    Question "Roman Feet, Greek Feet"

    If your distal phalange next to your hallux(big toe) is longer than the hallux, then you have what they call "Roman feet", if it is shorter than your hallux it is "Greek" according to statues sculpted in anicent times. So, as strange as this may sound, do feet have anything to do with sub-races?

    Oh then I guess you have what they call "Greek feet".BTW I do not have a foot fetish Anyway, I wonder why the sculptors of ancient Rome and Greece would sculpt the feet in a different fashion from each other?

    I know women have longer index fingers than ring fingers and men the opposite.

    I think I have Roman feet if I understood those terms correctly. My big toe is smaller in length than the toe next to it, is that having Roman feet?

    I have Roman, as does my dad. My mom has Greek, like my older brother. Me and my dad are lean, my mom and brother are "husky", well not so much my mom now.

    I have 'Greek feet' if I understand this correctly.
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream at night, in the dusky recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams, with open eyes, to make it possible.

    "E tutti si scandalizzano quando sentono dire: quel tale tipo di mammifero o di uccello ormai è sparito dalla faccia della terra, non lo vedremo più; è una grave perdita. Certo, si tratta di gravissime perdite.
    Ma non sarebbe forse più grave se sparisse una comunità umana?? --Bruno Salvadori

    Seven pictures of northern European males and seven pictures of northern African males were presented randomly via a computer screen to 82 Italian female undergraduates of the University of Padua, Italy.
    Each picture depicted a full frontal face with a neutral facial expression. Participants were asked to classify each picture as either northern Italian or southern Italian.
    On average, the seven pictures depicting northern Europeans were classified as northern Italians 81% of the time. The seven pictures depicting northern Africans were classified as southern Italians 83%
    of the time.
