i'll let you know if it comes out in my turds
You know what the only thing worse than sweetcorn is? Mini sweetcorn.
I only had some because my auntie said it was well good barbecued
it wasn't! it just tasted like regular corn
sometimes sweetcorn can get lodged in the appendix and if you are particularly unhealthy and have a gut in bad condition i.e. motility, secretion and transition times are shot, the sweetcorn will remain in the pocket, not being broken down, attracting bacteria and causing infection.
I wanted to ask you earlier what makes your funny bone make you go funny?
The ulnar nerve runs over the elbow joint, quite close to the surface of the skin. So if you hit it at the correct angle it gets activated and "tingles" causing the funny-ness phenomenon. So yeah, its not really a bone, but rather a nerve passing over a joint between bones.
who said scientists dont have a sense of humour
Can you tell me a good way for me to remember which is the ulna and which is the radius please? When I talk about ulnar and radial loops in work (ie fingerprint patterns) I get them muddled up.
radials start on the side near your thumb so just think "RAD" whilst doing a thumbs up sign. Pretty lame but could work..
I always think RAD when I do the thumbs up sign anyway!
I like thinking up daft links like that :)
My memory is awful
SO I just did what this person has done: http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1323/548804473_19e3a75152.jpg
But ulnar always supplies the little finger, and radial is always towards thumb (well not really, but as a general rule you could adopt it)
That's you isn't it? 'this person'. Go on, admit it.
Please say you're a detective.
All they do is sit behind a computer screen all day updating crime reports and answering the phone.
I'm a crime scene examiner. I get to go out and find clues.
I hope you were counting those kernels on the way in shrewb
My motility is second to none
