In response to Phil’s recent comment that my arms resemble that of a T-Rex, a better, more sympathetic friend researched arm length ratios on my behalf. It seems that your arm span (fingertip to fingertip) is supposed to be approximately the same length as your height. Usually people are within a half-inch to inch or so. Actually, she’s been accused by her husband of having T-Rex arms and was looking to end a 25-year old disagreement.
So I took some measurements tonight, and it turns out that Phil was wrong.
My height is 69 inches and my arm span is 69 inches.
I may have Popeye arms, but I don’t have dinosaur arms!
Unfortunately, the measurements did not work out so well for my friend.
Her husband was right. She’s built like a T-Rex.
