You should never entirely trust text from Wikipedia without references, but:
"The ossicles (also called auditory ossicles) are three bones in either middle ear that are among the smallest bones in the human body. They serve to transmit sounds from the air to the fluid-filled labyrinth (cochlea). The absence of the auditory ossicles would constitute a moderate-to-severe hearing loss. The term "ossicle" literally means "tiny bone" and, though the term may refer to any small bone throughout the body, it typically refers to the malleus, incus, and stapes (hammer, anvil, and stirrup) of the middle ear."
I used to live in England. When I left, I decided to start making videos and recordings of bands I saw.
Why? Because someone else suggested and it seemed like a good idea. I did quite a lot at first, then it slowed down a bit. I developed a backlog of videos and recordings that need sorting out and uploading, although whether I'll get round to it remains to be seen. It seems to be slowly (very slowly) developing into a site to write slightly more developed articles about music in one way or another. We shall see.
