Hands are perfect for eating peanut butter sandwiches (and later, a slice of pumpkin pie).
They're also good for taking photos, although I missed my target here. I took a walk down my street at lunchtime on Thursday. As I was walking, something ran right in front of me, maybe about ten feet. It was a deer. He leaped over this stone wall and stood there, staring at me. Finally, I lifted my hands to take the photo, and he ran away. I guess I'm lucky he didn't crash into me. :)
