Throw me a frickin' bone

In doing this project where I'm drawing these anatomy pieces for a medical text, I've had to learn a lot of anatomy. For instance, I now know the difference between an efferent duct and a convoluted vas. For people starting out in med school, or for high schoolers taking biology, learning the different bones in the body is definitely required. Here's a fun way to do it. Really.

It's a game called "Whack-a-Bone", where you have to place bones in their proper place, and then name them. It sounds boring, but it's actually quite interesting. Then, to reward you, you get to whack the shit out of them with a sledge hammer.
