Remember a few series ago Stephen said there are no muscles in your fingers.

Every hair on your body is controlled by Erector muscles. Finger have hairs on them so therefore there are muscles in your fingers.

Oooh, potentially one for the coveted Quibble of the year award!

Quite correct, however. What did Mr Fry actually say on the show? Was is that there were no muscles in the fingers, or was it that the muscles controlling them weren't in the fingers themselves.

Over to MinervaMoon, possibly.

Now there's a question I'd love to see answered (and asked).

Yes, I know it was a typo, but it is a funny typo!

I am ashamed to admit that I don't read that section of the site.
