From what I remember plankton is an umbrella term that includes more than just krill. However, I think blue whales only eat krill??? Idk I made the same error too

Isn't cartilage also a type of connective tissue in bone joints?
+6
Level 61
Dec 16, 2015
Yes it is a type of connective tissue, but it does not connect bone to bone in the joints. Cartilage only serves to prevent bone from rubbing on bone, which is why when cartilage wears away, moving that particular joint can and will be extremely painful, but the joint is still intact and functioning properly due to the ligament connecting the bones. So it is connective tissue, and it is found in joints, but it does not actually connect the bones.

Absolutely grasping for the Grumpier Old Men answer. I first tried Young Happy Girls, then Grumpy Old Men 2, and then happened to guess the right one. I'm amazed more people know about that movie (which looks mediocre at best) than know about what Kid gloves are.

I'm probably the only one who thought of the Cat in the Hat first for who said "Out, damn'd spot".

He never said it . . . but you know that's what he was thinking the whole time.
