I've recently become aware that I do this. It's very odd but I catch myself doing it all the time, even while wearing shoes. I have no clue when it started, but I would like to stop doing it if I can.

Anyone else do this?

It's cool, but I would like to stop because I am on my feet all day at work and it tends to have a fatiguing side effect on my feet after awhile because the tendons in my feet are kept taught all the time.

Of course being on my feet all the time over the years is probably what caused it to begin with so it now becomes a 'chicken or the egg' type of thing.

I do it all the time because I can crack my big toes by doing it.

I took the term from Die Hard when the guy on the plane told McClane to make "Fists with your toes" to relax.

I don't curl my toes, but I am very active in asking my friends to pull my big toe, then the next, and the next...nothing beats a good toe-cracking session. It's like a massage; always better when somebody else is doing it.

I am doing it now while reading this. I find it relaxing. I just came back from a long bike ride and it gets the tension out.

There wasn't a plane in Die Hard. Are you thinking of Die Hard II?

Hey Thomas,

In the very beginning of Die Hard, Bruce Willis is on a plane because he flew into LA to be at the X-Mas party. When the thieves take over the building, he is in the bathroom curling his toes amazed that the advice given earlier worked. Or something like that.Posted Image

Later,
Geo

Personally if a friend asked me to pull his toe....and the next...and the next...I'd be telling him to fuck off and go get a girlfriend or something because I ain't touching his nasty toes! I'm a friend but there are limits. Posted Image

Jason,
I must know, are you and your friends sober or drunk when this request of yours happens? Posted Image

Thomas,
i've seen Die Hard so many times i've memorized the script and can recite it on command. Indeed there's a plane in the opening of the film. Posted Image

My mistake. I'm most familiar with Die Hard With A Vengeance, then it's a crapshoot between the first and second movies.

Oh, well in that case I don't see.....wait....no....no, the "fuck off" rule still applies. More so in fact....indeed after sticking your smelly socks in my face I might be inclined to grab a metal ruler or a similar object and....CRACK!.....ahhhAAHHHHHHHH!!!!......"how'd ya like that FOOTBOY!?!?"...Posted Image
