People say that you learn someting new everyday...and since i learnt something very interesting today, i wanted to tell you all and let you try it out for yourself...

so, i learnt today that when you are breathing through your nose, the majority of air is exhaled through one nostril. ohmy.gif

also, the nostril which does the majority of the breathing also changes every 20 mins

Now try it for yourself smile.gif

Deja vu's are glitches in the matrix when someone changes the programming!

Fact: I love the Matrix triology! happy.gif

I only mentioned deja vu's as I'm sure I've seen a thread like this before.

When one of your nostrils are blocked, the air doesn't bother taking that route.

If I put tissue paper on top of paper and use an ink pen on it and then put water on it it will go through the tissue paper and leave a nice effect on the paper underneath. Looks even better if there is already paint on the paper underneath.

the names of all the continents all start with vowels and the first and last letters are the same;

asia
europe
america
antartica
africa

(it only works if you don't count america as two continents though)

edit: also australasia (aka oceania)
