2. Yes, it's well-tempered.
3. Yes. Great Scrabble word.
4. No.
5. No. Unless the other one is the Mamillia.

7. I think the mandible is upper jaw, so no.
8. Um. No?
9. Yes.
10. Yes.
11. Yes? I'm thinking tibia and fibula are the two lower leg bones.
12. Radius, ulna, humerus, which one ... no, the ulna is the lower arm. I think.

Let's see what's connected to my brain bone today.

I am even more out of my depth with this topic than most.

Is: 2, 3, 7, 9, 11
No: 1, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12

I might have taken human anatomy in high school if I didn't find the teacher so powerfully loathsome.

mhwitt said...

Glad to see that no one has taken the bet with "Antilles." It sounds like it could be the name of a bone though, and I applaud the the selection.

Michael5000 said...

OK, here's the deal:

1. Antilles: the heels -- Nobody even pretended to go for this one. Very disappointing.
2. Clavicle: the collarbone. Sure.
3. Coccyx: the tailbone. Yep.
4. Fatulum: the "top plate" of the cranium. Completely made it up.
5. Femillia: the smaller of the two bones of the lower leg. Yeah, made that one up too.
6. Hyoid: a free-floating bone in the neck that supports the base of the tongue. Yes!
7. Mandible: the lower jaw. Yes.
8. Ortial Plate: the back of the skull, attached to the top of the spinal column. Actually, I made that one up too.
9. Phalanges: bones of the fingers and toes. That one is true.
10. Sacrum: the back of the pelvis, attached to the spine and to the hip bones. Yep.
11. Tibia: the larger of the two bones of the lower leg. Yes.
12. Ulna: the bone of the upper arm. No, it's one of the bones of the lower arm.

No room for error in today's ultracompetitive Quiz environment. There were three perfect scores this time, so it all came down to timing:

The Calico Cat continues her recent romp, taking home her first Gold Star. It's only her second TQ Star, but her fifth piece of L&TM5K bling in only three week. Unprecidented.

d grabs the TQXXXI Silver Star; that's his second Silver and his fourth Star overall.

Phineas takes the Blue. It's his second and his sixth Star overall, which moves him into undisputed 7th place on the all-time Star acquisition list.

Well done, my friends!

Hmmm, why did the antilles never make it into my college level Human Anatomy text? Is it a non-human term?

Phineas said...

5 surgeries and an extensive history of orthopedic challenges provided the knowledge needed to garner undisputed 7th place. I hope a background of rare diseases or undue misfortunes is not required to find a way into 6th.
