Good News!

From Well Blog's list of 11 medical myths:

It's good to know that the only people I'm hurting are those around me.

You crack your knuckles? Stay the #&@% away from me!

crack those knuckles on some of your TV appearances -- it could be a little in joke for those who read your blog and catch you on the tube.

But don't start doing that thing where people stretch their neck to crack a neck bone. Now that's annoying.

It always makes me feel a little better hearing this myth debunked. That being said, I can't imagine having you joints slam together as the air is released is particularly great for them.
