the lian he zao bao article has been pushed back due to extensive coverage of the paper’s 85th anniversary.
i know, they did state it’ll be published on sunday… but what to do? will keep everyone posted. sorry if anyone bought the paper and wasn’t able to find the article! :(
full article will be published this Sunday 7th Sept in LIAN HE ZAO BAO! grab a copy! :)
this is really interesting! never really thought about this, and i don’t know if there’s some other logical “biological” explanation for this but i’m pretty amazed by this argument derived from a Chinese excerpt
Ever wondered why a wedding ring should be worn on the fourth finger? Follow the arrangement shown above….
Try to open your thumb, the thumbs represent parents, it can be opened cause all humans do go through sickness and eventually die. Our parents will leave us one day.
Close your thumbs, then open your second fingers, the fingers represent brothers and sisters, they do have their own families which is why they will leave us too.
Now close your second fingers, open up your little fingers, this represents your children. Sooner or later they too will leave us for they have their own lives to live.
Finally, close your little fingers, try to open your fourth fingers which we put our wedding rings on, you will be surprised to find that it cannot be opened at all. Because it represents husband and wife, this whole life you will be attached to each other!
Pretty cool huh?
