My friend recently told me this fun fact: Your skeleton has always been wet.

@swift @benhamill

The marrow is the juicy part. White blood cells get made there. There's not just blood all around the bones, there's blood cells inside the bones, too.

There's a reason folks talk about bones getting a lot lighter and more brittle when they're dried out.

@yam655 @benhamill I actually wasn't sure that there was blood all around the bones! But yeah, marrow and the whole "making blood cells" thing are pretty solid arguments 😁
