The Internet Is Just Now Learning About the Relationship Between Your Forearm and Feet...Did You Know? | 22 Words

There are a lot of misconceptions about the body, but one there's one in particular that's been around since as long as most of us can remember.

Is it true? Well, recently the Internet has put the theory to the test and found that, nope, not always.

Confused? We'll catch you up.

You may not have heard all of these to be true, but what about that first one?

If you haven't measured, does it at least sound right to you?

Remarkably, Chinese Internet users are just now learning about the supposed relationship between your foot and arm.

People are measuring on the social media site Weibo to see if it's true.

If you're wondering what sparked the sudden interest, it all came from a cartoon.


In the cartoon, the main character cracked an egg of knowledge on the audience with this fact that, surprisingly, they weren't aware of.

Now everyone's in a hurry to share their findings on social media.

I mean, we weren't wondering, but that's very interesting. Sort of.

It's being picked up by American outlets right now, so expect to hear more about peoples' forearms and feet.

(Whether you want to or not!)

So what does it all mean if your two body parts don't match up?

We hate to break it to you, but... doesn't mean anything. This is just for fun.

Mostly, if you're able to measure, just be happy that you're flexible enough to compare them side-by-side.

That's the real accomplishment here!

If you're already sick of hearing about feet and forearms...we understand.

You might want to stay away from social media for a day or two until this trend blows over. But if you're the type to get in on the fun, grab a ruler and see how you stack up!
