I was recently introduced to the psoas muscle. In quadrapeds the psoas major is affectionately known as the tenderloin. It doesn't do much work in those critters so it makes for tender Canadian bacon, or tender filet mignon. In humans, the tenderloin is an important muscle tying the trunk to the leg. It connects the top of the leg bone (lesser trochanter of the femur) to the lower region of the backbone (transverse processes of the lumbar). I want mine to be a completely undesireable cut, should I happen upon cannibals. "Naw man, it's a toughloin. Don't even bother."

The timing of my use of this image as a background on some other website is merely happenstance. I do not now nor have I ever subscribed to the "Jesus rose from the dead as a levitating brown bear" hypothesis.

Doing a quick trip up to SEA next week. So I can fly Southwest out of Oakland, or for a slightly lower price I can fly Virgin America out of SFO. SW or VA? Hmmm. That's a tough one.
