Having the thumb on the same side as the fingers is considered a "false" grip and it is unsafe. The thumb should opposite the fingers. Just think of being able to grip a bar properly as what what separates us from the lower primates

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.
