    I'm no expert in human anatomy, but I would guess that those are arms.

    People have failed the system almost as much as it has failed them. There are some very intelligent people who came to be through the public educational system.

    This made me laugh though, like on faimly guy when brian was a coke head and screamed "PUT DOWN THE FORK, FACE!"
