yaay, three arms

Oh, and something funny I noticed at the doctor's office

There was a plastic model of an artery, on a little stand, and sticking up behind the model was a card showing a picture that looked exactly like the model, with various parts of the artery labeled: lumen, tunica adventitia, tunica media, plaque... and model mounting post. The bit of plastic holding the artery model up on the stand was labeled in the illustration! I love that. I imagined a doctor giving a diagnosis... "The problem is that you have inflammation of the model mounting post."
