Rules of Thumb

Do you have any rules of thumb?

I have a general rue of thumb when it comes to gaming, I always feel like £1 per hour of enjoyment is decent value. I don’t apply this metric to any other form of entertainment, but there we are, it’s just a rule of thumb.

1 thumb = roughly 1 inch

The first rule of Thumb Club is you do not talk about Thumb Club.
The second rule of Thumb Club is you do not talk about Thumb Club.
Third rule of Thumb Club: Someone yells “Stop!”, goes limp, taps out, the thumb is over.
Fourth rule: Only two guys to a thumb.
Fifth rule: One thumb at a time, fellas.
Sixth rule: No shirts, no shoes, fingerless gloves only
Seventh rule: Thumbs will go on as long as they have to. And the eighth and final rule: If this is your first night at Thumb Club, you have to thumb.

Sa Calobra?

it’s more accurate for off-road walking (and usually overestimates anyway) but naismith would put you at 2-2.5hrs to walk up sa calobra

This is a good rule but declining fitness means I now allow an hour for every 500m of ascent.

Correct form for a thumb war is to say “1, 2, 3, 4, I declare a thumb war” while your thumbs are already in position and they switch sides as you say it.

Bow and then tap thumbs together, like boxers touching gloves
