I was born missing my right pinky finger. AMA!

I have a normal hand minus 1. I think it's kinda interesting.

Do you ever call it your "cartoon hand", since so many cartoons only have 4 fingers?

I get a lot of "Real-life Homer Simpson" comments.

Can you please tape a baby carrot where the pinky is supposed to be?

WHY?! I've gotten this request so much and I don't get it!

I only drink out of coffee mugs.

Have you considered starting a band? Four-finger-death punch, Four for fighting... I'd listen for the names alone.

I've considered the name 4-Digits. The first single will be called The Gloves Are Off. http://imgur.com/gallery/FOCfn

How useful is having a pinky, or rather, is it harder to do things with your right hand?

 15   0  

I sometimes think it's a lot easier to do things without a pinky, but some activities like piano are challenging.

Are you right or left handed?

Righty

Are you right handed?

If so, what are most people's reactions when shaking hands for the first time?

 21   0  

I shake with the right and I always see people's eyebrows raise just a little, like there was something just a little off about that handshake.

How do you find gloves? Are you right handed? Are there things designed for 10 fingered people that you find awkward to use?

 18   0  

I wear normal gloves, but I let the empty pinky finger be all floppy. I do mostly everything with my right hand. Gloves and pinky promises are not my thing.

How do you give high-fives? Exclusive to the left hand?

 21   0  

I'm more of a fist bump person. People who know me tuck their pinkies in when high four-ing.

Best thing you can do with it/advantages?

 15   0  

I've done a bunch "I cut my finger off!" pranks. It's also an interesting conversation topic.

What was your high school nickname?

 34   0  

Frodo and Dumbass. Frodo because of Baggins got his finger bitten off. The second name for completely unrelated reasons.

Does it make it difficult to multiply by nine?

 6   0  

It doesn't hinder my ability to count.

 1   0  

Do you imagine a pinky to do the nine multiplication trick?

 2   0  

I don't use my fingers to multiply anymore.

Can you do a one handed clap?

Not sure what that is but I probably can't.

Can you organize all your questions in one cohesive message? And pizza.

Do you play any instruments that would need (or that it would be helpful for you to have) 5 fingers?

 9   0  

I played the piano, which I could imagine would easier with a pinky finger, and guitar which doesn't really require the pinky. Having four fingers actually helps when playing the bass guitar because I don't have a weak finger on my plucking hand.

where is it?

is there bone or other ligament evidence it could have formed but just didn't?

 15   0  

There are no traces of pinky finger bones or ligaments. It basically didn't form.

Comstock or Booker?

My hobby is to shout and throw guns at Booker.

Are your right-hand fingers bigger than your left?

 3   0  

My right ring finger is a tiny bit more beefier than the left, other than that, it's all the same.

 2   0  

do you ever wonder what life would be with your pinky finger? Would anything be different?

 3   0  

I think my life would be less interesting. I like the jokes and comments about my hand. In fact, I met my first date because she noticed my freaky hand. Oh, and gloves, I would wear gloves better.

Was it your mother or father who was the Toon? Do you find yourself unusually resistant to physical harm/Dip?

 6   0  

My father is a rabbit with gloves. I have the ability to drop anvils seeming out of nowhere. I also have a weird aversion to men with shotguns.

How did you type the "P" then? Checkmate

"How did you type the 'P'?". I moved my hand half an inch to the right.

Do you have any difficulty doing things like bowling or holding a golf club or throwing a baseball?

 6   0  

I don't notice anything wrong with golf or bowling. I was actually a good pitcher because I had a different grip on the ball.

 1   0  

Good pitcher as in everybody was used to a person with 5 fingers per hand?

 1   0  

Slightly above average compared to a five-fingered hand.

Do you think you could go pro?

Ha. No.

Does it make playing sports more difficult?

 1   0  

Depends. Soccer? no. Baseball? not really. Handball? Probably.

What about tennis and golf?

 1   0  

I gripped the racquet with both hands and never played golf. I assume it's the same as holding a tennis racquet.

Do you have pictures of your hands xrays?

 1   0  

Sorry, I guess the doctors didn't think it was important enough to take an X ray.

What caused your pinky finger to not be formed? Do doctors have any theories for example a genetic mutation or something else?

Is there anyone else in your family history known to have been born without their right pinky finger?

 2   0  

Their is no prior family history of it. Doctors think it's a tiny deviation in my genetic code.

So if you had a baby could your child possibly be missing his/her right pinky finger? IOW is it something that is heritable?

 3   0  

I really hope so, but I can't really know. But I really want kids with four fingers.

 1   0  

Is it hard for you to grip some things at times? For example, a coffee mug.

 2   0  

Not really. Maybe an Xbox controller but the difference isn't that noticeable.

Cake or pie?

Pie.

Does it feel different to masturbate?

If you're asking if it feels different to pull a carrot out of the ground, then no, it doesn't.

How do you know you're not missing your 4th or middle finger instead?

 9   0  

'Cause it's just, like... not there. It's not an abnormally large pinky.

 1   0  

Can you only really tell since you know what a pinky finger feels like?

 2   0  

Yeah, I have experience in pinky usage.

What is up with your thumbs? They're massive.

 3   0  

I think it's just the angle. Or you have really small thumbs.
