The human body has four types of movable joints. Most people don’t really think about them unless they start to become painful. In fact, their motion is really quite beautiful, but that beauty can be hard to appreciate because we usually can’t see how the bones are sliding around relative to one another.
X-rays provide a window inside the body, but they are most often static images that don’t depict movement. However, Cameron Drake of San Francisco has created a collection of magnificent images showing joints in motion. He was aided by orthopedic physician Dr. Noah Weiss and the finished product is completely amazing. If you’d like to know more about the project, please check out Drake’s blog.

This is kind of sad because none of these images represent how my joints function*. Shoulder junked from football. Elbow junked from door frame. Knee junked from ninth grade gym class. Hand junked from fifth grade gym class. Ankle junked from Summer camp.
If there’s one bit of advice I can give you kids it’s this:
Stay inside. Read comic books. Surf the internet.

I scrolled past this at first and then I thought about it and I realized what it means
what does it mean?
It means do you need someone for the sake of not feeling alone and or sad or do you want me because you actually love me, not solely on comfort and fear but you actually want me.
Thank you ^^^^
