One Tiny Hand One Huge Hand
Contest Directions: There's an interesting site called "One Tiny Hand" that featured photos of celebrities with one hand subtly photoshopped into an itsy bitsy hand.
Let's make things more interesting - take any celebrity and change one of his/her hands into a tiny hand, and change the other hand into a huge hand.

This contest is fueled by the following news: You decided to buy a computer. Therefore, first of all you probably ask for a frequency of the processor, and the volume of operating memory. What about input equipment? You are less interested in this point. That's actually not right! Meanwhile, a keyboard and a mouse (and, certainly, a monitor) are very important: as they are the devices you constantly touch at work with a computer, and they are those that first of all influence your health. So, you have a computer mouse in the right hand. We have too. But not all of us know that use of a mouse is hazardous to your health. Hands, wrists, forearms, shoulders - all of them can seriously suffer from a mouse. The danger, caused by a mouse and other input equipment, is not news for many people. They began discussions about "mouse problems" from the end of the 90's. The most known disease related to the use of a mouse and a keyboard is carpal tunnel syndrome – CTS, or it is also called the syndrome of carpal channel - SCC. Complaints and symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS): Uncomfortable feeling in a wrist, a palm and fingers of hands (in a projection of divergence of median nerve branches). Later fingers and struck palms become weak; also people feel numbness, pain and heaviness in the hand. Painfulness and numbness of the palms forced to wake up, because people do not control the position of the hands when sleeping. Awkwardness of a palm and fingers makes writing difficult, and an attempt to lift some more or less heavy object leads to a burning pain springing up in a carpal joint. Reasons of development and possible consequences. The specified syndrome is essentially an injury of a wrist. In order to clarify the reason it is necessary to understand anatomy and physiology. The wrist is a joint of the radial and elbow bones (forearm bones) and eight bones of the hand (small bones of a palm). The median nerve and 9 tendons of the muscles of a hand pass through the carpal channel - a tunnel (where the tunnel syndrome name originated from). The median nerve provides sensitivity of the surface of the thumb, index and long fingers from the palm side, the surface of the ring finger turned to a thumb, and also the back side of the tips of the mentioned fingers. The median nerve innervates the muscles providing movement of the thumb, index and long fingers. Thus, the median nerve carries out two functions: provides sensitivity and movement. The tunnel channel is very narrow. The median nerve is squeezed, that is jammed there. So it leads to disorders of sensitivity and movements of the hands. Swelling of the tendons passing close to the nerve, and also hypo-stasis of the nerve can be the reason of jamming. In its turn it violates blood circulation, feeding of tissues and that even more increases their hypo-stasis and squeezing in the tunnel. All specified symptoms and complaints are resulted from a constant static load of the same muscles, a lot of monotonous movements at work with a mouse and excessive bending of a wrist. In general the human organism always reacts with pain to long-run constant loadings. It is known long ago that those who engaged in the manual painting of carpets or embroiders making patterns on a fabric have the same symptoms as operators working with a mouse. A person who has tunnel syndrome developed, loses working capacity for several months and even years. It should be also taken into account that the feeling of pain and discomfort in hands can be caused not only by the jamming of the median nerve, but also by injury to the backbone (osteochondrosis, hernia of inter vertebral disks), when the nerve going from a spinal cord to hands is damaged. Hand muscles: The muscles of a hand form a complex of about 33 muscles. The majority of them are located in the forearm and join the phalanxes of the fingers by tendons through some joints. Two groups of muscles form two eminences on the palm surface of a hand: thenar — the thumb eminence and hypothenar— the little finger eminence. The muscles of the hand are located only on the palm. They form three groups: medial (on the medium part of palm surface), the group of muscles of a thumb and group of muscles of a small finger. The great number of short muscles on a hand is caused by a fine differentiation of movements of the fingers. Hand bones and joints: A hand is a distal part of a top extremity which skeleton consists of bones of the wrist, metapodium and phalanxes. A wrist consists of eight short spongy bones located in two rows, by four in each row: top row: navicular, lunate, triquetrum, pisiform; bottom row: trapeze, trapezoid, capitate, hamate. The bottom ends of the radial and elbow bones join to the wrist bones, forming a complex wrist joint which makes possible rotation to all three axes. The bones of the bottom row join the bones of the top row at the top, below — metapodium bones, and also among themselves, forming stiff joints. Finger Bones: Each finger consists of three phalanxes: proximal, medial and distal. The first finger having only two phalanxes, proximal and distal, makes an exception. Proximal phalanxes are the longest, distal - the shortest. Each phalanx has a medium part — a body and two ends — proximal and distal. The phalanx basis is on the proximal end, and the phalanx head is on the distal end. There are articular surfaces on each end of the phalanx for joining with the next bones.
