Was just searching on the internet to check I wasn't dying or anything, and I found some interesting info:

Clams have the slowest heartbeats of all God's creatures, varying from 2 beats per minute for a clam en repos to 20 for a clam in a state of extreme nervous excitement.

In one famous, if rather grisly, experiment, a team of researchers in Utah in 1939 took an electrocardiogram of a man about to be executed by a firing squad. His heartbeat increased from 72 to 180 just before the shots were fired. Afterward, of course, the rate dropped sharply.

Since the solar year consists of 525,948 minutes and 48 seconds, a quick calculation at the rate of 80 BPM gives us a ballpark figure of 42,075,904 beats per year, give or take a couple mill. A reasonable estimate for the number of heartbeats in a lifetime is about three billion.

I'm the same, but it's really strong on my neck.
And I have a really strong artery on the squidgey bit on my right thumb. Sounds wierd I know, in fact I can even see it beat there sometimes

That is a relief! I couldnt feel my pulse and eventually I concentrated really hard and I have a feeling I just 'imagined' my pulse (if you can ever do that, that is!!)

Lol yeah... that's wierd, it's as if you're counting it and it's so steady that your brain kinda kicks in and fills in the ones you can't feel.

I'm still measuring my pulse, it keeps changing whenever I do it, lol.
