Learn Something New Every Day

Today I am hyp-mo-tized by learning of digit ratio, and all the physical and psychological effects attributed to it.

The linked article starts off with the disclaimer "Not to be confused with Benford's law about the frequencies of leading digits of numbers." Take a look at the Benford's Law article - it's pretty interesting too.

FWIW: Both the Bride and I have very high digit ratios: mine is 0.97, hers is a whopping 1.00.

Testosterone, in the womb, lingers,
Affecting the length of your fingers;
The literature states
There are other linked traits,
And some of them (ack!) are real zingers.

Love the verse Bob.

I guess in the end it's not the size of the finger that matters, but the ratio.
