I Think Apart From Others

always have unique thoughts & ideas 203 People

    I have something really rare,

    I have simian lines. Look at your hand now. Most of you will have different hand lines to me. Most of you won't even know someone with hands like this. I read somewhere that 0.75% of people will have this! I'm unique! Yay!

    I'm an individual, and my friends recognise this. Like me they celebrate how we are changing, and becoming all we used to rebel against! That's what my friend Luc thinks.
