    I have to get 30 people to measure their hand spans on both hands, measure their thumb length, and get their favorite color.

    These images were taken directly from the professor's website. Obviously, most of you can't spread your hand like the picture or have four fingers. Hand span is taken from the tip of the thumb to the tip of the pinky with your hand spread out. Make sure you distinguish which hand it is in the post because sometimes the measurements are different. If any of you have a ruler near by, some spare time, and want to help me out, it would be greatly appreciated.

      As far as I know thumb length can not be measured uniformly and also I might have measured it wrong. Plus you should know that I've been playing guitar + piano since I was 6 so I think its normal for me to have a 8cm thumb lol.

      as an Asian with suspected genetic disorder, I'm highly uncomfortable of posting my results due to it might heavily skew your averages to the left. :neutral:

      I play the organ and the piano since my sixth and am still doing it now xD nice to hear someone else playing, but 8CM's is like, the length of a pencil or something of the like

      Again, I might have measured it wrong. Also 8 cm pen ? Don't have a pencil but they are almost the same length.

          Heh, I used a roll of ECG paper to get these measurements. It has a bunch of little 1 mm boxes that make up 5 mm x 5 mm big boxes.

          Left hand span: 22.5 cm
          Left thumb length: 6.2 cm

          Right hand spam: 22.7 cm
          Right thumb length: 6.2 cm

          Favorite color: Green

          Your sample size is 30 because of the central limit theorem?

          I'm also surprised you guys got more lengthy thumbs than I do. :[

            I don't really want to take another picture showing you how I took that picture, because if I do, you will ask how I took the picture of me while I was taking a picture of how I took that picture. Then I might have to take a picture of me while I was talking a picture of how I took that pic.. * insert blue screen of death here *
