  1. I never knew the name of this or how rare it actually is, but my great uncle has this condition. Always found it amazing that his organs are back to front and it doesn’t affect him in the slightest, just confuses doctors when he needs general check ups and treatment.

  2. .01% or 1 in 10,000 (wiki)

    I read an autobiography of a Thai executioner. In Thailand, the condemned used to be shot to death by a single shooter with a bullet or bullets to the heart. Well this one lady had this condition; they found her semi-concious in the morgue and had to bring her back out for another go at it.

  3. Yeah, imma need a source on the scrubs part. Dr. Miller flips it in an intro claiming “that’s been bugging me” and Zach Braff has stated it was a fuck up by the props guy. The X-ray is backwards.

  4. My ex and her identical twin both have this condition. They are both unable to have children due to a complication from it that arose when they began menstruating.
