The index finger, pointer finger or forefinger is the second digit of a human hand, located between the thumb and the middle finger.
It is usually the most dexterous finger of a hand and is usually used to point to things (a direction, an object etc.), thus it is also called the pointer finger.
The middle finger was called the index finger in earlier times, since it was usually the longest digit and was therefore used to flip through index cards.

 Wendy's diner finds human finger in her chili
He said the finger had been cooked at a high enough temperature to kill any viruses, including hepatitis or HIV, and that it was very unlikely that she will suffer any health effects from her experience, aside from psychological trauma.
Since all of the workers at the restaurant were found to be in possession "of all 10 of their fingers," health inspectors assume the finger likely entered the food chain as a result of the manufacturing process, according to county Environmental Resources Director Ben Gale.
In addition, authorities may be able to obtain a fingerprint and DNA from the finger to identify the person.

 SANTA CLARA COUNTY / Was finger cooked along with chili? / Officials say it may have been added later in the process
The human finger found in a bowl of chili at a San Jose Wendy's might not have been cooked with the chili and could have been snuck in later in the preparation process, Santa Clara County officials said Friday.
It had been widely reported after a news conference Wednesday that the finger had been cooked with the chili, but officials acknowledged Friday -- after questions were raised by Wendy's -- that no conclusive evidence had been found.
Fenstersheib said that even if the severed, 13/8-inch finger segment had been slipped in after cooking, the risk to Ayala -- or any other customers - - would be almost zero.

The American Idol judge is the latest star to be screen-grabbed in the act of a reputed obscene gesture by the Drudge Report.
The Website said Cowell's extended middle finger "came during a heated exchange with fellow judge Paula Abdul." A check of the tape, though, shows Cowell's offending digit came into camera view on two occasions, neither of which involved Abdul, and neither of which involved a "heated exchange."
Cowell's active paw drifted into dicey middle-finger territory once as he rested his head on it while listening to contestant Fantasia Barrino sass him for urging her not to "become old." The finger made one other appearance--in the form of an apparent scratch--during an innocuous exchange with teen crooner John Stevens.
