    I wonder about blondes having more hair than brunettes. I've got dark hair and lots of it.

    I don't think the thing about the thumb and nose is true.

     
  • At 2:50 PM, Blogger impworks said…

    Must resist urge to place thumb by nose and check. I know it's going to work because both of those body dimensions are golden ratio related to larger body part dimensions. Still resisting. Its not easy. I have an urge to scratch my nose and if I do I may just check sneakily...
