    I have never understood this either Brother Oldiesman.

    I have known grown men and women in their 30s and 40s who still suck their thumbs, but at least in privacy.

    My opinion is if you're ashamed enough to hide it, you ought to be ashamed enough to STOP IT.

    Heck, I can't stand seeing a child past the age of 2 sucking a thumb, much less a grown-up!

    true; not pretty.

    but i'd wonder if it might be some sort of an indicator of insecurity? really, given our state today, i would think it could be said that we are insecure - wondering what's going on, where it's gonna go and how the crash, (societal, not economic), is gonna go down.
