Do you crack your knuckles?

I do. Each one at the fist and then each joint in the fingers (sideways).

And, one of them now hurts

You guys?

As much as humanly possible.

There's nothing like a good *CRACK*.

I crack other people's knuckles. $35 an hour. I don't work weekends.

I can't crack my knuckles, but I do crack the two joints on my fingers.

I also crack my toes, and my back (a lot). All it takes for me to crack my back is to arch it.

I crack my knuckles constantly, and I can get the pinky toe on my left foot to crack any and everytime I want it, just by flexing my foot.

I do. I wish I never developed the habit.

They crack less frequently then they did 25 years ago, and the knuckles are somewhat mis-shapen - fatter in the middle than they should be.

Cracking my neck is worse...it used to be really easy, but now I can only get a few...I miss the days it was easy, but like I said, I wish I never started.

Me too. I just have to pull my shoulders back and twist and it pops all the way down.

I pop my fingers, toes, neck, back, and sometimes I can pop my ankles. Feels great.

Just my thumbs on occasion. Sometimes the joints feel kind of weird until I do.

I hate the sound of people cracking their knuckles.

But then, my girlfriend does it.

And she's as cute as a truckful of buttons.

Ergo, when she cracks HER knuckles, it sounds cute.

I'm so conflicted...

I crack my knuckles at least once a day and for kicks, I can also crack my jaw although my dentist tells me that it'll lead to soreness.

I crack my knuckles all the time. Also my neck, back, toes, ankles, knees, jaw, thumbs, and finger joints (I think that's it). I'd like to go to a chiropracter sometime and just tell him to crack every bone he can.

It drives my step-mom crazy, so I try and do it whenever I see her.

Yep. Knuckles, left knee (right doesn't crack), ankles, back (I just have to arch it, my fiancee requires my assistance to crack her back), wrists, elbows. Feels so much better after I do it.

My grandmother used to tell me years ago that it was bad for me and would lead to arthritis.

I remember reading somewhere, maybe in those Imponderables books, that the cracking sound is the noise the escaping gas makes when you free it by cracking. No idea if this is true.
