Touch your pinky to your thumb. Here’s what it means if your tendon raises up

Post by eddie on Fri May 19, 2017 4:17 pm

If you’re lucky enough to have a Natural History museum in your area, then you have the ability to see many fossils and remains of animals that are meant to portray various evolutionary advances over their time spent on earth, including humans.

If this is not this case, don’t worry, you’re not out of luck at all! In fact, you just may have the most fascinating living specimen riddled with antiques of its evolutionary past with you at this very moment, your physical body!

Your body is riddled with natural relics!

Think about all the things on our body that we actually don’t need anymore! For example, body hair. With clothes even the “goose bumps” that appear on our skin are minor irritations; as opposed to our ancestors who needed body hair for warmth in conjunction with goose bumps to increase the surface area on their skin in order to retain heat!

From remnants of a third eyelid, to the useless wisdom teeth in our mouth that we no longer need in order to eat-there are numerous antiques that our human body has hung onto! However, that is until recently when it has come to be known that a particular tendon that was useful to our ancestors who swung from tree to tree is not found in some people.




The “tendon of the hour” so to speak is the palmaris longus! It is located in your forearm and, if you have it, is easily discernable by placing your palm face up, bending your wrist, and then closing your fingers! You will see it rear itself at the base of your wrist!





So who doesn’t have the tendon? Well evolution takes time!

Of course, 10-15% of people today no longer have this particular tendon, and are none the worse for wear! If you are of the 10-15% you are on your way to evolution, and if you are still with tendon, well then you have learned a little about your ancestral past without having to purchase that ticket to a Natural History Museum!

Perhaps this just might be the perfect Segway in conversation to an invitation towards an education outing or perhaps it’s a great way to get children interested in Natural History! Do you have the tendon? Do your friends? What an opportunity to find out!

I have one. Do you?

Interesting, as i wonder if ethnicity plays a part here.

Whether this stems from my Maltese/Sicillian or Irish side.

Be interesting to see if Brits all have this or not????

They often use this ligament in surgeries now. It's actually not needed.
I can't look at mine too long....makes me a bit queasy.

We are an evolutionary advancement Rags   Cool

Actually i know some people who are born without wisdom teeth. I sadly had them, so its not just this but other things where humans are now not born with.

It does not mean much to be honest anyway.

It just means that the 15% are surviving now when the wouldn't have with the past requirements for survival
Evolution is not always improvement
after all the pug is evolved from the wolf

the 15% are the genetically domesticated, ready to be slaves, having lost what is required to survive in he wild

lol, its a useless tendon, just like now as I stated many people are born without wisdom teeth

I think this more than anything eloquently shows evolution in motion

Yeah right on! I'm a wild girl swinging across rivers by that tree rope stuff and climbing the trees to save these ligement-less people from certain death. Cool
