Breaking discovery expels true meaning behind pulling someone’s finger

When asked to, “pull my finger”, one would certainly hesitate knowing the undoubtedly unpleasant outcome. However, new findings link this common question to the disappearance of the Aztec civilization.

The Army of Awesome People archaeology team is raising a stink with their history changing discovery.

Creation of Adam

Whilst visiting the Sistine Chapel key information was identified in the Creation of Adam fresco. It has been determined that, in the fresco, God is explaining to Adam that by pulling his finger it will bring destruction upon any civilization – by simply having an individual pull Adam’s finger it would send nearby volcanos into a fury of eruption (this is where we get the modern interpretation of pulling one’s finger… it’s merely a different kind of eruption).

After God created Adam as a conquistador, Adam then set out to visit the Aztec Empire to participate in the Aztec’s Ullamaliztli – a famous game played with a large rubber ball (from a rubber tree).

Adam arrived to the Aztec civilization and immediately challenged a local in a game of Ullamaliztli. Adam played with vigor, respect and absolutely no previous experience. Adam embarrassingly lost the match, and not knowing that human sacrifice was a huge part of the Aztec culture, and that the loser of an Ullamaliztli game would be sacrificed, Adam convinced them that by pulling his finger their enemies would be destroyed.

Adam’s finger was pulled.  Volcanos erupted in angst. The Aztec Empire disappeared forever. The legend of pulling one’s finger lives on.
