For a start, you are assuming that these tricks can be done because they confer some particular survival benefit, when it may simply be that you have certain muscles that, incidentally, can be used to twitch your nose or ears.

I can type "FXFETFCCR" on this keyboard. What possible benefit does a keyboard designer gain by permitting me to type that?
