Respectfully I must say that that's not for here but what I posted does address the question.

 

(Hint: there's no such things as clavicle extensions) :)

I just saw this morning that Justin Chernipeski and Doug Hajicek are combining efforts for a Legend Meets Science II documentary. Supposedly there is new scientific evidence to consider. I have learned not to expect too much from these films but it's encouraging that they are making the effort.

How would that prove it wasn't a guy in a costume?


*Sigh*

 

I think earlier you claimed I “oversimplified” what you had said. Thus far your time spent here on this subject? Is nothing but….

 

I highly suggest you take a step back and go read through the sub forums. You seem like a skeptic. That’s cool. Maybe some things will make you scratch your head. Maybe not. But at least you will come away a lot more informed on the subject than you are now.

 

And just a FYI? The PGF is a subject onto itself. With geometry and measurements and ratios and archaic camera equipment numbers and on and on and on. Bill Munns does a great job of studying the film. You may find his work interesting. You may not. Good hunting.

Not oversimplifying anything, just asking a question. Because it very much isn't settled whether it is someone in a costume and no matter how high quality a video is (the PG film is not), you cannot extrapolate measurements without a defined reference point for which there is none in the video.

 

I have of course read some analysis,and back and forth on the subject but I am by no means an expert on the PG film so I I will take your advice and see what some of the discussions here have to offer.

LMAO did you just unironically do that? I'm so sorry I'm challenging your beliefs. It must be so difficult for you.

True, but intramembral ratios CAN be determined and compared to norms. That's what they are for and are used all the time. Patty has a height to shoulder width ratio of 2.32. Average Human male is 3.87. It means IF Patty was 7' tall, her shoulder width ratio would put her shoulder span at 36 inches.  Average 7' Human male? Not a body builder? 22".

 

Ratios work as long as the same scale reference is used in all criteria whether it be inches, millimeters, feet or meters. Didn't really want to get into this but, for where the discussion is right now, it may help some.

How could you actually deduce intramembral ratios from a grainy/blurry/shaky video? Giving the benefit of the doubt though a costume would still confound those measurements.

 

Also are you sure those figures are correct? I'm 5'9 and my shoulder width is 22". Though I was a carpenter for 2 or 3 years.

Stop. You literally called me pathetic earlier and he just "sighed" at me, was that not condescending?

Since you seem to be a self-ascribed expert about extrapolating measurements, can you tell us your opinion of Gigantofootecus' photogrammetric analysis of Patty's ASH ratio?

Lol, now you're the victim here. Heh!

 

What I referred to as pathetic was your admission of "I'm very much for ACAB, but......"

PLEASE! Go take this to the PGF thread and debate THIS! Thank you!
