    21.10 fingers of hands,10 fingers of legs and last finger is secret)

    ın my opinion, this is bullshit. of course, thumbs are fingers. your friend jogging you

    Fingers are: Thumb, index finger, middle finger, ring finger, little finger.
    Your friend is kidding you or lacking knowledge =)

    Murat: In English so called "fingers of legs" are called toes.
    Toes are: Hallux (also called big toe or great toe), long toe, middle toe, ring toe and little toe (also called pinky toe or baby toe)

    i got told this to but in my opinion it is still 10

    You and I together have probably 20!
