Potatoes are still alive - weird observation

Ok, so we go to the store
we buy potatoes and they look
like this generally... right?
Then they sit in the cupboard
and if you don't use them in
time they start to look like this...

I was thinking about this. Potatoes are not like other vegetables.... they are still alive. they are sitting there in your cupboard and they still grow. And what is even more interesting is they do it without light, and without soil. So they just grow roots from themselves. How fascinating isn't it. could you imagine if we got put into a closet and left there and came out with a new leg or arm.
