Foot Lineage

Roman Feet

I knit alot and this was recently posted in a thread about sock construction.

Now that I think about it, there's no reason that foot shape wouldnt be a regional thing. It's just something that I've never actually thought about
In case of rapture, can I have your car?

Awesome! I have Egyptian feet, I've always just assumed that they were standard issue feet.

I'm pretty sure it's right up there (or down there) with phrenology.

I have Greek feet. I'm half Scandinavian and a quarter Scottish, English, and German.

I don't know what the last 25% is. Maybe my mother's biological father was Greek.

Liz (ethnically half Syrian and half Scottish and French Canadian) is Roman with a bit of Egyptian. The Egyptian actually makes sense since some of her ancestry on the Arab/Syrian side traces to Egypt.
All right, I’ve been thinking, when life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade! Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man whose gonna burn your house down – with the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!
