You're Being Violated 100 Trillion Times Per Second

That's right. This very second you have been penetrated by the deep reaches of space.

Non-charged particles called neutrinos are being fired through the emptiness of space from the sun, supernovas, and remnants of the big bang. These particles are traveling nearly the speed of light and basically unstoppable. They are so small that they travel right through anything in its path. Including your body.

Every single second 65,000,000 of those little buggers travel through every inch of your body tallying up to about 100,000,000,000,000 every single second passing right through you like some late night Taco Bell.

That's a trillion trillion of them passing through you in your life time. If you were to tally up every single one of those and collect them through your life it would weigh about 0.15 grams.
