Greetings Infomaniacs,

We had quite a night last night, didn't we? Pretty much the entire country was sweating for one reason or another. And no matter who you voted for there is one thing I think we can all agree on; the next four years aren't going to be boring!

And speaking of sweating...

Enjoy!

RANDOM TIDBITS

Sweating from stress and sweating to cool down are chemically different. When you sweat because you're hot, it comes from your eccrine glands, but when you sweat because you're stressed, it comes from your apocrine glands.

***

You have between 2 and 4 million sweat glands in your body. Your feet alone have about 250,000 sweat glands between them.

***

The name for absent sweating (or not sweating at all) is anhidrosis, which is dangerous because your body can overheat.

***

The more in shape you are, the more quickly and profusely your body will sweat. It does this to cool itself down so you can work out at a greater intensity for a longer period of time.

***

Sweat has a stinky reputation, but sweat itself doesn't actually smell. The odor comes from the bacteria on your skin instead.

***

Hippos' sweat is red. The colored pigment both acts a sunscreen and kills bacteria.
