I don't know if this will get people out of Facebook, but I found it interesting.  :)

That is a pretty cool article.   I hadn't heard the one about the plantaris muscle before.  This part is sweet:

"Humans have this muscle as well, but it is now so underdeveloped that it is often taken out by doctors when they need tissue for reconstruction in other parts of the body. The muscle is so unimportant to the human body that 9% of humans are now born without it."

I'm not as sure about the next one about wisdom teeth - although it's common to claim that our jaws have been evolving to be smaller, I still never hear a compelling case for what the selective pressure for why this might be. 

The eyelid one is freaky, too, I'd never heard about that either!
