Use of fingers - Statistical outlier
This was a quote from the New Scientist Last word section. The questioner had queried why the ring finger is less flexible than the others. Full link at:

www.newscientist.com/backpage.ns?id=mg19125672.800

One answer was as follows:

"The ring finger has the least dexterity because it is used least. The index finger is used for pointing, the little finger is extended while drinking tea and the middle finger is used when driving. The ring finger is used only once, shortly before marriage."

I rather like the explaination for middle finger dexterity.

Maybe it's just my mind but I can't think of anywhere for this thread to go but downhill.

Prove me wrong Backroomers, and it won't get locked!!! :-)

I won't ask how the hell you came up with that so quick. It's like you're physically plugged into the Net!
