    A good riddle is timeless. I will reserve judgement on whether this is one of them.

    OK, let's play along... Going by the text, it has to be her hand, and it has to be a finger of her hand, and she has to be cutting it ... only way is - get a photo of her hand and slice a finger off in the photo.

    It doesn't say she sliced off her own finger.

    What famous aviator was never invited to birthday parties?

    there's a species of banana grown around here called Lady Fingers. A bunch of bananas is called a hand. If you had a hand of 6 lady finger bananas, you could cut off one and leave five.

    Aren't some people born with six fingers on each hand?

    Maybe she was holding a finger that she chopped off of someone else when someone sliced off one of hers. Some families take their cooking seriously.

    I'm not American so it took me a while to work out the 6-point reference, but I got there in the end: it's Touchdown / Dutch Town.

    A harder one, I think:

    When we realize that patterns don't exist in the universe, they are a template that we hold to the universe to make sense of it, it all makes a lot more sense.
