i found a number of things watching fullmetal a second time around:
whenever someone(ed in pirticular) opened the gate they would be show vast amounts of knowledge at a fast rate. two things i found out by rewatcing each time. ed thought that what he was being show was all that was alchemy but because the gate lead to our world that was incorect. what ed was really being shown was our science and chimistry from the past and the near future. it took me a while to get that. another thing is when ed was first brought to the gate he saw images of the future of his world too. like for istancehe saw claude(the girl from episode 4) he saw him and his brother fighting and he saw when he got his silver watch.

You'll see that Ed is left-handed in episode 6 when he writes a letter to Winry. But in episode 1, when Ed writes down the transmution circle, you can see that he is right-handed. Which means he cannot write with his auto-mail arm.
I think Edo has learned to use both hands during the time that he did not have automail and the 1 year rehabilitation for the automail surgery (do you actually think Winry would make an automail that would not be able to write???). Edo is most likely ambidextrous.
-In the Majhal episode he uses a dinner knife with his left hand but a couple episodes later at Tucker's house you see him using the right hand for a dinner knife.
-Even though he was writing a letter with his left hand, in episode 5 when he was saving the train from Bard's group he drew an array with his right hand. Also at Tucker's place when he was testing Al with a question he was holding a pen/pencil with his right hand.

If you look carefully, in episode 29 (and probaly more) when Ed enters the gte you can see visions of a bunch of stuff from our world and theirs heres what I saw, theirs probaly a bunch more
Their world: him and al standing next to each other, lyra getting ready to do her alchemy, fletcher and his older brother (forgot his name, ed, al, and Den as children (and a puppy^^), more and more and more Ed and Al, that girl who stole eds automail leg in episode 16 I belive, <<her grandfather, Winry and Pinako's house, nina and alexander, wounded soilders, Roze, clause, the NIna/Alexander chimera, the train station, the DONT FORGET oct.??.?? (too lazy to check) Ed al and trisha holding hands for the last time (aw..well, their hands really)
as well as from our world: armies, dinasours, cavemen, angels, deer, volcaneos, famous drawings , famous wars, some Japanese people, the AMERICAN flag (weird, huh?) cars, ships, what looks to be ALIENS, mountains, a blossoming tree, the earth, a big city (new york i think), a sting ray, bacterie (ew),records (as in the thing before tapes and cd's), ok alot o Japanese people, dinasours, and american flags, a baby that looks like its still in the womb, planes, pictures of the aftermath of an earthquake, the first plane ever flew (and I think the Wright brothers)

Two things I notices the second time though - 1) In one of the early episodes it's King Bradley who encourages Al to seek the Philosopher's Stone 2) In episode 28, when Al thinks the print of a right hand in the sand is Ed's, it actually is! Ed didn't make the handprint, but it was his hand.

Hum, I noticed Izumi and her husband the first time around. But I don't know if this has been mentioned or not, but for me, it's not something I've seen, more like something I've heard. I the original japanese version, and I say this because what I am about to say does not apply to the english dubb, Roy calls Edward "Ed" only once....somebody back me up, because I'm almost a 100% it's true...half the time, he only calls him Fullmetal....This may be a little detail...but I tend to notice these types of things...On, and I don't remember the exact episode, but it's when Edward decides to go to Lior alone and leave Alphonse behind.
