    I actually saw a documentary long ago about this! If I recall correctly, they were looking at cows, and discovered that they had different 'dialects' so maybe not!? Good question

    Funny you say that because I'm using new grey sheets at the moment and I'm always itchy! Even looks like ezcma on my wrists, and I've never had it in my life!!
    Wow better be throwing those sheets out!

    I have often wondered why we have evolved with our nostrils pointing toward our mouth.

    Knowing that the nostrils can expel contaminants (and boogers!) by 'sneezing', why would they point straight to a second entry point??

    Very interesting thread so I'm subbing

    Little fact regarding birds, they roost mainly. The foot of a bird wraps around the branch eg, some toes forward and some back so they don't fall off, this is actually their muscles in a relaxed position, they have to tense their muscles to release the branch as such.. This stops them from toppling out of the tree once asleep!

    Hope that made sense!

    If you snipped the short hair on your arm, (not actually removing the whole hair, just cutting at the halfway point) how/why does it grow back to it's original length?But if you left it alone and did not ever cut it it would just remain the same length? How does the hair know that it has been cut and proceed to grow and then stop at a certain length??? The hair on your head continues to grow all the time, from the root, but the hair on your arm stops at a certain length... until you cut the tip off, it grows again???

    How considerate and sweet of you! I love it. I can't stand to kill bugs, I always pick them up and place them outdoors, but ants just seem so insignificant... poor 'lil buggers!
