Wave All Your Fingers at Your Neighbors Day.
Yes, today is another strange day, so kindly, wave at your neighbor. Not that way, even if you are mad, just use all your fingers.
Hand gestures have been a form of communication since man was on this earth. Without speech, we used hand gestures. Even with speech we still use our hands. Here are some ways that are good and some not so good ways to use your hands, but not today. Keep it for another day. Behave!
- Clenched fist: is used as a gesture of defiance or solidarity.
- Benediction and blessing: The benediction gesture is a raised right hand with the ring and little finger fingers touching the palm, while the middle and index fingers remain raised.
- Blah-blah: The fingers are kept straight and together, held horizontal, while the thumb points downwards. The fingers and thumb then snap together repeatedly to suggest a mouth talking.
- Check, please: This gesture, used to mean that a diner wishes to pay the bill and depart, done by touching the index finger and thumb together and “writing”.
- Crossed fingers: are used to superstitiously wish for good luck or to nullify a promise.
- Cuckoo sign: touched or screw loose. In North America, making a circling motion of the index finger at the ear or side of the head signifies that the person “has a screw loose”.
- Middle finger salute: The finger is an obscene hand gesture used in much of Western culture.
- High five: slapping the palms together.
- Fist bump: just what it says for brotherhood.
- Hitchhiking: thumb out.
- Money sign: with thumb and two first fingers rubbing together.
- Patience: thumb and next two fingers together and the whole hand is raised up and down three times in a sign of wait, be patient.
- Talk to the hand: extending the open palm away from you towards the other person.
- V sign, peace: index and middle fingers lifted up in and open.
- Thumbs up: assent and approval.
- Thumb down: means hate it, don’t approve or kill the contestant in the arena.
- Shaka: sign of Hawaii salute, three middle fingers down, thumb and pinky up and waggle the hand.
