        It says at the top that "this" is a "sticky" subject. I have no idea why- all one has to do is go to a medical dictionary, one approved for educational use and,, educate one's self and USE it! LOL!!!! The sticky part seems a bit "off" in that a definition is just that, the meaning of the word. Even the unabridged Webster could define these terms and more. Someone does not like the definition of 4skin? Seems a bit silly but then it is 2023 in the USA and 1+1=11 so I guess I should not be too disappointed Click image for larger version
