Kinda interesting headline on WebMD last week - is there a correlation between relative finger lengths and athleticism? They say that "for women whose second and fourth finger lengths translated into a low ratio, there was greater likelihood the women played sports at higher levels, the researchers report. A low ratio would result if the index finger is shorter than the ring finger."
First of all, terminology question: isn't the index finger the first finger, the middle finger the second, the ring finger the third, and the pinky the fourth? Don't remember that from Aberdeen.
Second, a negative number is a "low ratio"? They need to be a little more clear/precise, here.
