Here we go.


So the average hand length of a female is 6.77 inches. Of course, this is if you are measuring from the base of the palm to the tip of her middle finger. Which by the way is perfect for flipping catcallers off.


A redwood tree is 638 hands.


The Willis Tower is 2,575 hands.


All more hands than I’ve ever held in my life.

Certainly, more hands than I am holding onto right now.


The average height of a man is 10 hands.


The average height of a house is 44 hands.


That’s about the number of hands I need

When going through a hardship


Mount Everest is 51,454 hands.


Mount Rushmore is 10,147 hands.


That’s how tall I feel

When I hold your hand.
