Ten-sai,

Talk about arguments from utter ignorance; would you be one of those evos who "believe" in vestiges? Which vestigal organs do you "believe" you are in possession of? Inquiring minds want to know.

SLPx:
Gray's Anatomy, 15th Edition. (Chancellor Press, 1985)
"Extensor Coccygis is a slender muscular fasciculus, occasionally present, which extends over the lower part of the posterior surface of the sacrum and coccyx. It arises by tendinous fibres from the last bone of the sacrum, or first piece of the coccyx, and passes downwards to be inserted into the lower part of the coccyx. It is a rudiment of the Extensor muscle of the caudal vertebrae in the lower animals."
A muscle that attaches to the caudal sacrum and the coccyx can have only one function - to extend the coccyx. Can you extend your coccyx? No? maybe you do not have an EC. Or maybe the EC you do have does not function. Take your pick..."
Or perhaps an utterly functionless muscle was designed to be present in some people, but not others, that in mammals with tails, extends the tail?
What function do goosebumps have in humans? In mammals they raise the hairs to trap air & act as an insulator.
Also,

I thought goosebumps force oil into follicles and onto skin, trapping air around the surface of the skin and thus the air provides additional insulation.
Sebacious glands & not goosebumps, cause this. I produce more oil when I'm hot, not cold.
