I was listening to John B. Wells as he interviewed Jim Marrs... It was a good broadcast and many of the things on ATS were discussed.. One thing that
was said, that I was unaware of, is the middle finger gesture, which today is associated with F.U.
Actually the middle finger standing tall came from when the French used to catch an English long bowman. In some cases (when they did not kill him)
they would cut that digit off and send him back rendering him unable to shoot his bow. The gesture arouse by the English giving the finger to the
French showing they could still shoot; basically saying by hand gesture "come and get it" !
I thought it was a good story and have no idea if it is totally true or just and old bowmans tale... either way there you go...
