# How Many Times Can You Wrap You Veins Around The Earth If You Took Them Out Of You Body?

According to MSN Encarta, the total length of all the veins in the human body are about 60,000 miles and can wrap around the earth 2 1/2 times.

Actually you should do the math cause perimeter is diameter times 3.14
7928times3.14=24893.92 and if you multiply that by 2.5 times around you get 62234.8 which is pretty close to 60000

Actually you are wrong... The diameter has nothing to do with it... That would be a straight line from one side to the other.... So actually she does not need to do mad badly.... Because you want the circumference NOT the diameter.. The circumference of the earth at the equator is 24,902 mi (that is going around the object NOT straight through it and if you take 60,000 and divide that by the circumference (24,902) you get 2.4 WHICH IS ALMOST 2 AND A HALF TIMES..... U need schooling badly!!!
