I’m in a field (don’t ask)
A man approaches,
we exchange glances and nod our hellos
He comes closer, raises his hand with his palm towards me and says
“Put your hand against mine”
Naturally i do as he asks and am introduced to the weird dead finger trick.
To feel the effect place your hand palm to palm with a friend (or if there isn’t one close a stranger in a field)
Now take your other hand and gently slide your thumb and forefinger up and down the touching fingers.
Most people experience a weird sensation as though half their finger is numb. It’s the person rubbing who feels the effect, so make sure your new field friend gets a turn.
