index finger

Whenever I let my hand go limp my index finger stays up above the other fingers. Am I a freak or does everyone’s fingers do that? If everyone’s finger does that, why?

Mine does too.

Guess: It has something to do with the free length of ligaments.


I know this sounds dumb, but what finger is the index finger?

The one closest to the thumb.

to expand on that with my theory, I think it’s because the index is used so much more than any other finger, it’s more flexible and limber, which would explain the ligament thing that haj mentions


Would you all please stop doing that; you look like a bunch of pansies :smiley:

Thanks. My hand does that too.
