Polydactylism

Question- what is polydactylism?

Answer#1- # 3 in yahoo’s top 10 search list

Answer #2- Polydactylism, or having one or more extra fingers or toes, is probably the most common abnormality of development found at birth. Polydactylism is reported in about 2 per 1000 children.

I am ashamed to say I had never heard that word before.  And, since it was #3 on the yahoo list, I must be about the only one.  But, in case I wasn’t, now you know what polydactylism is, too.  And, now that I have learned my something for the day, I am done doing anything worthwhile!

    Try this one- Koumpounophobia. I have a friend who just told me last week that she has this!

  11. Graffiti Says:

    Hobophobia?
    A fear of bums.
    I like that!

    However according to my ‘text’ books it is actually a fear of travel. So according to them it is not a fear of what the hobo is but of what the hobo does.

    Koumpounophobia? I will look that up and see if I can find it.

    Have you heard of Hoffophobia?
