The lower joint of a femur, pretty much impossible to break with a hammer, yet hollow bones will break with a brick, slab of concrete or a hammer. Imagine a bit of concrete the size of a bone, it would break easily... Wouldn't it?

    IIRC, that's only if the bone is upright. I remember watching some science video where they showed a thigh bone supporting the weight of a small motorcycle, but it was end on end. Length wise it's not as strong...

      Somehow, this does not surprise me.

        -I learned that the lost city of Ubar actually did exist. Apparently the residents kept pumping the groundwater out of the spring until the limestone shelf collapsed (without the water to help support it) and the city was promptly swallowed up by the desert ~1,500 years ago.

        -Las Vegas essentially paid for the Drop 2 reservoir in California.

            Turning a clock's hands counterclockwise while setting it is not necessarily harmful. It is only damaging when the timepiece contains a chiming mechanism.

              MD, mama used to tell me it's bad luck, though.

              D2 (Happy Birthday, honey)...peeps are frogs. You can eat feed corn (not cow corn!) but it's gonna hurt your stomach...its really not reccommended. You're too far north for me to advise on the seasons, but I told you that we have four. Hot then hot AND humid are two different seasons.

                I learned that it is amazing what behaviors you can get used to from other people....Something that would have shocked me 10 years ago, now simply makes me shake my head. We had some kid run a red light @ an esitmated 130mph the other night, and I wasn't a bit surprised when I found out it was a riced out Honda Civic.

                  No, believe me, I'm from the heart of cattle country and cattle feed lots, you never get used to it. However on days when the weather cooperates, it will be "less" noticeable.

                    The lemon slice on your glass of ice tea was originally used to disinfect the edge of the glass where it would meet your lips. You moved it around the outer rim of the glass. The lemon kills bacteria.

                      We, in Iowa, call that "steak on the hoof smell".

                          I learned AGAIN that halcion and whatever else they gave me today will allow me to walk and talk, but apparently I've been doing rather strange things since surgery. I have no memory of the surgery this morning, but I *can* clean the house. Husband keeps finding me up and about when apparently I'm suppose to be laying down.

                              I learned how to make decaf tea from caffeinated tea, thanks to my naturopath. He gave the example of green tea, which is really good for you. Use one heaping teaspoon of green tea or one teabag per cup. Let it steep in hot water for one minute, where most of the caffeine will come out into the water. Then start over with the same tea in fresh hot water. The second cup will be virtually caffeine-free.

                              I don't know HOW it works, but being someone who shouldn't have much caffeine (recently quit eating the coffee beans :P), that's okay. It just needs TO work.
