CRAP !!
the human body has over 2 million sweat glands.
if subjected to strenuous activity, the human body can produce up to three gallons of sweat in a 24-hour period. sweat is basically odorless; when it comes into contact with bacteria on the skin, a foul odor is emitted. those fumes compel americans to buy about $750 million worth of antiperspirants and deodorants every year.

thanks lt.

did you know that the first of a type of u.s. warships gives it's name to the class. such as the first of the triton class submarines was named the SSRN-586 Triton.

i believe the nautilus was a prototype, so it was the only one of the nautilus class.
