Alright. On the back of my head I've got this thing I can best describe as a boney bump on my skull. I've only found one other person that has this bump on thier head. That other person is my dad, but yeah its not like I go around and feel peoples heads to find out if they have a bump on their back of their head. But I have felt my girlfriends, my mothers, fathers, sisters, and asked some people at school if they had that, but I don't remember the results from my classmates.

So do yaa??

Oh ya if you don't understand at first and want to change your answer you're aloud  :)

That's your external occipital protruberance - and it's entirely normal. Historically some scientists thought that the shape of the skull revealed the relative sizes of the different parts of the brain sitting beneath. Since these different brain regions were thought to have different functions, the "phrenologists" as they were known suggested that feeling the shape and contours of the head could reveal a subject's strengths and weaknesses.

The external occipital protruberance sits above the part of the brain called the cerebellum, which we now know is involved in making fine, accurate movements. But in the past it was thought to be linked to love! So if you believe what the phrenologists were saying, and you have a big external occipital protruberance, then you should  be a great lover. Which just goes to show that, when it comes to love, size is definitely important.
