Those are neat. They would have been neater still, though, if several of them hadn't been redundant. I count six of the twenty that are completely redundant (they all have to do with the number of base pairs.)

I am impressed with the one that about all of a person's DNA streching to the sun and back 600 times. That really gets your attention.

You'd think it's all about a few organs, some blood and air, and skeleton and skin to hold it all together. But no, there seems to be a little more to us than just that.

They say humans and chimps are 98% alike. I'd like to know the percentage of humans and say...dolphins.
