Opposably Thumbs


Not having opposable thumbs is hard for me to grasp.


note: if air were solid, people might do more grasping than gasping.

double note: having the opposhits sounds like constipation.


what I’m listening to now #54: my heartbeat sporadically … but other stuff too!

Thumb Opposition

An animal species is said to have opposable thumbs if the thumb is capable of bending in such a way that it can touch all the other digits on the hand.


I think I have an opposable nose.

 … it’s possibly prehensile too!


note: many people are opposed to my nose, but I favor it.

double note: “all those opposed … raise your thumbs”
