    It’s that thing sticking out on the bottom of the ribcage that gets pushed out as you get older and fatter. Most people discover it about 30 or 40 when it gets lumpy and they freak out. Harmless, just cartilage pushed by fat.

    You’ll find the “more” from the “read more” button at the bottom of the skeleton.

    @TrapperJohn *****Thank you – I had no idea. Reading the comics is always such an education. *And, yeah, I agree – that is MUCH clearer.

    It’s going to be more of a fast run than a walk.

    The xiphoid process is also what they warn you to avoid when you take a CPR class. Don’t want to break it off, it could puncture something.

    “The xiphoid process, or xiphisternum or metasternum, is a small cartilaginous process (extension) of the lower part of the sternum which is usually ossified in the adult human.”

    Translation:
    sternum = breastbone
    cartilaginous = made of cartilage rather than bone
    ossified = turned to bone
    The extension of the breastbone, therefore, does not start out as bone but turns into bone later in life.
