    Ive noticed something, my skull isnt completely round at the back/upper part. Imean, well it is round, but theres like a "ditch", hard to explain, really.
    Its maybe 3-5 cm long. And the skull goes kinda inward a bit, imean, not straight inward, but if i feel around the back/upper part of the skull i can feel it. Gah its just to hard to explain. But anyone know anything about this? is it usual? Ill see if i can find some pic and explain or something.

    You're about as descriptive as a drunken jawa attempting to speak english. Draw it in paint if you have to.

    The occipital aera of the skull is not perfectly round. It's perfectly normal.

    Well, i understand that its not perfectly round. But mine isnt flat either. It cant be noticed from the side, but probably (ihavent seen it myself=P ) from above or behind.
    It has some resemblance (from feeling) to this

    but mine isnt nearly as deep and it goes along the head, not across. Like if you follow my nose up and to the back of my head. MAybe i just got to fixed up on it cos of feeling round my head to much. I didnt notice this until maybe half a year back.

    Lot's of people have ugly skulls. They usually don't find out until they decide to try the shaved head look and then they realize their skull is all lumpy or ridged or malformed in other ways.

    The skull is quite soft and malleable when young. Perhaps our culture should see to it that skulls are made more presentable.

    I woudlnt say my skull is ugly. And im not worried about the appearance, but rather the potential weakness. Would the skull be weaker or thinner in that area where the ditch is you think?

    I fear, that your skull has a potential weakness : he is not bulletproof

    hey don't worry about it, i have a number of ridges on my skull... almost liek small horns.. very small... not noticeable unless you really feel for them... like really hard.

    Anyway, my brother has this big dent in the side of his skull, he was jsut born like that.. and he's fine... he's becoming an actuary actually... from this evidence i conclude that skull deformations lead to an increased intelligence, you're a lucky chap.

    Check out gray's Anatomy online for free. It's an old edition but what you're on about isn't excessively complicated!

    I think what you're feeling are the nuchal lines on your occipital bone!

    Agreed, I think I have the same thing. we can be mutants together.

    horns eh? You don't have to keep them filed down do you...
    Do not try and bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead... only realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you'll see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself. -Spoon Boy

    I think I would look like an alien if I shaved my head. I'm scared to see my skull, because it sure as hell doesn't feel smooth.

    The skull is quite soft and malleable when young. Perhaps our culture should see to it that skulls are made more presentable.
    Reminds me of my Grandmother, or step grandmother. One of the children had an off shaped head, so she would 'massage' it every day for quite a while. it ended up turning out normal. Though I'm not sure if that was because of the massaging or just because the head matured to be normal.
    WHAT?!

    It's not meant to be totally smooth.
