For a human to do it requires dislocation of the elbow, as well as the extreme extensibility in the muscles and tendons. I've seen it done too. It's not unheard of, but it's quite uncommon.

I experience something akin to pain simply reading about it.

Actually a friend of mine in high school could do that with her elbow.

An ex GF of mine could do it to at the elbows...
My reaction was always a mirror of Faye's !  :)

Largely due to the elbow being the most secure non-fused joint in the human body.

That one was profound. Momo simultaneously headed off guilt and and (what would in other people be) defensiveness and made a demand for major effort from the organics.

"If everyone does their best" is totally different from good intentions.

That means independent study of what matters to most of the people in a marginalized group. That means scrutinizing what you publish. For example, even though "normal"  can have a neutral meaning, there's a message of exclusion when calling the majority "normal".

That means owning up to mistakes. Someone here, who definitely had good intentions, answered criticism without defensiveness but with "I regret causing offense. You deserve better.".

That means, when someone is angry, listening.

There's more. Momo set the bar high.
Do you have a link, or an approximate nmber range?

There was the cookie incident at 3162, and also her internal monologue from 2952-2959. Iím sure thereís more.

I was thinking specifically of the cookie faux pas by Ms. Reed. Momo did not elaborate on "If everyone does their best" but I saw the implications.
