Whats your resting heart rate?

I thought this might be interesting since there are so many athletes here.

I've got 44 beats per minute. How about you?

Chuck Norris doesn't have a heart. His veins pulse of their own accord.

Chuck Norris does not drive an Accord. He just thinks of where he wants to be and it comes to him. Also, Chuck Norris does not have a pulse. He died 7 years ago but Death is afraid to tell him.

Chuck Norris does not sleep. He waits.

Chuck Norris can slam a revolving door.

Chuck Norris counted to infinity - twice.

There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of creatures Chuck Norris has allowed to live.

Pfft. Chuck once got in a fight with the Monster, and he did a burnout on his face with the sole of his shoe mid-roundhouse kick. Then he ate him.

mine was 110 before i started biking. 'twas one of the reasons i started in the first place, as thats unhealthy for most but terrible for a 24yr old. now when resting its in the 80's, at this very moment it's in the high 90's, didn't get much sleep and have been pounding the coffee.

56 at the moment. Will probably be lower in the summer.

A few years ago, I was turned away from donating blood because my heart rate was too low. ??? iirc, it was in the mid-40's.
