Peeling potatoes sucks...
    #2117760 - 11/17/03 07:42 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Peeling and cutting potatoes sucks!

I'm already missing six fingers, so I have a HUGE fear of cutting the rest =\

Over the summer I had a spring (the hook from trampoline springs) ripped through my pinkey, that scared the hell outta me.

I've always enjoyed peeling potatoes. Are you trying to peel them with a knife or with a potato peeler? Make sure the potato peeler is left handed if you're left handed (the only time I've hated it is when I have to use right handed peelers, because I'm left handed). I think it's fun trying to get the biggest strips possible, and just making a carving out of your potato. But maybe I'm just easily amused... probably that... :laugh:

I thought thumbs don't actually count as fingers?

wow I didn't know you don't have 10 fingers..

it will be nice to meet you in person. :smile:

on a side note, is it hard to type on the keyboard. I personally have 10 fingers but I use only 5 to type.. I never learned right. :wink:

I think the normal human being has 10 fingers (unless I've been lied to all these years!!!), so thumbs have to count.

>I thought thumbs don't actually count as fingers?

they might, but when there half of what ya gotya count em as fingers =P

>is it hard to type on the keyboard.

Not really ive adapted, i do most of my typing with my indec finger, and the nub next to my pinky, and of course the pinky gets used a lot. Its prolly gonna end up in carple tunnel (sp?) a lot sooner then it would someone with all of em though =\

Then there are the various issues that arise with the nubs, the bone got infected in one of my fingers after i coought a lamp with the tip of it causing the bone to break the skin, i had one of thos PIC IV's (part of an IV you get put in bandaged up then you get to take it home and shoot up yourself.) for most of a winter.

What is it you do for a living? I'm just curious, cuz I know having being born like that would certianly limit your career range to an extent, so I was just wondering..

I had a good friend who only had a thumb and pinky on one hand. That summabitch could pinch like a frigging vise! I mean, literally squeeze flesh till it separated from your body without pulling.
