The thumb is the first finger of the hand. When a person is standing in the medical anatomical position (where the palm is facing to the front), the thumb is the outermost digit. The Medical Latin English noun for thumb is pollex (compare hallux for big toe), and the corresponding adjective for thumb is pollical.

Finger and thumb

The English word "finger" has two senses, even in the context of appendages of a single typical human hand:

Any of the five digits.
Any of the five terminal members of the hand, especially those other than the thumb.

Linguistically, it appears that the original sense was the broader of these two: penkwe-ros (also rendered as penqrós) was, in the inferred Proto-Indo-European language, a suffixed form of penkwe (or penqe), which has given rise to many Indo-European-family words (tens of them defined in English dictionaries) that involve or flow from concepts of fiveness.

The thumb shares the following with each of the other four fingers:

Having a skeleton of phalanges, joined by hinge-like joints that provide flexion toward the palm of the hand
Having a "back" surface that features hair and a nail, and a hairless palm-of-the-hand side with fingerprint ridges instead

The thumb contrasts with each of the other four by being the only digit that:

Is opposable to the other four fingers
Has two phalanges rather than three
Has greater breadth in the distal phalanx than in the proximal phalanx
Is attached to such a mobile metacarpus (which produces most of the opposability)

and hence the etymology of the word: "tum" is Proto-Indo-European for "swelling" (cf "tumour" and "thigh") since the thumb is the stoutest of the fingers.

Considering that most content on this site is just taken from reddit or imgur, OP actually put in more work than most people when posting content even if it is a small amount of work.
#21 to #14 - Rascal (05/03/2014) [-]
This is at the very least, informative or interesting.
The others are just piles of ****

User avatar #27 - PenguinsOfMars ONLINE (05/03/2014) [-]

User avatar #16 - yunoavailable (05/03/2014) [-]
what is and isn't "cancer" changes over time, rage comics used to only be recognized by people like fj users
#39 - Rascal (05/03/2014) [-]
You're a terrible judge.
User avatar #15 - NeucularNINJA (05/03/2014) [-]

And to think FJers actually found this **** funny. I don't care what was considered "non-cancerous" at the time... we put no effort into our content. It was all a load of cancerous **** .
User avatar #22 - gwenislove (05/03/2014) [-]

the most thumbed is a black image that says "waiting" and got over 34k before being deleted
User avatar #41 to #22 - moviexplain (05/03/2014) [-]

User avatar #44 to #42 - moviexplain (05/03/2014) [-]
Again, moron, how is he going to screencap something that doesn't exist. He obviously only put the CURRENT ones that haven't been deleted.
User avatar #46 to #44 - gwenislove (05/03/2014) [-]
youre a ******* retard
if he even knew it existed, hed know exactly what it looked like, and could literally recreate it in paint in 5 seconds
User avatar #65 to #46 - mudkipfucker (05/03/2014) [-]

User avatar #52 to #51 - moviexplain (05/03/2014) [-]
Yes, because we're the idiots purposely starting arguments online for no apparent reason other than to try and grow that epeen a bit more, such should probably just drop out of middle school ASAP and live the rest of your life as a hobo, later nerd.

It was completely cancerous at the time, you just weren't aware of it.
User avatar #29 to #26 - greendaynimrod (05/03/2014) [-] just because you've been here for a few months doesn't mean you know the whole damn history of this site. Ive been with this site since 07' (only had an account since 09') and I remember that it was damn funny at the time.
User avatar #30 to #29 - heatmon (05/03/2014) [-]

I've been here since 2006, dude.

You know, I used to do what you're doing right now, calling people newfags simply because they made an account not even a year ago, and then I realized it's really ******* gay.
User avatar #32 to #31 - heatmon (05/03/2014) [-]
