how about this?

the distance from your elbow to your wrist (forearm) is the same length as your foot. (for the average person).

speaking of elbows...there are no nerve endings in the skin on the end of your elbow. you can feel pressue but not pain.

oh yeah, one last thing. yellow and blue make green! :toofunny: :getdown:

Do you know why?

Because if your eyes remained open, they litteraly would pop right out their sockets as the force is so great when your sneeze.

I'll dissagree with the bit about no nerves on the end of the elbow. I've got my arms completely sleeved and the elbows were one of the least pleasant places to get inked. Hurt like all hell. Theres two sensory nerves for the most part when dealing with skin, pain and pressure, if you can tell the difference between dull and sharp, ( a pin and a blunt object, you have +2 sensory, if you can only feel pressure, meaning you can tell something is touching you but can't tell whether it's dull or sharp, it's +1 sensory. At least thats what the norm has been in my 10+ years of seeing sick-call. just my .02

i am not talking about in the elbow or skin on it but the outermost part of skin of the elbow. you were probably feeling the nerves around the bone etc. (i guess)...you can test it out though. extend your arm, grab the loose skin on the elbow and squeeze as hard as you possibly can. you feel pressure, but no pain... :smile:

If I squeeze hard enough I feel pain, but the same goes for the skin over my knees.....or any other bony prominence for that matter. I think that has more to do with those areas being high stressed/worn/rough than anything, as opposed to say....your sides or face. Regardless.

It's also impossible to lick your own elbow.

How many of you just actually tried to lick your elbow? When you couldn't get one did you try the other?
