Please pay attention to this fact — these are mostly not officially proven records, but claims of hitchhikers regarding their extremes. This list of records is for us — hitchhikers we should be happy for our colleagues, not to be envious! Feel free to add your own record sbut please do not make list longer than five records.
Ford Prefect a. While on Earthhe posed as an out-of-work actor until the Vogons arrived, when he revealed to Arthur that he was not in fact from Guildfordbut from a small planet somewhere in the vicinity of Betelgeuseand that he was not an out-of-work actor, but a researcher for The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy. In the bookFord was described as "not conspicuously tall" and with features that are "striking, but not conspicuously handsome" and skin which "seemed to be pulled backwards from the nose".
Asparagus urine. Some people have "hitchhiker's thumbs," which bend backwards with a large angle between the two segments phalanges. The myth is that there are just two kinds of thumbs, straight thumbs S and hitchhiker's thumbs Hand the trait is controlled by a single gene with two alleles, with the allele for S being dominant.
A thumb was outstretched in the circle of sixth-graders. It had a most peculiar shape, being relatively thin and normal near the base, and then suddenly capped off with a bulbous, short tip, reminiscent of a slightly flattened pearl onion. The thumb belonged to year old me.
The Thumb Variation Lab explores not only measuring in the metric system but also serves as an introduction to statistical analysis of data taken by a simple measurement from the human hand, as well as thumb genetics. This is also called hyperextension of the thumb. People who carry either one allele or two alleles for a thumb that is straight, or close to being straight, express the dominant allele.
Dermatoglyphic variations in five ethno-geographical cohorts of Indian populations: A Pilot Study. The Internet Journal of Biological Anthropology. The present study was carried out to understand the genetic relationship if any, among different Indian populations using classical dermatoglyphic markers in post-graduate students. Finger print patterns were collected on a white paper using a non-spreading blue ink-pad.
Almost everything on this page also applies to multichambers as they are an extension of the single chamber design. If you are interested in how to hold single chambered ocarinas on the high notes please see ' How to hold an ocarina on the high notes '. Holding an ocarina is straightforward, but there are a few points that you should be aware of. Ocarinas have one hole for every finger and both thumbs, which are labelled in the diagram below.
