It is inefficient to bang your head against a wall as it only burns on average 150 calories an hour.  You would do better to minimize the amount of cream and sugar you add to your coffee. 
~~to say nothing about your typical coffee milkshakes ubiquitously available everywhere...

The word 'muscle' is derived from the Latin musculus, diminutive of mus, which means 'mouse'.
...as it was thought that their form was often mouse-like in appearance.
It is questionable if 'hamstring' is derived from hamsters but we shall make inquiries.
maybe.

My anatomy class resolves many issues for students about the form, structure and articulation of the varied and numerous body parts: internal, deep and superficial. ~~However some issues, not being under the specific purview of the class, are left unresolved --such as why it is that noses run and feet smell.

The Bourdaloue was originally designed for women, although men used it as well --likely without asking permission; it was purportedly named after a Catholic priest in France named Louis Bourdaloue, whose sermons were so long that women brought their Bourdaloue with them so they could attend the entire sermon, uninterrupted.
Sometimes it's all to easy to see what that would look like...

Never neglect the ears.
They influence, in one way or another, the sense of balance within your drawing and without it.

One would think that the heart is the busiest muscle(s) in the body, however one would be thinking incorrectly.  The eye muscles are the most active with over 100,000 shifts & shuffles in a typical day.
I must now flex my eyes and get back to my drawing.

I likes my coffee.
I likes my coffee dark, full bodied and black.
I draw the line, however, at Kopi Luwak.
...and it ain't the $600 a pound price tag either!

In mid-1600s England one could attend a Penny University for the one cent price of admission.  This penny would grant you access to all manner of news, a good fire, meeting opportunities with friends for business, debate or pleasure, perhaps a game of chess and most importantly a dish or two of coffee.

Asking people to grant you small favors eventually leads them to believe that they are fond of you, because they know they only do things for people they like.
If you push this strategy too far, it will have the opposite effect.
--so beware, be very ware.
btw, could you comment on today's blog post for me?
