The radial pulse in the wrist is detectable on the "thumb" side of the hand. However, the cubital pulse, though usually weaker, can be felt on palpation in most people. See more »

Maybe the dumbest movie ever made
21 February 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

If a it's called a cow and it has udders IT IS A GIRL! I mean seriously, couldn't they have made the whole thing with the same plot and just not stuck udders on the otherwise clearly MALE cattle? At least when they make worker ants and bees male it's not as in your face stupid as sticking udders on a bull. I think I could have enjoyed the movie otherwise, there were some funny bits, the animation itself wasn't bad. Nothing original of course but a nice enough way to pass the time. The 'love interest' was entirely predictable apart from the uncomfortable fact that the guy wasn't a guy, just a really butch girl which I'm fairly sure wasn't what the makers intended. They were lucky the Christian Right didn't pick up on that.
