I thought I'd bump this very old thread of mine because this is a very little used corner of MN that others may not know about, yet it is quite interesting what info you can glean from old threads here.

Today I learnt that in addition to the No. 1 details about the appendix, that doctors are now considering a dose of antibiotics to deal with appendicitis and believe that appendectomy may become a thing of the past.

No.14 was about eyelash mites. Yuck.

No.16 was about our sensory tally, we have more than five senses. Shut your eyes and now touch your nose... Now tell me what sense you used...
