Kilts are not the ONLY form of unbifurbicated clothing worn by men around the world. Robes, sarongs, cassocks, and caftan's are all examples still in use today. (There's at least a dozen more obscure ones too)

I am so going to try this tomorrow night when I make dinner! I usually wear contacts and have never had problems with onions but recently I switched to glasses (doc's orders) and it has been a pia! My eyes actually feel on fire now when I cut onions and I have to flush them with saline. I do also taste the onion in my throat so I think this chewing gum thing may interfere with that part of it. Hmmm...we'll see!

Mythbusters disproved the 8 fold theory as did a high school student for a science fair. Now, granted, most of us don't have airplane hangers and bobcats for folding paper . . .
Pirates' eye patch

Pirates often wore eye patches to quickly adjust their vision from a lit room to a dark seashore, they would just switch the eye the patch was on. Our eyes adjust to the light independently.

Interesting facts about Sharks

This is a good one to remember for where I am from here in Hawaii!!! Cows kill more people than Sharks. About 10 humans are killed by Sharks every year but nearly 100 people die each year from being stepped on by cows.
