Re: semilunate carpal
He attributes his success in part to a childhood injury to his right
elbow, which healed badly so that bones fused in a way that restricted
his movement. The result was that his cueing action was abnormally
clean and straight, since he didn't have the flexibility for
side-to-side movement which hinders most snooker players.
A nice example. :) I think in maniraptors that the restriction in movement
was dorsoventral - but a lot of sidewards/transverse motion was permitted.
Purely anectodal, and based on a pathology rather than a selected-for
character, but evidence that restrictions on mobility can be helpful!
Certainly! For snooker and predation alike I would say! :)
