I just discovered why its easier for me to palm a basketball with my left hand than my right hand.  My left thumb is a half inch longer than the right one.
 
I need to check where I got these fact from, a half inch extra times three means a lot on sierra snowboard.com bragging rights.

Ok, just took it a little further and my left arm is an inch longer overall.....
 
So I got 2.5 inches on the right thumb and 3 inches on the left thumb.

Ok when we take the measurement what part of the thumb are we starting at. This could make a big difference.

"The average man's erect penis is three times the length of his thumb."

the whole thumb?  that would mean im "hung like a horse"

or are we talking just the second bone?

neither are correct at all.
