    23andme gets it slightly wrong for me. My second toe is indeed a tiny bit longer than my first, not like Morton's toe or anything. We must have the same set of alleles for this.

    My second toe is not significantly longer, and the way they curl makes it almost appear as though the Big toe is longer or the same length. But when I press them flat, the second toe is indeed longer.

    "Greek" feet are actually assimilated Doric & Illyrian feet.

    I have that foot type and I'm not Greek.

    Of course they are: EVERYTHING worth having came from the Albanians and their ancestors!

    Do you have epic battles with the "Mad Serb" who thinks everything great came from Serbia. I'd pay to see it.

    Hehe, we might throw a few Greeks into the ring also :).

    My folks have done nothing really remarkable. But they did survive and boy they did! First the Persians on the way to Greece, then the Celts, the Macedonians under Alexander, the Romans, the Avars, the Vandals, The Ostrogoths, the Bulgarians, the Slavs, the Crusaders, the Seljuk Turks, the Ottoman Turks, the Balkan Wars, WWI, The aftermath of WWI and the exchange of populations between Greece and Turkey. Then WWII and the Greek Civil War. Not to mention the different plagues and endemic malaria and of course inbreeding.

    Let me pat myself in the back for my ancestors accomplishments but I am afraid I might pull a muscle or something. :)

    Comparing your feet to feet on old greek statues, is similar to comparing your face to royal faces on English stamps.

    Jensen,

    It was supposed to be funny.

    Sometimes we just fool around. :)

    My sister's third toe is the longest on her foot. Sadly, at least one of her children has inherited this unfortunate malformation. I attribute it to fallout from Three Mile Island, which occurred twenty months before she was born, and we are downwind from the site, and also one of her friends born around the same time suffers from 'Missy Foot', which is what I call the condition.

    No problem. When you get to know the "crowd", you'll know which ones just have a sense of humor, and, unfortunately, which ones just don't know what they're talking about.
