#13 I found this article and interestingly, it seems that the sagittal crest indicate strong jaw muscles, implying that talking a lot cause the crest, not the radiation.

Excerpt from the article (link above):

"A sagittal crest is a ridge of bone running lengthwise along the midline of the top of the skull (at the sagittal suture) of many mammalian and reptilian skulls, among others. The presence of this ridge of bone indicates that there are exceptionally strong jaw muscles."

Bottom line, "Shut up and put the phone away!"
