Finger sex

BBC has an article called Bad driving 'linked to hormones'. It reports of (yet another) research linking testosterone and spatial skills. Yawn.

Low testosterone levels are also linked to shorter wedding ring fingers, they say.


Wait a minute! How did this quote make it into that article? Because the researchers looked at spatial skills and ... finger lengths. They found out that the length of the ring and index fingers are good indicators for testosterone levels, fertility and lesbianism. And what does all of that has to do with driving:

He suggested skilled drivers may be those who are more practised at the activity. In addition, he said people with longer ring fingers may have dominating personalities and therefore do more driving.


Me? I'm going to start paying more attention to people's fingers before asking them for their digits.

"The extra testosterone also appears to cause the ring finger to be longer than the index."

Ring fingers are over rated. Mine fell off years ago and I haven't missed it all.
