Hot Hands

Does Steve Nash have hot hands?

Science has made a discovery: if you’re blind and can’t see whether a man is attractive or not, hold his hand.  If his ring finger is longer than his pointer finger, you’ve got a winner.


Don’t believe me?  Check out this article called Your Hands Give Away Your Hotness.  I’m not a scientist so much of it looks like the typing of a squirrel with turrets syndrome, but it appears finger length is determined by testosterone received in utero and there’s a direct correlation between the finger ratio and perceived attractiveness.


Articles like this amuse me because, honestly, it’s so subjective!

Attractiveness is really hard to quantify and doesn’t come close to taking character into account.


Let’s face it, if the world revolved around attraction Steve Nash would be the biggest loser in history.  Instead, he’s a major NBA star and a generally likable guy.  I wonder what his finger ratio is??


My mom has always told me to be wary of guys with little feet.  She said it made them mean.  I have no knowledge of any backing to this statement and she also believes hummingbirds like to peck out the eyes of humans because they are shiny, but, hey, it’s family lore regardless and I hold wee-footed men at a distance even today.


Do you have any strange, non-scientific beliefs/rules to share?  I’d love to hear them!

      Ha! Lizard says he wants to create an iPhone app that makes people very, very unattractive. He calls it the antidote to beer goggles – take a picture of your interest and it will make them so unattractive you’ll back off before you do anything stupid… 🙂

    Since I was little I was always told that if your second toe is longer than your first, you are intelligent. So I would go around and ask people if I was super smart because my third toe is just slightly longer than my first. With that question i got two answers: makes you twice as intelligent, and just makes you crazy…I have learned recently the answer is probably the latter of the two!
