The latest and greatest Bond girl (Gemma Arterton) would appear to have six fingers on each hand. Take a look at this picture and decide for yourself.
I think it’s pretty neat. There was an episode of “The Simpsons” in which a scientific reports had concluded that in a thousand years, the normally eight-fingered residents of that world (4 fingers on a hand) would each possess ten fingers (5 per hand). I wonder if that reflected a similar study in the real world, which may have concluded that in a thousand years all humans will be born with six fingers on each hand? That would be pretty cool.
If we would, indeed, evolve to that point over time, then isn’t it interesting to see someone who has already crossed the evolutionary divide? Perhaps this new Bond girl is a time traveler in disguise.If you enjoyed this post, I'd be delighted to have you as a subscriber to my RSS feed.
