"When you point your finger at somebody else, four fingers are pointing back at you!!!"
Everybody has probably heard this: "When you point your finger at somebody else, four fingers are pointing back at you!!!". But have you tried it????
I tried it. If I point one finger at something, then three of my fingers are curled into a fist shape, and are pointing over to my side. If I point with my left hand, those three fingers point to my left. And my thumb points forward and down. There sure aren't 4 fingers pointing back at me!!!
Okay so I tried putting my three fingers pointing back at myself, while pointing with one finger. It feels uncomfortable, but I can do it. But I can't get my thumb to point at myself!!
The only way I can get four fingers pointing at myself is to fold my hand in half at the fingers, not into a fist, and point with my thumb!!! Nobody points with their thumb!!!
