Dactylonomy - The art of counting on the fingers 4

And you can always pick out the AP kids in these situations - they're the first ones who start removing their shoes.

There's an 'art' to this. . .?

After the age of four shouldn't this be considered an 'art' no more?

If you can only make it to 10, I don't know if it qualifies as an art.

It sounds more like a type of surgery.

By using one hand as a scorecard and the other as a pointer, the Chinese used this method to count to 99,999. If you used your toes as the scorecard and your fingers as pointers, you could count up to 9,999,999,999. Although it would take 300 years to do it and your back would get awfully sore.
