So we all know that there's a lot of fucking up for length measurements--but what about girth? If I measure with a shoe string, I get like 5 1/2". If I measure with a piece of paper, I get more like 5". I've never measured with a fabric measurer. Do you think this could skew what is seen as the "average", whether in actual surveys or just people giving measurements with string-like objects around the house? Not everoyne has a fabric measurer, you know. A half inch is significant in girth--it's like a full inch in length.
