Dearest Chums,

see this arm ?



Nice eh ?


Now check this leg out !



Also nice....


If I was to exchange my arm with my leg ...would my fingers feel like toes and my toes feel like fingers ?......Is it my brain that controls the nature of the feeling or does my toe feel like it is because it has to feel like a toe.......and vice versa regarding my fingers ?

whajafink ?


Hugs and shmishes

I think your brain would be confused, but your limbs may well adapt! LOL

You could ask someone who has had their big-toe transplanted to replace their missing thumb ...

[Assuming the transplanted toe has sensation, then I think it would feel like a thumb]

Thats interesting.. I bet that would work well in the place of a thumb, considering I have seen some pretty long big toes!
