LD 49: Useless human anatomy

  • Palmaris longus: used by orangutans
  • Ear muscles: likely our ancestors could move their ear
  • Goose bumps: not much use as we don’t have a lot of hair
  • Wisdom teeth: help us to grind plant tissue
  • Tail bone (coccyx): our ancestor lives in trees
  • Hair: we’ve lost a lot of it already, some are pretty useful, others less so
