comment Does red light preserve your night vision?
I looked up photochromatic step, but I'm not sure what I'm looking for, do you have some link to whatever you're talking about?

comment Can a human smell through the ears?
do you mean "are there olfactory receptors in the ears" or "can smelly things make their way through our ears to the nose". Cause in the second case, the eardrum is in the way.

comment Height and natural selection in humans?
I'm somewhat skeptical of the assumption that attractiveness is correlated with number of offspring (to the extent that any substantive selection will take place).

comment Does red light preserve your night vision?
@anixx, the point it that there's a lot more going on in your visual perception than the raw inputs from photoreceptors, ranging from temporal distortions to geometric reconstruction, it's hard to say definitively that you have no color blindness.

comment Why have humans evolved much more quickly than other animals?
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bifurcation_theory, think of genetics as the parameters, nukes, computers, and space travel as variables. There's no reason to believe we're evolving "faster" in a genetic sense.

comment Why would diffusion be faster across a non-specialised tissue?
I think surface area is by far the dominant factor: the medical recommendation doesn't say you shouldn't swallow the tablet, only that you should chew it first. A well chewed anything is digested faster than an unchewed anything.
