Do they float iniside our "blood blob inside our body" or they are connected to our muscles ?

They’re fastened together by blood vessels, nerves and most importantly, connective tissue, muscles and bones.

The same holds true for other organs in the body, although the skin and the brain are slightly different cases.

The brain does float around, albeit in the cerebrospinal fluid, and very rapid movements (like hitting the head) can cause the brain to clash against the skull, causing a concussion.

The skin is a muscle itself, connected to other muscles and tendons and is also supported by the skeleton.

    Dunno. Maybe it was because it seems like a silly question (the human blood is contained in arteries and veins which are surrounded by muscle tissue, but the question what really does hold organs in place is interesting nonetheless. // Some questions are off-topic, and our policy is to downvote and close them. Also, some answers don’t provide references or are straight out wrong, so that’s why you might encounter more downvotes. – Narusan Dec 3 '17 at 9:19

    @JonathanIrons most likely for lack of research. This is something easily found out, and trivial questions on every site tend to get downvoted. As one of the CM's puts it, "we are not trying to replicate google." – JohnP Dec 4 '17 at 13:47

    Also, Narusan, you managed to leave out the majority of the organs in the body. You missed the entire lower abdomen. – JohnP Dec 4 '17 at 13:48

    @JohnP Updated it. With hips & spine, I meant the pars lumbalis and cingulum membri pelvini provide support as bones, as well as the many muscles around / included in said organs. I tried not to go into too much detail since the OP didn’t seem to versed in medical slang etc. Also, clearing up the misconception that we had blood blobs inside our body seemed more important to me. // Also, I‘m not a native speaker and translating medical terminology is a pain, so sorry if „hips and spine“ was too broad. – Narusan Dec 4 '17 at 14:00
