    Ummmm...You actually need your appendix. It houses very beneficial bacteria in your body. It also helps with build up your immunity. Will you die if it's removed? No. Of course not. But without an appendix, you will have higher rates of infection, and it will take you longer to recover from illnesses. Don't believe me? http://time.com/4631305/appendicitis-appendix-gut-bacteria/

    If our liver can almost completely regenerate why is it that we can’t regenerate limbs or skin that’s badly burned

    Because of how we choose "mates", some parts like the gallbladder or appendix will probably never be weaned out through evolution

    Why is it 50-90% live normally afterwards. How can your margin of error be 40%? It's like saying I ran the 100m in 14 seconds, but it might've been 8 seconds

    Any organ in our body is necessary. This video is total crap. Anyways even if we can live without any of these organs mentioned. We still have to face the fact that we will endure severe trauma and pain for the rest of our lives.

    My mother had to have her gallbladder removed for a non-gallstone problem. She has a huge dark scar across her entire abdomen. Pretty gnarly?

    I'm quite certain that if you had one lung, hiccups wouldn't be a problem be cause hiccups are from the two lungs getting out of sync.

    you don't need your skin to live

  • sophyaa Speserrr - 1 week ago

    This title is a bit Misleading, you can’t live without both lungs and, you can’t really live without a full brain... totally live comfortably without a stomach so it’s kinda necessary, plus it’s nice to have a whole spleen so in reality you need at lest half of each of these, so saying you can totally live without... meh, not really. But it got me here so it did its job hahaha

    Half of anything isn't what I consider "total"
