Sacrum is what the coccyx is attached to in the lower vertebral bone structure below the lumbar region, and your coccyx is what you are sitting on, the very bottom piece of bone that is commonly referred to as the tailbone.

GOOGLE it if you don't know next time, it will help you remember it better ;)

Ok this is going to sound childish and immature, so that being said, I remember that the coccyx is closest to where "cockie" (poop) comes out but the Sacrum is Safe. :lol2:

Sacrum Safe

I told you it was childish :lol2:
