Hitchhiker's Thumb

Does anyone else find this recessive trait hot?

by Anonymousreply 3901/01/2013

Who's trolling? I genuinely find this to be hot. A couple of men who have it are Cal Ripken Jr and Food Network chef Michael Symon (both bald, but I don't think that has anything to do with it).

you can't physically have one if you are a violinist, so no

Michael Symon HH thumb

Interesting, OP. Do you just like the appearance or do you want that thing rubbing up against your prostate?

by Anonymousreply 512/29/2012

For you, OP.

Both, R5.

I have it. And I used to hitch hike a lot in high school.

I have never heard of HH Thumb.

So what does a regular thumb look like?

I have Hitchhiker's Thumb and thought everyone's thumb looked like mine.

R10, this is a normal thumb

by Anonymousreply 1112/29/2012

Normal? That thumb is twice normal length, R11.

by Anonymousreply 1212/29/2012

Wow! I've had HH Thumb fo 50 years and didn't even know it. Also, my left thumb is double-jointed.

by Anonymousreply 1312/29/2012

I just meant normal in terms of the way it's shaped/proportioned.

by Anonymousreply 1412/29/2012

Unh-Unh, R11 !

That thumb looks abnormal to me.

I'm going to have start paying attention to my friends' thumbs.

by Anonymousreply 1512/29/2012

Okay, the thumb I posted at R11 is abnormally long, but it's still not a HH thumb. Here's a picture of a non-HH thumb that's also of normal length.

Violinists with normal thumbs are hot, R3.

by Anonymousreply 1712/29/2012

Same here, R13

by Anonymousreply 1812/29/2012

I didn't think you used your thumb to play the violin, except to hold it?

by Anonymousreply 1912/29/2012

Bullshit, r3.

That's what my teacher David Cerone told me and that's the story I'm sticking to

by Anonymousreply 2112/29/2012

There is no such thing as double jointed, you fucking moron.

by Anonymousreply 2212/29/2012

R22 is the "you can't be allergic to cigarette smoke, you fucking moron" troll.

She should sit on that hairy, crooked thumb of hers and learn the definition of "commonplace terminology."

Funny, I can turn my normal thumb into a HH thumb by flexing it backwards a little.

Cue the "Twilight Zone" theme, somebody.

thumbs up bump!

Thumb-fuck me into next week!

by Anonymousreply 2612/30/2012

I have it. Now that I know I have it, everything's coming up Millhouse.

by Anonymousreply 2712/30/2012

I have a HH thumb as well. It really freaks my little nieces and nephews out. I hold it as if it's a normal thumb against the table and then act as if I am pressing it hard and it bends almost 90 degrees backwards.

I am an anomaly though, I was born with six fingers on each hand and six toes on each foot.

by Anonymousreply 2812/30/2012

I have it too. And the pinky on my right hand bends right back to touch the front of my hand as well.

by Anonymousreply 2912/30/2012

R28 and R29 are FA-REEAKKYY!!!

by Anonymousreply 3012/30/2012

I can pick stuff up and carry it with my toes and cross my pinky toes over the ring finger toes.

by Anonymousreply 3112/30/2012

My cousin was born with half his arm and his hand tiny, never formed. And when he was little he would bump his little hand into things. One time he was crying, visiting our house, and I said, Davey, what's wrong?

I knocked my finger off, he said. And he was holding a tiny finger in his good hand. He was so sad, because it was gone. I was amazed (before I started to feel like passing out, calling for my mother) how there was almost no blood from it.

Speaking of recessive traits, anyone else who cannot roll their tongue, nor taste PTC?

by Anonymousreply 3312/30/2012

Haha, I never knew there was a name for this! My siblings and I always called it Black Preachers' Thumb, because we grew up in the AA church of the 50s-early 80s; and a good 90% of the hundreds of preachers we saw, had it. We thought it was creepy, odd, and hilarious.

Check out pics of Rev. Jesse Jackson. He has it, big time.

Don't know about JJ's thumbs, but he does have nice hands...

The joints where my thumbs attach to my hands are weird too, almost double-jointed and definitely odd.

Yuck, R36.

by Anonymousreply 3701/01/2013

Nobody has ever commented on them, R37. They don't look that different. I just wondered if that's part of hitchhiker's thumb.

by Anonymousreply 3801/01/2013

I'm normal, y'all.
