What would offend me is if they think something so ridiculously small will offend me. If you're trying to piss me off I'd expect you to at least show a little effort.

Showing me their dirty finger nail is an insult towards themselves.

How could I be mad at it? Considering the origin story, it just means they still have their middle finger. Good for them

No, but if someone is deliberately giving me the finger in front of my face just to get my attention, I would be annoyed.

Nope just looks like an awkward gesture and unless accompanied by threatening behavior, it's easily ignored, As far as finger gestures go, pointing gets on my last nerve.


...yes, that kind of pointing.

Not really that much because I just look at the middle finger and I think that can't do anything to me. Words hurt more than a stupid puny finger

Nah, the number 4 (00100) does not really bother me, but what really gets me upset is the number 132 (00100 00100)!

Well, kinda.
Not really for the "f---- you" factor but it implies that this person is pointing out that you made a mistake either in general or in relation to them.
And everyone makes mistakes.
So it bugs me that they had the ego to thrust up their middle finger when they could have just coped like adults should.

I believe in a peaceful society regardless of reality. ;P

It depends on the context, obviously. For instance, I think people get much more pissed off at people flashing the finger when they're driving then in other situations.

Obscene gestures themselves mean nothing outside of context, but we tend to have uses for obscene gestures to communicate some kind of displeasure.

I mean we don't bite our thumbs anymore, but the intent of the gesture lives on.
