- Tomatoes are part of the night shade family. So are potatoes

- The Komodo Dragon is the world's largest living lizard

- Mr. Ed the Talking Horse was made to look as though he were talking by having peanut butter put in his mouth. Also, he was a she. The part was played by a mare.

    So are bell peppers. Digesting night shades uses up calcium, which is why cheese is frequently paired with these foods.

    The Hooded Pitohui is a songbird of New Guinea with black and orange plumage.

    This species and its two close relatives, the Variable Pitohui and the Brown Pitohui, were the first documented poisonous birds. A neurotoxin called homobatrachotoxin found in the birds' skin and feathers, causes numbness and tingling in those touching the bird.

    A hypnic or hypnagogic jerk is an involuntary muscle twitch (commonly known as a myoclonic twitch) which occurs during the transition into hypnagogia. It is often described as an electric shock or falling sensation, and can cause movement of the body in bed. Hypnic jerks are experienced by most people, especially when exhausted or sleeping uncomfortably.

    I read someplace that it's because the body feels like it's dying (loss of control due to loss of consciousness) and so it twitches to tell the brain that something is wrong.

    I get those twitches all the time when I am well and truly stoned. Which is pretty rare.

    I've heard that too but I understand it is one of many theories and there isn't a definitive reason why humans do it. I've heard some theorise that it dates back to when we slept in trees and it was a reaction to stop us falling out.
