    I just copied this from the "anklebot" related article.
    "In particular, the ankle — the crucial juncture between the leg and the foot — is an anatomical jumble,"

    I can't believe I missed it first time around. The ankle is very cleverly designed. We don't have a handle on it yet which is why, I suppose, successful ankle joint replacements are not commonplace, and stupid statements like this are released.

    Put the foot plantigrade and place it on an environment it wasn't designed for (hard, flat surfaces), and it certainly seems like an anatomical jumble, with ligaments which look stronger medially rather than laterally, even though lateral ligament ankle sprains are common, but medial ligament ankle strains much less so.
    Try to dorsiflex the foot without orientating the malleolar axis between the malleoli first, and all you get is an early block.

    It's not even amusing, this stuff. It's dispiriting.
