Holy catfish!!!!! It has been YEARS since I thought about many of these but, astoundingly, I scored 100%. Guess all the years I lived with my physician daddy must've allowed me to absorb more than I realized.

I used to be able to name all the 206 bones in the human body but, alas, my brain is now mush. I, however, after having had my right hand surgically reconfigured last summer, only have 205 bones. The doc removed my trapezium bone and replaced it with a rolled-up ligament. Sounds bizarre, but it's as if nothing ever happened.

Like many others, I have stubbed the "hall" out of my hallux, though.
