    Last night, unexpectedly there was a TV program (UK on BBC4) where they dissected a human arm and hand, so of course I had to watch it, and it certainly improved & confirmed my own understanding of the thumb muscles as I am always trying to show pupils the muscles and structure to encourage them to develop an open hand. But never knew there’s a saddle joint at the base of the thumb.  Hadn’t realised that there are 2 finger tendons which reach to different tarsals and one splits around the other and peals off, interesting design. Fascinating to instrumentalists.  Take care of your hands…. !!

    All of Outland will protest that last thought and force meth into your veins!
