How long are your fingers?
on: July 06, 2005, 06:28:19 AM
I just measured (using a ruler) my longest finger (3rd) and in both hands, it appears to be around 3.25 inches.   Also, my right and left 4th fingers are a bit longer than the 2nd.

well it depends on where you're measuring from. if i go from where the little knuckle thing is (that lump of bone that you can move from side to side-haha how weird does that sound) then it's about 9cm- what's that in inches?

Just a little over 3 inches and a half.

If I measure from the webbing between my 2nd and 3rd fingers, it is 3.5 inches.  Measuring from the top of my 3rd finger from the first knuckle, 4 & 5/8 inches.  And I still can barely span a 10th.
