    I think my doc asked me to when I was in ICU to see if I still had hand function, so of course I courteously obliged.

    Left hand is a no go. Right is a semi-reasonable fax. Propped with the left, it's a bird, it's a plane, you've just been two-fisted flipped.

    Even though I'm T6, I'm double-jointed in my hands so when I flip the bird, my finger doesn't extend completely. It looks kinda bizarre if you look closely.

    I fine it to dangerest to flip a bird at a stranger here in south florida. They'll kill you here i've had people spit on me threaten to kill me. But so far nobody ever hit yet.

    Once I saw a big guy, built like a bodybuilder in a wheelchair roll over to a young guy that parked in a disabled spot. He yelled my be five words to him and the guy layed him out.

    I'd watch that finger stuff.
