2. Peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite
An oil is extracted from peanuts and it is used in the process of making glycerol. Now this is where things begin to get interesting. Glycerol is one of the main ingredient in nitroglycerin. For those who don’t know what nitroglycerin is, it’s an extremely unstable explosive.



3. In England the speaker of the house is not allowed to speak.

The speaker in the House of Commons is the chairman. His/her role is to keep the debate flowing and to make sure that the rules are followed. The speaker is supposed to be impartial, even though he/she is a member of one of the political parties, and so they do not get to give their own opinions on the debate.

4. Racecar and Kyak they are read lefty to right or right to left.
They are all palindromes!

A word, phrase, or sentence that can be read forward or backward. Palindrome may also refer to numbers (like dates) read forward and backward.

Scientists and archeologists have discovered palindromes in ancient Sanskrit through Tamil poetry through English lords and ladies.



5. When we breathe through our nose, we always inhale more air from one nostril than with the other one 

 85% of humans only breathe out of one nostril at a time.  Even more interesting is that the pattern of switching from breathing out of one nostril to the other happens in a cyclical fashion, with about four hours or so between each switch typically; although, this can vary from person to person and vary based on your body position or nasal congestion.

Even more interesting is that depending on which nostril you are predominately breathing out of at any given moment, it seems to greatly affect your body and brain.

For instance, a study in 1988 showed that breathing through your right nostril significantly increases blood glucose levels, while breathing through your left nostril has the opposite effect.  It is speculated from this that abnormal nasal cycles, such as breathing through your right nostril for many years without a switch, may be one contributing factor in certain cases of diabetes.

Another study in 1993 showed that when you are breathing through your right nostril, you will use significantly more oxygen than when breathing through your left.

Most interestingly of all, yet another study published in 1994, showed that when you are breathing through your left nostril, the right hemisphere of your brain will be more active or dominant and vice-verse when you are breathing through your right nostril.
