The Internet's a strange place. People tend to show off and kill time by doing weird things like eating straight cinnamon, popping zits, and even making themselves faint.
Well, there’s another trend that’s making the rounds, and I’m sad to say that it’s not an improvement.
It seems that some of the people doing this are actually double-jointed, which is somewhat comforting. But the fact that people will go through the trouble of dislocating their thumbs for, uh, no reason at all is a little troubling.
Thumbs are what separate us from the apes. Let’s not take them for granted.
Now take a look at these photos to determine which ones are double-jointed people having some fun and which ones are wayward kids harming themselves for no good reason.
Let's hope for the sake of humanity that this is a hoax by people showing off a unique talent.
I'm guessing the person who did it is the same type of guy who gets a lot of mileage out of stuff like this at parties.
