I can just imagine doing to the ER and sitting on a guerney..

Dr- 'What is your injury?'

Patient - 'I fell off the toilet'

Imagine the reaction the patient would get. I reckon half or more than half of those people would have to have been drunk at the time of the injury!

I don't know why but...I am picturing the toilet seat injuries as mostly little fellows learning how to pee standing up and then having the toilet seat fall down.....ouch....I don't know I know my 4 year old likes showing off how he can pee with no hands. Well, he can't!

But, I mean, how else can you get injured unless you get your head stuck in the bowl after a night of wayyyyy toooo much drinking. Or bust a tooth smacking your mouth on the side? Or end up with a fat lip? Okay....you'd think I've been there but, honestly,I haven't

Well, I'll be darned, I make up only 7% of the population....I feel soooo alone.

Sorry to get off the riveting toilet discussion, but....

2. Alfred Hitchcock didn't have a bellybutton.
Isn't that physically impossible? He wasn't a test tube baby, so he had to be attached via umbilical cord to his mother, right???

Back to our originally scheduled program...

I wondered about that, how can you be born without a belly button?
post #8 of 17
hmmmm....a mystery, we'll have to call in his sidekick!!!! :LOL:

It doesn't say he was born without one though...it just says he didn't have one so, question is: What happened to it????????
post #9 of 17
He had it surgically removed?
Or was it cos he was so portly that no one could see it and they assumed that he didnt have one?
post #10 of 17
I looked it up...

Did Hitchcock have a belly button?
Believe it or not but I get this question all the time. Answer: Hitchcock being a mamal had to be born with a belly button, its just how it is for us mamals. Apparently Hitchcock had several opperations in the belly area leading his doctors to sow up the bb, but I have never read this from a credible printed source. I suspect its an bizarre urban legend.

The kitty army stole his belly button in order to advance kitty science. Mystery solved :tounge2:

*raises eyebrows*

And what exactly would the kitty army do to the belly button?

I have already said, to advance kitty science.

You see if I tell what it will be used for we'd have to tie you up in yarn to stop you spreading the word.

Belly Buttons are useful for many things.

I have to add my few penny's worth . . . babies don't have kneecaps until between 2 and 6 YEARS old?????

As kids, both me and my brother regularly fell over, and I remember the pain of smacking my knee on the deck (bone under the knee = kneecap = pain). I also remember helping to dress my brother's knee after he did the same. We were both easily under 6 years of age then.

2 and 6 MONTHS maybe . . .

Anatomists and Paediatricians out there please advise!!!

I wondered about that....I am trying to find info about babies knee caps...actually I just remembered I have a forensic anthropology book...

There is a picture of a baby skeleton and when I looked at the knees, none of the epiphyseal bones are fused together yet, so it looks as if they have no kneecaps. That is how a forensic anthropologist would tell the age of the skeleton amongst other things, by the fusion of the bones.
