How to use nub in a sentence?

  1. Adam Hartstone-Rose:

    The pseudothumb is definitely more than just a nub, it has both a bone and cartilaginous extension and three distinct muscles that move it. The pseudothumb can wriggle in space and exert an amount of force equivalent to almost half the aye-ayes body weight. So it would be quite useful for gripping.
