Supa the Schoolgirl....

That's right boys and girls, Supa is furiously studying her azz off in preparation for this week's final....and the shyt is no joke.(!!) Like, I didn't realize when I signed up for this course, that I'd end up being damn near pre-med. But it's all good. I'ma cram this whole semester into my brain within the next few days, then miraculously forget it all once the test is done. (ha! not really) Wish me luck!!!

Meanwhile, Supa's got a lil' something fun for ya. I will send a complimentary copy of 3P to the first person who can answer these questions: (1) What are the muscles of scapular stabilazation and EACH of their functions, (2) what's the strongest muscle in the body, and (3) define the ASIS and where it's located.

(does all this make your head hurt? welcome to my world!!!)

GO!!!!!!

1. The main muscles providing scapular stabilization are the rhomboids (major and minor), trapezius, and serratus anterior. The rhomboids work together to retract the scapula (shoulder blades). The trapezius is responsible for drawing the shoulder blades up and pulling the shoulder blades down. The serrats anterior (under the armpits) pulls the scapula forward, as in a punching motion.

2. The strongest muscle in the body is the tongue. I guess talking and kissing require a lot of heavy lifting.

3. The anterior superior iliac spine (ASIS) is located on the outer crest of the pelvis.

Please make autograph out to L.D. Love ya!

Aw comeon, professor? Can't you let me slide? Gettin all technical and whatnot. Okay here goes:

The other muscle providing scapular stabilization is the, uhhhh...SCAPULAR muscle?

The strongest muscle in the body is the is the masseter muscle, which is located in the jaw (but tongue is a much sexier answer).

My head hurts! Good luck on the final, Supa...I know you'll represent!

Supa said...

I won't win any contests, but you got my vote for knowing how to make a brain hurt real hard!

#1: Um. I'm reading that question for the fourth time just to understand it...

#2: Your heart. Just that you are tackling this kind of stuff tells me that

#3: The "ASIS" where my brain went when I tried reading question 1 for the fifth time!

(Seriously, chick. I have to stand and applaud you for this pursuit.)
