Anthroplogists had it wrong

I have always read that our thumbs are the most important appendages of our body. It is our thumbs that separate man from beast, enabling us to use tools to build great civilizations and drink our morning coffee. Anthropologists had it all wrong...

It is our mouse finger that is the most important in the age of Windows and Apples. The inability to click and scroll without pain brings about great frustration.

The wincing caused by typing out simple words to screen was distressing enough. Then to find one can't click and scroll, well...let's just say I'll be more careful about protecting my mouse finger from now on.

LOL. I had the same thought when I sliced both my thumb and mouse-finger to ribbons recently. I could barely function online or off:) And buttons? No way!

LOL When I first read about your finger, I wondered how it would affect your computer use.
