The 6 quarts of blood in the human body circulates through the body three times every minute. In one day, the blood travels a total ~12,000 miles – that’s nearly half the circumference of Earth. – WTF Fun Facts

Thank you GJ!
Blood absolutely does not travel hundreds of miles per hour. It travels three feet per second on leaving the heart, and then slows as it moves through smaller capillaries. That’s like just under two miles per hour, or forty nine miles per day.
Your heart is not a fucking jet engine.
