    You only breathe out of one side of your nose at a time.

     

     

     

    I don't know about breathing in, but a simple mirror test proves that this isn't true for breathing out.

     

    MTA: okay, further reading suggests this nasal cycle thing is true for ~80% of population. So maybe I'm the freak. Then again, I have six fingers on my left hand. So...yeah.

        Chickens have ears?

             She would have red ears.  That's the Araucana breed that the ear rule doesn't apply to.

                    The statement "In God We Trust" was added to the $5 bill in 1964. The phrase that was previously featured on $5 bills, "Will Pay To The Bearer On Demand," was also removed and replaced with "This Note Is Legal Tender For All Debts Public and Private."

                     

                    My sister has a $5 bill from her birth year, that has the old statement.

                            At a hockey game the spare pucks are kept frozen.  Once pucks warm up, they bounce around.  Every so often the ref will switch the game puck out for a frozen one and stick the warm one back in the bucket full of shaved ice if it hasn't gone over the glass and into the crowd.
