Don’t try this at home.
But, apparently, if you’re extremely bored, there’s a fairly simple way to break your thumb ligament. You hold your hand like this…
Do it enough, and, according to this graphic, you’ll break the ligament. Why, you ask, would anyone ever want to do this?
Well, it’s the internet, so of course some people tried it. They’re claiming that it works, and we’ve got some pictures. Be warned, though: these aren’t for the feint of heart. Ready?
Therefore, we can’t really tell whether this is legit, or if the trend is trying to trick other people that you broke your thumb ligament.
They all show thumbs in various stages of distress. Sound like fun?
To be fair, though, if you actually do this, you deserve whatever happens to you.
Leave it to the internet; people are actually breaking their thumbs for entertainment.
But if you do, be sure to post the pics online. After all, the rest of us need entertainment!
