Wow, my nails look great!
They really do. Is it my diet? The cuticle oil? It's probably all the buffing. Anyway, not my point, but I was looking at my fingers after reading an interesting article in USA Today about a theory that fetal exposure to testosterone in the womb may be reflected in finger ratios in adults. There's some correlation between this ratio and athletic ability, musical ability, and even susceptibility to osteoarthritis. What interested me was that men typically have a longer ring finger than index finger (right, below), and women usually have the reverse, with the index finger being longer, or at least equal in length with the ring finger (left, below). Mine are nearly equal in length, and the article says that is often seen in gay men (but, no, it doesn't MEAN you're gay....relax Republicans). How about you?
