Picture of the Day

December 16, 2014

The daily paper Helsingin Sanomat also produces a monthly supplement called Kuukausiliite, which basically translates to “monthly supplement.”

The December edition featured an article about Finnish swimmer Ari-Pekka Liukkonen and one page had a photo of his hand – life-sized. If you have never heard of Ari-Pekka before, know this – he’s a really tall guy – 2.08m or 6’10” to be exact.

The Little Miss and and I had a good laugh this morning when she put her hand on the picture. 😀

    Hi, how long is this big hand and fingers, can you measure these? I don’t live in Finland, so I don’t have this magazine.

      Hi, I don’t have that magazine anymore, but I can make a rough estimate for you and get back to you.

        Can you measure another Kuukausiliite issue?

        I estimated his hand to measure about 26-27cm in that picture.
