I sometimes discover so really odd information. Today I want to share an interesting topic I stumbled across-missing fingers.
Setting: You are being forced to choose a finger for someone else to chop off, which one would you choose?!
Instinctively people jump to the pinky because it is small and at the end of the hand. In reality the best decision for the fullest function of your hand is to pick the non-dominant hand's index finger.
I know what you are thinking-an index finger?! We use our index fingers for pointing, touch screen technology etc. But...the way our hands and tendons are we are able to easily adapt to our middle finger becoming that dominant place.
So, if you are ever in a position where you must choose what finger someone else will cut off...now you know! Your non-dominant pointer finger.
Bonus information you will likely never need: If a bear is chasing you in the woods and you must run choose down hill because their front legs are shorter than their back legs (they run quite well going up hill!)
