"Talk to the hand" (or "tell it to the hand") is a slang phrase associated with the 1990s. It originated as a sarcastic way of saying one does not want to hear what the person who is speaking is saying.
It is usually accompanied by the gesture of extending one arm toward the other person, with the palm of that hand facing the person being insulted, in the manner of the gesture to stop. Use of the phrase was noted to be a passing trend, as one author noted in advising writers against the use of quickly dated slang: "Slang is trendy. Last year every young person I knew was saying 'Talk to the hand'. Now no one even remembers 'Talk to the hand'".
The idea that the lengths of human fingers reveal so much stems from the work of evolutionary biologist John Manning, now at Swansea University in the United Kingdom. But the field he inspired has ballooned beyond what he could have imagined. More than 1400 papers in just over 20 years have linked the finger ratio to attributes such as personality, cognitive abilities, and sexual orientation as well as to risk of illnesses such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Researchers have even tried to use ratios gleaned from stenciled handprints on cave walls to determine whether the artists behind ancient paintings were men or women.
But the notion has also riled plenty of critics, who argue that researchers who rely on the 2D:4D comparison have been seduced by a simplistic, faulty measure. Some doubters contend that the difference in ratios between the sexes is an illusion resulting from men's larger hands or that the measure itself is statistically problematic. "I'm skeptical about every single finding involving that ratio," says physiologist and biostatistician Douglas Curran-Everett of National Jewish Health in Denver.
A German anatomist first reported in the 1870s that finger proportions typically differ between the sexes, but the observation remained a curiosity until Manning hauled the ratio into the spotlight in 1998. He was collaborating with colleagues at a fertility clinic in Liverpool, U.K., studying symmetry in the body, which some researchers suspected was connected to hormone levels. "I had a vague recollection that I'd heard about that sex difference" in finger ratios, Manning says. The disparity suggested a role for certain sex-related hormones. When he and colleagues measured finger ratios for patients at the clinic, lower ratios in men's right hands correlated with higher testosterone levels.
Manning, who has written two books and more than 60 papers on the ratio, didn't expect that his findings would have such an impact. But the measure caught on. The idea that one number reveals so much about us is irresistible, notes statistical geneticist David Evans of the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, who has studied the genetic basis of finger ratios. "Whenever you give a talk on the 2D:4D ratio, as soon as you mention it, everyone starts looking at their hands."
The studies build on subtle differences. Although the finger ratio is usually smaller in men, the gap between the sexes is small. In the BBC internet study, average right-hand values for men and women were 0.984 and 0.994, respectively. Moreover, the distributions for the two sexes overlap, and the average ratios vary widely depending on subjects' geographical origins and ethnic backgrounds.
One high-profile use of the finger ratio has been to examine sexual orientation in women. Researchers have suggested that hormone levels early in development influence which sex people find attractive and that higher levels of testosterone and other androgens circulating through a female fetus might increase the odds of her being a lesbian. The hypothesis has been contentious and hard to test. Breedlove and colleagues thought finger ratios might yield new evidence, so in the early 2000s at street fairs in the San Francisco Bay Area in California, they "began asking people questions and Xeroxing their hands."
But for now, skeptics and advocates of 2D:4D ratios seem to be talking past one another. Researchers who rely on the ratio aren't publishing their studies in Hormones and Behavior, but they are publishing. More than 20 papers using the digit ratio have already come out this year.

In the latest episode of The Ongoing Transformation, Matthew N. Eisler talks about the complex history of electric vehicle development and adoption, how a powerful metaphor invited new players into car manufacturing, and what the electric car revival might mean for the built environment.
Using the latest treatments available, both hand specialists treat tennis elbow with a minimally invasive technology called Tenex Health TX. This includes treatment of chronic tendon pain, combining ultrasound imaging.
Talk to the Hand works well with multi-hitting cards like Flying Sleeves, Bowling Bash, Tantrum, Ragnarok, or Conjure Blade, as well as hand-returning cards such as Flurry of Blows or Weave. It also allows Wave of the Hand to apply its Weak debuff multiple times for extra defensive power.
"When play enters the classroom, it transforms everything," says Peyton, who began his teaching career in 1971 at an inner city high school in New Haven, Connecticut. "And when the play involves puppets, the power opens up and moves into the hands of the students."
Want to have your students interview Albert Einstein, or explore the character of a subatomic particle? How about illustrating the workings of the stomach? It's easy, using the "handheld language" of puppetry, says Peyton. "It's interactive and it's fun, and when you put one of these things on your hand, you're looking at an art form that is organic and alive. Because it incorporates so many different elements of behavior, it diminishes defenses, so kids feel safe and secure around it. In fact, they get very excited."
When Wallace discovered the Puppetools site, she says, she learned a range of applications for puppetry she hadn't dreamed of. "I started putting puppets into the hands of the children, and started to use them for behavior modification, and it absolutely changed my class," she adds. "The best thing is that you can make pretty much anything you want based on the paper-hinged puppet, because, it's just construction paper, scissors, and glue. When I do a new unit, I invent the puppets that go along with it, because they are such an accessible tool."
Speech specialist Toni Gross stumbled onto Puppetools when she was preparing to conduct a workshop on puppetry and language development. She ended up restructuring her workshop, and has been a regular visitor to the site ever since. "I'm really taken with the combination of the simplicity of the handheld puppet and the sophisticated Internet technology used to present the concepts," says Gross. "I've been teaching for twenty-eight years, and this has actually rejuvenated me. Now I've introduced it to other teachers, and they've become converts. I love the Web site, because it asks teachers to be themselves and get away from all the paper-and-pencil lecture work and go back to something that is very traditional, but so simple and playful."
After Marge told Homer that she is tired of Don't Go There and she had heard good things about "Talk to the Hand" they starting watching it. Lisa then came and turned off the TV and turned on the radio, where the kids of Springfield were talking.
As in the case of the computus manualis, 19 locations for notes on the hand were placed on the different joints of the fingers, but as the hand was used to depict a twenty-note scale, one additional location was required, which was assigned to the reverse of the third joint of the middle finger. This is usually represented in the diagrams as an additional location hovering over the middle finger, as can be seen in this depiction.
The hand, the most portable device of all, was a powerful tool for symbolic representation, calculation, and mental processing in the Middle Ages, and indicates the presence of a comprehensive, but elusive, gestural vocabulary, the full meaning of which we can only guess.

From the author of Eats, Shoots and Leaves. "Talk to the hand, 'cause the face ain't listening," the saying goes.When did the world stop wanting to hear? When did society stop valuingbasic courtesy and respect? It's a topic that has been simmering foryears, and Lynne Truss says it's now reached the boiling point. Takingon the boorish behavior that for some has become a point of pride, Talk to the Hand is a rallying cry for civility.When did "please" and "thank you" become passé When you call a"customer service" number, why does the burden of deciphering theautomatic switchboard fall to you (and where are the real people, whenyou, the customer, need service)? Why do people behave as if publicspaces are their own chip-strewn living rooms? Perhaps mostimportantly, how has it come to be that we are not allowed to object?Call someone out on rude or disrespectful behavior and you're likely toget an "Eff off" or worse. In a recent U.S. survey, 79 percent ofadults said that lack of courtesy was a serious problem. For all ofthose fed up with anti-social behavior and suffering in silence,realize that you are the majority! Talk to the Hand is a colorful call to arms - from the wittiest defender of the civilized world. 2b1af7f3a8
