Love Me Tender

Because of the unusual way in which human bruising is measured, it is possible to be bruised on 120% of one's body. Dr Theo Harpur, who set up the measurement system (called the Harpur Scale) in the 1930s assumed there were some parts of the body which do not bruise. He was wrong. In the unlikely event that you are kicked all over by angry camels or fall down a particularly long stretch of scree and are bruised (literally) from tip to toe, you may well find yourself reaching the illogical level of 12 out of 10 on the Harpur scale!
