I can nearly put my palm of my right hand on my shoulder but only put my fingers of my left arm on my shoulder.

But my arms are the same length lol

Strange....

There is no way my palms are touching my shoulders unfortunately.

For the incapable of grasping such a concept;
Clearly you don't either. The girl in that photo doesn't have have her upper arm by her side, it's sticking out to the front.

I wouldn't expect you to understand that i had to move into a position where the webcam could see me properly whilst printscreening it.

I also hope that the girl part was a joke, or i might have to go cry myself to sleep.

I can touch my shoulder with my fingers, but not my palm. Fortunately, it's not something I feel I'm going to need to do often in life, so I'm not too worried about my lack of palm-to-shoulder ability.

The standard convention when demonstrating proper technique, is to actually do just that - show the proper technique.

What is the point in going "HI IDIOTS THIS IS HOW TO DO IT" and then proceed to show an incorrect way of performing it? I really don't care for the technicalities of your photo taking.

And yes, the feminine hairstyle , feminine jaw line, and lack of any form of masculine build lead me to believe A) you were female, B) that you found the picture on the internet, or C) it was your little sister.

This isn't a very accurate test of biceps size...

Different people have different arm length + different flexibility. I bet you would get completely different results if you did a survey of people in China (if the survey was large enough to represent averages accurately, because, clearly, not all Chinese people are the same).

There were people saying they ddin't understand what they meant, so i was giving a rouch idea of putting your arm down and hand on shoulder, if somebody couldn't follow the instructions and my photo they're obviously not smart enough to brush their own teeth.

I would be offended or care if i hadn't heard that millions of times.
