Hand supermodelDec 08 2010

Ellen Sirot is one of the world's top hand models. CBS News interviewed her a couple of years ago:

Everything I do is to protect [my hands] from being in any jeopardy or any danger in any way. So for me, that means no cooking, no cleaning, no taking out the garbage, no opening cans, no opening windows, no opening doors, no gardening, no sports...

This is a really strange and fascinating video...Sirot is constantly performing with her hands but it's also like she hasn't got any hands, not functional ones anyway. She holds them like atrophied T. Rex arms! (via @zagata)
