Good job guys, now instead of having toes and fingers that he could use, now he has useless stumps.
WTF?

Wow that`s trippy.

"what do you think they did with all those other toes?"

That`s a good question. D:

Now his hand is just weird and segmented, before he could have had the skill of more than average fingers.

Aww.. I was hoping he`d keep all of them then become a piano virtuoso and write music physically impossible for anyone else to play.

Agree with CapnAwesome

@feiku Really? You really don`t think he is going to have a hard time fitting in now... Yeah, maybe he`s not having a hard time "fitting in" his shoes anymore, but he will still be teased all through school. Now they can really add "you will always stay a freak" cause how he looks now is just really freaky! They should`ve lefted him alone...

Everyone who says "should`ve left him alone, he was awesome!" probably wouldn`t have thought so if they were in his shoes. People who appear different have a hard ass time fitting in. He probably would`ve been teased all through school and would have been very self conscious about his hands/feet.

Interestingly, if they had just separated the fingers, he would have probably been fine, not to mention a great swimmer! All the fingers had perfectly formed bones and nails, seems like the all worked well enough-now he`ll probably have problems the rest of his life, since the xrays showed his body was equipped to work with them all.

Ain`t having that many fingers actually useful?

Hey Shadow!

Check the blurb again. Look for words like `warning`, `before and after` and `surgery`. Just saying.

Happy Easter!

I can handle all that, but for some there should`ve been a "Warning, somewhat graphic", etc warning or something, just saying.

Sorry about the 31 fingers/toes; the site I found it on said it was 31, and I didn`t bother to count them.
And while he might have been an awesome musician, people get mocked for a lot less than that, and have killed themselves - I think whoever made the choice made the right one.

aww poor thing he was still really young when that surgery happened... i think i would have left his feet alone.. would have made an unimaginary swimmer! and they looked fine apart from the extra toes. Of corse i cant speak from experience as im not that childs parent and im sure they did what they thought was best.

They should have just separated the toes and fingers, and let him keep them all. When he gets stronger, imagine how many groceries he can carry at one time, or how well he can pleasure a chick.

You know, in times not long ago they would have left that baby out in the woods somewhere or thrown him off a cliff or something. Now, because of modern science and greater understanding of genetic mutation he can live a normal, healthy......GAH! WHAT THE HELL? DIE DEMON CHILD!

This makes me depressed. if he learned to have independent control of each of those fingers, he could have been the greatest guitar player ever.

He looked cooler with them, I think that unless they cause him trouble he should have kept them. How many people could do a high-seven? Go surfing and hang sixteen?

Quik2TheStab: She`s got 5.5 fingers and less toes. About the lovin` part, her girlfriend might object to that.
