  1. The level of melanin in your iris controls eye colour. Brown eyes contain more melanin (a dark pigment in the iris), while blue eyes have less. This enables blue collagen to show through. It is interesting enough to note that if you have blue eyes, you share a common ancestor with every other blue-eyed individual on earth. The first ever blue-eyed person lived sometime between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago. Before him, everybody had brown eyes.

These are just some of the amazing facts there are about the eyes which should give you enough reason to be thankful for them.

2. In 1977 a 37 year old man named Jerry Ehman was a voluntary researcher for Ohio State University’s now defunct Big Ear radio observatory. It was here that a giant telescope was scanning the skies on August 15. In those days, any information was processed through an IBM 1130 mainframe computer, printed onto some perforated paper and then examined by hand. It was by doing this that Ehman spotted something extraordinary – a vertical column with the alphanumerical sequence: ‘6EQUJ5’. Ehman grabbed a red pen and circled the sequence. In the margin he simply wrote ‘Wow!’.

More than three decades later, the Wow Signal is still the first and best potential evidence of communication with extra-terrestrials and it also remains one of the biggest mysteries in science. Over the years, Ehman and his colleagues have worked to rule out potential candidates of what the signal could’ve been sent from – such as satellites, aircrafts or ground-based transmitters on Earth. Although this is the case, it still hasn’t been proved the signal came from ‘aliens’.

The Wow Signal is one big open question.

3. A dog’s love towards his family is unconditional, and a classic example of this is the story of Hachiko, an Akita dog who was born in 1923 in Japan. He was adopted by an agricultural professor who took him home and took on the role as his new owner. Both of them formed a very special bond.

During their time together, the professor would take a train ride home each working day and be greeted by Hachiko at the train station. Hachiko would sit and wait for the professor at the end of each working day, without fail.

one day the professor suffered from a cerebral hemorrhage (brain bleed), and passed away, never to return to the train station again where his beloved companion was waiting.

For the next nine years, Hachiko attracted the attention of many people far and wide as each day, without fail, he would visit the train station as normal and wait for his owner.

Hachiko passed away in 1935, aged 11 years

Parliament

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.

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.
