How can you live almost 59 years and not realize they are different lengths!
My hand folding is recessive - never knew that either!

my left pinkie is shorter than the joint
my right pinking is slightly above the joint
but I voted based on the top of my pinky finger,
I was confused with the whole under the nail thing
now I am not sure if I did it right?
funny thing to think about.. probably isn't true
I fold my hands the recessive way.. my left thumb goes on top.

I think that may be related to Turner's Syndrome, but I haven't really researched it.
I think this all is making me look at my pinkies too much!
But this curved pinkie comment made me wonder about a different angle: curved toes. My pinkie toes curve under the next toe, and the "ring" toe on one foot curves under my middle toe so far that my middle toe doesn't touch the ground when I walk! When I paint my toenails, I do them all, but seriously, you can barely see those three. The doctor was concerned about this when I was a baby and young child, but since I never had any problems with walking, that was the end of that.
So now I'm just looking at all of my digits too much!!
