    I have the finger dexterity of three toed sloth. The term "opposable thumbs" might as well not exist in my world. I love knots, but I can't get my fingers to co-operate. Figure 9 is wrap and zap for me. Even my ham hands can deal with that. But in reality, whatever floats your boat.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.
