I was in my english class today and my teacher said that in Shakespearian times if you bit your thumb it was the equivilent of flipping someone off, does anyone else find this strangely coincidental?

No, because that's a habit. You have to flick you front teeth, from what I understand. Even in the R&J movie they do it wrong.

No, from the context of the scenes it comes off more as a thinking gesture as opposed to flashing the bird at Kira.

Well, seeing as Death Note doesn't take place during Shakespearian times. xD

Possibly.... but it could just be a bad habit he has.

I use to suck my thumb until i was 9, but i had to get braces for 2 years after cuz my teeth were messed up. ;)

i dont think so, its a habit, he bits his thumb when he is thinking reallllly hard, or he eats some sweets!
