Are your left and right hands the same size?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Dave Grossman, Jun 27, 2004.


  1. My left hand fingers are about 1/8" to 3/16" longer than the fingers on my right hand. Kinda makes sense.

    How about you?

    Mine are the same size, but my right hand is a little more muscular because... um... I play bass alot. Yeah, that's it.

    I hear that's caused by playing too much bass.

    Well, I got them at the same time as a matched set - as far as I can tell, they are the same size.
    I've never had a scientific survey done to measure each digit to the exact micrometer, but for all practicle purposes - yes, they are the same.
    If I fan my fingers out, I can stretch a bigger gap between the fingers of my left hand.
    My hands are exactly 1/6 the size of Gia's boyfriend's hands. Now those two have both got some big mitts!

    Whoa.... I just noticed something really weird!

    My whole life everything on my right has been more....

    More hair, better hearing, bigger etc....

    Now my left hand and feel are bigger than my right!

    ::goes to check the rest of his physiology::
     
  16. It's funny, I just noticed that my right hand thumb is about 5% larger than my left-hand thumb. I'm just a freak!
