    5 7/8" to 6" even, depending on looseness of tape (or abt 15 cm)

    When I measure with a fabric tape in inches it is exactly 5 inches measured loosely enough not to indent my skin. I have to have someone else measure in cm again because I got 12 cm last time I checked so sounds about right?

    Just a question/curiosity: Why is everyone putting inches in decimals? It feels weird to me - there are no decimals on a measuring tape when you measure in inches or feet, only the metric system is split into 10s so where are these decimals coming from?

    5" and a little over a half. So, that's, what, 5 5/8"?

    Why does this matter?

    6.75

    Wrist Circumference is directly correlatable to bone density, which dictates how much weight your body can move around before it starts exhibiting hindrances. Manny Pacquiao, for instance, has 8" wrists, and that's why he was able to fight from 100 lbs to 154 lbs and not slow down.

    Usually, thinner shouldered long armed people have the thickest wrists.
    Projection is ordinary. Person A projects at person B, hoping tovalidate something about person A by the response of person B. However, person B, not wanting to be an obejct of someone elses ego and guarding against existential terror constructs a personality which protects his ego and maintain a certain sense of a robust and real self that is different and separate from person A. Sadly, this robust and real self, cut off by defenses of character from the rest of the world, is quite vulnerable and fragile given that it is imaginary and propped up through external feed back. Person B is dimly aware of this and defends against it all the more, even desperately projecting his anxieties back onto person A, with the hope of shoring up his ego with salubrious validation. All of this happens without A or B acknowledging it, of course. Because to face up to it consciously is shocking, in that this is all anybody is doing or can do and it seems absurd when you realize how pathetic it is.

    OK, I posted here a few days ago, but then deleted it, for reasons relating to what @Jeremy said. But then @Pookie injected some reason into this thread, and I reconsidered. Here is what I posted previously:

    "7.25" I think I have small wrists for a man."

    Both wrists are the same. I cut a 1/2" wide strip of paper, wrapped it around my wrist, used a pencil to draw a line where the band overlapped itself, and measured between pencil marks using machinist's calipers (nerd alert).

    Pookie says that wrist circumference is related to bone density, and perhaps I have dense bones. Certainly, I spent a few years in a factory working as a machinist, and machinists pick up very, very heavy objects all day long, 10 hours a day, six days a week, and are constantly moving things, turning handles, adjusting blocks of steel, then heavy lift, tighten the bolts, pull the levers, repeat until you leave work, 10 minute break every two hours, no slacking or you're out. Constant stress on bones would tend to increase their density. Furthermore, people are surprised at how much I weigh, given my size and shape.

    One final note. I do think I have small wrists for a man. But I guess I'm comparing myself to the other guys in the factory. The lifers.

    I did the same with the piece of paper, but just tore the paper where it met, then measured. Then I did the same for my D lol.
