      Ever – I guess that food can be cooked – I find that really interesting that people decided to combine random ingredients together and found it worked – I think that’s pretty cool.

      That the structure of DNA is a double, right-handed helix.

      Its such an elegant shape and its discovery is probably the closest we will ever get to “the meaning of life”.

      When I was young, I discovered that I could wiggle my ears. That’s pretty cool considering that only 10-20 percent of the population can voluntarily control the muscles that are responsible for that! And I didn’t even have to practise! 🙂
