I’d take a picture of my hand to show you how it does work, but technically a thumb ain’t a finner.

So you can read between the lines! \o/ xD

Now, raise the thumb, and it will curve backwards towards you!

Mine doesn't bend that far back. Are you double jointed or something?

No, but it curves back towards me.

But it does not point AT you. It can't. Not even hitchhiker's thumb bends that far back. Ninety degrees is about as far as a hitchhiker's thumb will go.

And yes, I did hitch around the US in the late 70s, early 80s. I don't have hitchhiker's thumb. :P

What about hers? (From “Even Cowgirls Get the Blues”). It gave her hitchhiking superpowers.

Mine will point up or can be curled to point down but will never point back.

Actually my left thumb was was dislocated in a motorcycle accident a long long time ago so it won't even point up any more ....

I've never even heard of it and those thumbs are obviously fake. That isn't what double jointed/hitchhiker's thumb means.

I figured, just wanted you to see. FYI, it is Uma Thurman. The movie was quirky, but good.

I recognized her.  That's how I knew the thumbs were fake and not Brachydactyly. She isn't related to the 4 cases that have been reported, all in the same family.

Other half loves the Kill Bill movies. I'm tired of seeing them.

Reminds me of a syndrome my pastor has, she’s really tall and has very long arms.

Hopefully it isn't something that causes her pain.

 

And I just realized how long I've been posting today. Too long. I haven't gotten anything accomplished.

Depends on your thumb.  Mine doesn't curve much at all.

Did you ever see the old Twilight Zone?  Black Mirror is kind of like that but better.

If you decide to give it a try, watch a few episodes.  Like most things, some are better than others.
