You have mentioned in a few emails now about the confusion of numbering toes and fingers.  I am confused about where the confusion lies.  1 through 5.  In your original email, you showed that you number them the same as everyone else; 1 through 5, starting with the thumb or big toe.

Was is recently revealed that Klingons count fingers and toes starting with 0, like Human computer peripherals?  Did I miss something?
