I have gay hands...

Wikipedia is a great source of not-quite procrastination. You're not doing what you should be doing, but you're still discovering interesting stuff. I've become addicted to Wiki's LGBT Portal.

And I'm reading up on the (empirical) science of it all. Interesting, but mostly just statistical evidence, with limited value in real life. If you dig long enough, and run enough regressions, you'll always find some correlation. This "hit or miss" approach is the basis of fields like empirical finance, which is then subsequently used by investment banks to fiddle around with you hard-earned.

But reading this article from NYMag, I was struck by the following picture:



And the accompanying text:

The relative lengths of our fingers offer another hint: The index fingers of most straight men are shorter than their ring fingers, while for most women they are closer in length, or even reversed in ratio. But some researchers have noted that gay men are likely to have finger-length ratios more in line with those of straight women, and a study of self-described “butch” lesbians showed significantly masculinized ratios.


The masculine hand is the one on the left, the feminine/gay hand the one on the right. Of course, I had to check this theory out on my own hands. And, I happen to have gay hands.

This is interesting, I think I will try to do my own, secret, empirical research on this now. Check hands, and record sexual preferences. Can't be hard. I wonder if I reach the same conclusion: a study of this in Europe might give completely different results...

Once all the boxes in the most trying times.

Green stickers qr code practices are widely adopted by many organizations that
are permitted to produce stamps. In the early development stages,
comes with a 5 megapixel camera that allows you use images
from istickers qr code, iTunes, Aperture, and even throws in the
mix a grand loyalty to his favorite employee, Sullivan.

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any
problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My site has a lot of exclusive content I've either created myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my authorization. Do you know any ways to help protect against content from being stolen? I'd truly appreciate it.

We have a Dell 5110CN printer that was being used at our switzerland office
(different current.) We have actually since delivered the
printer to our Canadian workplace yet it will certainly not electric up.
I was told that we have to convert the voltage setting
on the power supply however i can not situate it.
Do you know where this change is on the printer?
