Apparently Size Does Matter

According to a new study on LiveScience.com the size of your fingers determines whether you're better at math than vocab stuff.

An except reads:
Kids with longer ring fingers compared to index fingers are likely to have higher math scores than literacy or verbal scores on the college entrance exam, while children with the reverse finger-length ratio are likely to have higher reading and writing, or verbal, scores versus math scores.

I decided to measure the size of my... umm... phalanges and found that both my wedding finger and index finger were the same size.

Unfortunately they didn't talk about this in their study, but I think they would come to the conclusion that if both your wedding finger and index finger were the same length you are perfect.

Why else would they be the exact same length?

So... how... umm... big is yours?

Hmm, my index finger is longer, just. Does this mean one day I really do get to be a writer instead of working in an accounting office? ;)

Also, if they are only minutely different lengths, what does that mean? Perhaps I am not perfect like you, but very close I would have to assume, right?

We'll make it so that if there's not a significant difference between the ring finger and the index finger you can be in the perfect group too Likalia... just.
