Correct on both counts.

They laughed when I sat down at the piano, but then I cracked my knuckles!

Why do all my joints have bubbles in them?!
 
2013-04-06 04:20:33 AM  
Knuckles, knees, most of my spine, toes, ankles, wrist, both elbows, and one side of my jaw....

I basically sound like a bowl of Rice Krispies in the morning :P

Back in high school, if we were taking a test in class I would slowly pop all of my joints while the room was quiet.  I could get my classmates to twitch.
 
2013-04-06 04:34:57 AM  
I can pop just about every joint in my body. Feels good, man.

/including the one between the pelvis and spine
//yes, it annoys the hell out of everybody
///feels good, man

I can pop my shoulder so loudly it sounds like a sonic boom. Mmmmmm. Then I do it again....
 
2013-04-06 04:43:47 AM  
Ok, how many of us have onions on our belts? :P
 
2013-04-06 05:09:11 AM  
Isn't that the whole point?

You know that bubblegum you swallowed as a kid? It got distributed to all your joints, and they chew it constantly.
 
2013-04-06 05:33:36 AM  
Never understood why that annoys people.

People who are annoyed by harmless little sounds annoy me.

There was this kid in my math class last quarter that cracked his knuckles constantly and it drove me knuckin futs. During the final I seriously considered knocking his dumb ass out and dragging him out into the hallway.

I do this all the time...however it is because the sensation is uncomfortable.
Once they are cracked, then that relieves the discomfort I was in.

It's not painful, so no meds are necessary.
But if I can be not distracted and discomforted by this...then others can deal with a friggin' brief sound.

/besides, I have to listen to them complain & yabber anyway...isn't this just as annoying??

But I bet you didn't once consider asking him politely not to crack his knuckles around you.
 
2013-04-06 06:46:28 AM  
I thought cracking your knuckles was normal, I had no idea people were annoyed by it.

He had already been warned several times.

Likewise. Used to be able to pop my sternum (ribs), too.

I have to pop my neck every morning or it will get stuck in the position I slept in.  Happened to me once and it took me the better part of a week to work it out and it hurt like a sumabish.  Sounds really loud but feels good, man.

fark your instructor. Non-crackers have no concept of the strength of the compulsion to do it or the discomfort involved in not doing it.

Right there with you; I wish I hadn't gotten so used to it during high school. Incidentally I was reading about this on wiki one time and that article said something about repetition making it worse over time, something about 'worn' spots on your joints...

/too lazy to look it up

Yeah, it's not teenage disobedience, it's that for some of us it feels good.  There have only been about 60 that I could pop but as I age it's dropped to about 50.
 
2013-04-06 10:38:09 AM  
I crack every finger, toe, wrist, ankle, elbow, and regrettably after a lifetime of martial arts injuries, my sternoclavicular joints and pubic symphisis.

/Yes, it is a joint.
//No, it isn't supposed to move.
 
2013-04-06 11:00:42 AM  
Ahhh...the pull and double-pop!  Then the press...harder...there we go, a triple!

/Just my knuckles
//Glad it displeases and discomforts other humans
 
2013-04-06 11:18:41 AM  
I crack about every joint im my body as a nervous habit. Drives the wife bananas.
 
2013-04-06 11:48:25 AM  
I crack my knuckles. Doesnt feel good just find it makes accurate movement of my fingers easier. It does have an unfortunate side effect of making the joints a bit weak when grabbing or lifting something.
Quick! Someone do the science!

Is Ric Romero giving out medical advice again?

Is this a repeat from 1997?

farking ignorant humans. Nobody learns, despite this being a culture where information is freely available.

Neat.  I'll just keep popping my knuckles over here, and you can go ahead and do whatever it is you do that annoys me over there.
 
2013-04-06 02:51:33 PM  
So I'm honestly curious: for those of you who hate hearing people crack their knuckles, what is it about it that bothers you so much?  It doesn't sound much different from popping bubble wrap.

/if you hate popping bubble wrap, you are a horrible person

Everybody masturbates, so i think we understand the compulsion and discomfort.

i like to have my toes popped.  Too many years of martial arts have left my poor toes half crippled and it feels good if someone can pop them.  Other than that, I can pop my own hip joints and sternum with a little bit of help.  Actually, sex helps to pop things without me having to strain too much :)

Actually, the problem seems to be that people learn the wrong things.

I will pop my knuckles and toes then pop all my sons knuckles and toes when I get home and start relaxing with him
