Today's evolutionary moment: I can breathe with my nose but not my mouth, but I can't breathe with my mouth and not my nose.  What's up with that?  (Bonus points: why can't I breathe with only one nostril at a time?)

Surely you can do those things with help from your hand. What's up is that there's no advantage in your nose to being able to open and close itself. A mouth without this ability would be terrible at biting and chewing. What am I missing?
