Can you carry a pillow on a plane?

Talking in your sleep is known as somniloquy.

Sleep talking is scientifically known as somniloquy. Much like sleepwalking and sleep paralysis, it is a parasomnia. It’s not really a serious condition, but it can be treated and avoided.


Carrots give you night vision.

It would be awesome if this was true, but while carrots are good for your sight, they aren’t that good.

The benefits of carrots come in the form of carotene, which the body uses to make vitamin A. Vitamin A enables the eye to convert light into a signal that can be sent to the brain, allowing for overall improved vision in settings with reduced light. The only catch is that Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin, which means it needs to be consumed with fat to allow for absorption and for true health benefits to be felt. Most studies have found ingesting vitamin A supplements have proven to be more effective that just consuming large amounts of carrots.
