    Oh, good. Thanks Rosyposyosy. I was sort of confused and worried. I thought that I could lick my elbow.

    And so I tried again, and I still can! The left one. Absolutely not possible with the right one. (Must find a chiropractor....I'm crooked!)

    Regarding #38, I also heard that it would be physically impossible for Barbie to stand upright. I think it's got to do with she'd be so tall and have such big boobs and tiny feet that her center of gravity would be up high and pull her over. LOL
