Here's a good shot of the thumb. I don't have any photos where I'm not drinking. I'm about 6' or 6'1"

BS, you suck your thumb too?

And Jsharr, your thumb isn't so short as it only looks short because it is so fat.


Running away.

Your thumbs are ok. It's the fingers that are too short.

Stumpy.

I just measured mine the same way you did. I'm 5'5" and mine is the same as yours.

You need another measurement - not height. Maybe length of pointer finger to length of thumb. My wife has a 4cm thumb - but her hands are a lot smaller. My thumb is about the same as yours, but I'm 5'8
