    Don't mid us - we're fine. Anything that makes you laugh works for us - doesn't matter what label you use. :cool:

    "Laugh and world laughs with you ... cry and you cry alone." Laughter is a great facial muscle developer and as such a boon to the brass player. Once upon a time I wished I was a clown that could cause others to laugh, instead at times I have thought I'm a buffoon by the foolish things I've done.

    at first I thought the theasurus was an Aussie dinosaur -- but I was wrong -- it was for finding words. ROFL ROFL ROFL

    "Theasurus" no not one of the Aussie dinosaurs - but there are a few, and more previously unknown ones being unearthed regularly.

    The reflex you should get if your doctor hits your ulner nerve with the little rubber hammer is to slap them silly. THAT WOULD HURT! What we doctors tap with that little rubber hammer is the muscle belly supplied by nerves which triggers a lower spinal neuronal pathway leading to that muscle group jerk, which is known as a reflex. It should be painless.

    Yeah, I read about the Tedosaurus--decorum prevents me from giving more details....

    .... of course it's full name is the Tedotrumposaurus Aeronauticum, but I'm not sure I have the correct Latin spelling - it's been years since I studied any Latin.

    In Germany they have J├Ągerlatein which is still in use in America by fisherman describing the one who got away. It is also seen being used by certain trumpet players. By all means we should ban its export to Australia--they might then become unstoppable!

    Durn right it would hurt, but I might be charged with murder if a Doc struck me there.

    Ain't much a Doc has done to me in my life that I did enjoy unless I was anesthetized or somehow sedated. I don't like most exam types I've endured. I'm impatient just sitting (or laying) and waiting to get whatever behind me.

    Still, it was amazing how most students in the EMT class I took kept from laughing when a student approached the skeleton to point to a "funny bone". Its called a choked laugh to keep from revealing the joke, and best accomplished with a plain facial expression.
    Still, I ponder how many others really expected him to point to the "funny bone". I did surmise the instructor had a propensity to ask trick questions, which I subsequently learned is a good interrogation technique ... which even at times a Doctor is not remiss to use I've discerned. Yeah, the truth is that the pain a patient has is always in their mind, but their sense from there is that the cause may be elsewhere.
