Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Man, I tell you what--it's just a day for you to get all educated.

Yet ANOTHER interested soul, who stumbles upon the threshold of Possumblog asking the age-old question: What does it mean to have supernumery ribs?

Well, first of all, it's supernumerary, despite the fact that I misspelled it myself, which is how this nice person found Possumblog in the first place. BUT, now that I have corrected the original mistake, we can get along with the actual question at hand.

Supernumerary ribs are those that are left over from when you order the full rack at the barbecue joint, but you get full because you got beans and slaw and pie, too, and can't finish them all, so you wrap the rest of the ribs up and take them home and have them for breakfast the next morning.

You are welcome.
