In life sometimes there are things that on the surface may not seem to go together or have any apparent connection, but if you dig a bit deeper you’ll see just how connected they truly are. Whether it’s an odd food pairing, etc there are connections that exist that go beyond our basic comprehension, such as the relationship between teeth and hand dominance. “Roughly 90% of humans are right-handed and this is one of the traits that separates us from most other primates who don’t really show any overall preference for left or right handedness.
