Pruney fingers: A gripping story
Mark Changizi brings you this lesson from TED Ed all about pruney fingers. Why do we have such an odd anatomical adaptation? Is it simple swelling of wet skin, like a rehydrated sponge?
Well, that doesn’t make much sense, because we know that people with nerve damage in their hands don’t get pruney fingers. So there’s some sort of active process going on.
The current theory says that our pruney fingers are like rain treads on tires, channeling water away and helping us grip in wet conditions.
Mark Changizi should know. He wrote a paper all about this wrinkly research!
thats so cool omg

Do I know enough people who’d buy earbuds though?

Apologies for the terrible image quality - I’m lacking scanner access at the minute so I had to take these photos on my phone
I was reading hyperbole and a half’s blog entry explaining their experience of depression and decided to make another sketchy comic based on my experiences with anxiety, which is another mental illness I think people tend to misunderstand quite frequently
Hopefully this will be of use to some people - whether they suffer from anxiety themselves or if they just want to know more about it
I love this so much
