NOSES

Tom Miller pushed a peanut to the top of Pike's Peak (14,100 feet) using his nose in 4 days, 23 hours, 47 minutes and 3 seconds.

There are an estimated 5 million scent receptors in the human nose.

Our noses produce an estimated one to two pints of mucus a day.

Sneezing is called sternutation, and when you sternutate air rushes out your nose at a rate of 100 miles per hour!

A sneeze is a reflex that is triggered when nerve endings inside the mucous membrane of the nose are stimulated.
