Holy shit our lungs are crazy

these are doing this inside you right now
This gifset reminded me to breath, thanks.

Correction! Your lungs aren’t doing this inside you right now because your lungs never fully deflate. Well, they might if you puncture them but that’s a bad idea so try to avoid that.
Anyway, your lungs are attached to your rib cage by this thing called the Pleural Sac. The pleural sac surrounds the lungs and is attached to the ribcage, preventing the lungs from shrinking into the sad red lumps pictured above. The air remaining inside your lungs after you’ve exhaled as much as you can is called the Reserve Volume. It’s important to have the reserve volume as it allows continuous gas exchange with your bloodstream, so you always are able to get oxygen into the bloodstream and remove carbon dioxide from it, even when you breathe out.
JEFFY YOU ARE SO SMRT I LOVE YOU
