I listen to a lot of audiobooks on my drives to and from the city. If you haven't read "a short history of nearly everything," by bill bryson, I highly recommend it. He writes about every aspect of science, from astrophysics to paleontology, in a way that is so engaging and fascinating. You won't want to set this book down (or turn the cd player off in my case).

One interesting point he makes is that each of us contains approx 600,000 atoms that were once part of shakespeare, or jesus, or buddha, or picaso!

How's that for enlightenment?
