or Nutty Scientists Federation

But to be a good scientist you have to think in a nutty way sometimes.

Did you know that a human has approximately the same number of hair follicles as most other apes?

(At least they do to start with. If you are going bald, that's a different story.)

Did you know that cowboys don't wear those fringy leather strips hanging off the sleeves and backs of their jackets as a fashion statement and that they are actually there to wick moisture away when they get wet?

Least, that's what they told me, and I was not about to argue.

Did you know 13% of people are left-handed?
In medieval times, left-handed people could not become knights because it was thought that they were descendants of the devil, it is said. Spiral staircases in castles ran clockwise to allow knights – all right-handed – to battle intruders effectively.

Is the same reason to ride on the left hand side of the path, in order to battle effectively.
This was not applied to jousting.
