Introducing new science
This is a detailed composite showing the superior facets of the human atlas. The right anterior quadrant on this bone shows a divot or erosion due to an incorrect positioning of the head (occipital condyles) over time. This hole is approximately 1/16 inch deep, and can obviously be detected by even a blind man.

Yes, I am fully aware that the three links directly above are no longer working. I do not know for sure that my linking to them is what caused for them to no longer be available. But I do know that it only took about two weeks after I did link to them for their site to disappear. I am hoping that they will be returning in the near future.
