Okay, so my wife and I just had a huge arguement. My wife and I were positive that everyone did it that same way that we did. So what do you do. Me: 1- index, 2- index/middle, 3- index/middle/thumb, 4- all fingers My wife never puts her thumb up until five. Then someone started with their thumb which just confused both and deteriorated the situation. Now factions are on the brink of war and it's a whole big mess. So how do you all do it? The whole thing started over the major disagreement of the representation of three, and it's not about counting but representing quantities. If you say "give me three eggs" and you hold up your hand, how do you do it?
