today i learned – fri 22nd june 2018

my girlfriend actually inspired this one … not sure whether i should read anything into it? 🤔

#tdil the reason why wedding rings are placed on the ring finger 💍

think about it – before the ring finger was known as ‘the ring finger’, why did people suddenly decide that wedding rings should deffo go on ‘that’ finger? 🤷🏻‍♂️

turns out that the answer can be found back in the days of the romans 😱 #oldschool … and kinda depends on their limited knowledge of science 🙈

anyway, they decided that the fourth finger on the left hand should be the ring finger because they thought that it had a vein that ran straight to the heart ♥️ #cute (they don’t specify why there isn’t one in the right hand 🙈)

they actually called that vein the ‘vena amoris’ or ‘vein of love’ 😍 which is literally one of the cutest things ever 😅

these days, we obvs know that the left hand doesn’t house a vein that goes straight to the heart 🙄 but meh, who cares?! 🤷🏻‍♂️

i really rather enjoyed this one 😊 deffo should have saved it for valentines next year 😂

bye peeps 😘 #tdil
