It's all in the oxytocin

Dave's World is a majestic place where Dave Moore delights us with facts and stats he has gathered on the interweb.

This time round, Dave taught us how a 20 second hug releases enough oxytocin to make people trust you more.

Oxytocin is a peptide hormone and neuropeptide that plays a role in social bonding. Now you know how to fast track people's trust.

He also reveals the way an astronaut scratches their nose whilst in a spacesuit, why eating lobster was once a form of torture and the most impressive feature in a British Army tank.

Good man Daithí!
