Osteology Everywhere: I’ve been doing this too long

I was trying to squeeze a nice picture of the African continent into the Gall-Peters projection, and I suddenly saw something I hadn’t seen there before:

The image at right is the fossil, KNM-ER 3228 a 1.9 million year old right pelvic (innominate) bone of Homo (erectus?) from Kenya. Not 100% identical, maybe rotate ER 3228 medially a bit. You know you’ve been doing it too long when you start to see Osteology Everywhere.
