    Oh wow, you don't even notice any difference unless you really look at them. I wonder if they're planning to have the 4 extra digits removed? Imagine the difficulty he'll have finding gloves :eek:

    This kid should learn to play the guitar or piano at an early age!

    His fingers are very well formed. Huh... And uniformly on all four quadrants is pretty amazing. I guess occasionally it would be kind of cool to have six fingers on each hand. :eek:

    Gloves and shoes might be a bit hard, though. :eek:

    I hope not, we should celebrate diversity more.

    Exactly my first thought.

    I think it's really cool, a bit like X-Men only more grounded :)

    I'd love to knit a pair of 6 fingered mittens!

    Mittens don't have fingers...

    I thought kind of the same thing. I was wondering if having six fingers opens up any "new" guitar chords.

    Buying gloves is not going to be easy for this guy.

    this bit concerns me though:

    So the hospital staff didn't notice?
    :eek::confused:

    So this is the kid who grows up to kill Inigo's father?

    Hmm... if I were ma or pa I'd double check that the baby really is a boy.

    It would be too, too easy for me to suggest this child is probably descended from settlers who arrived in the States from Lincolnshire, so I won't mention it.

    He's probably got 2 and they haven't noticed yet...

    This will definitely help his typing speed.

    He would have the best chance to be the world's unanimous International "Guitar Hero".

    They live in the Bay area, so gloves shouldn't be a big concern. For shoes, just go with wide sizes. Baby shoes might be hard to find, though.
