How many forgot that pack of chocolate fingers they have?

@ChristopherRandles Is today the day? Will I finally meet the Lizardman's Constant in person?

8 (2 thumbs aren't fingers) seems remarkably rare as a voting choice.

@ChristopherRandles That's because thumbs are fingers.

Where are my 11+

Thumbs count ?

Oh no what we're actually gonna learn from these polls is that manifold is ableist

@Joshua I'd rate it below baseline ableism. I think (and that's the reason I'm making this poll) that Manifold doesn't have a pretty good sense of how useful a finger is/how much of a disadvantage missing a finger is.

@CertaintyOfVictory Okay but we're gonna need another poll to see who has ten trillion dollars.

@Joshua We'll find the sweet spot.

@CertaintyOfVictory one thing that is obvious to me is that I'd use however much of the $10T I'd need to immediately get ten artificial fingers, and set aside a decent sum to keep improving them until they were indistinguishable. So I don't know how much this is about Manifold not knowing how much a disadvantage one faces due to missing fingers. I assume everyone else in the 10-finger crowd thinks the same.

@nmehndir How may I help you?

The poor polydactyly folks without an option

@ChrisEdwards I thought about it but decided that it's beside what I want to know.

@ChrisEdwards Besides, I don't really have a good voting option myself because I didn't include fractions. I have yet to decide whether I will round up or down.
