Not too many piano players, or even those cognizant how often they type with their pinky. Although I notice I am only using it on the SHIFT key in this post.

I'll take it under advisement.

Turns out my rim is bent by that pothole hit as well as the tire being ruined. I'd had that rim on for a grand total of one week, as I'd lost one in the fall and had put a temporary on while I searched for OEM. It took me forever to get around to having the new one installed, and one week later, boom. *&@&#@%!

it's not that i love my little finger, it's a combination of other things
1) what level of inconvenience will not having a pinky have on my day to day life?
2) what level of satisfaction am i gaining from the $ that would be giving to me if i had it removed?

fact of the matter is, 50k doesn't really change my life much (and i'm by no means rich, i'm probably going to tank a real estate deal over a $10k roof because i don't want to pay for it). it's a moderately priced luxury car. having 1 less digit when doing math changes my life a little bit more, hence why i'm at min 7 figures.

Hmmm typing would be a nuisance, I suppose.

Re: ***Official "It Lives, It Lives" Chat Thread***

The question becomes one not of "Is it worth ten mil to drink the toxin," but "Is my reputation worth a day of miserable sickness."

If you want more eccentric billionaires to approach you with bizarre prop bets, I should think the thing to do is take the toxin.

As a jazz guitarist, I would give up my right pinky for rather less than I would give up my left. Even fingerpicking, I hardly ever use my right pinky, but the left one is essential for interesting chord voicings. (This is why Django Reinhardt is, like, a hundred times more impressive than Jerry Garcia.)

I wouldn't chop off a finger for any amount.

Sounds silly but I mean it. Money isn't really stopping me from doing what I want in life. I don't have any desire to retire early. I'd rather have a complete and normal body than anything else.

To be fair, Jerry did finger picking on guitar and banjo without a middle finger. While I know little about finger picking, middle finger is useful.

Django was on another level, though.

You guys are gonna feel like morans in 10 years when I buy a prosthetic pinky which also serves as a lighter and laser pointer, and all for 1/50 of what I won.

FWIW I dont even smoke or use laser pointers, but itll still be awesome.

You live in Asia so you smoke at least half a pack a day whether you like it or not.

I thought the same thing Alan. Right pinky is expendable, left pinky is essential.
