    1 in 10,000?!? That doesn't sound that rare.... Winning the lottery is less probable and I hear about people winning all the time.

    What you “hear about” is what’s newsworthy, not what’s rare.

    How many extra copies would a newspaper headline like “MAN’S INTERNAL ORGANS REVERSED” sell, do you think?

    I thought it was far rarer than that, and didn't know it was called situs inversus. Some people are born with prehensile tails. Have known a few, but never knew anyone that had situs inversus.

    I knew that some infants are born with vestigial tails but not prehensile tails. Citation, please.

    That means there are something like 32,000 cases in the US, and 750,000 worldwide.
