I tore the ACL, miniscus and cartiledge in my left knee and had
recontructive surgery. A friend of mine who witnessed my surgery told me
afterward the the good doctor was making fun of me because my femur was
shorter than average and tibia was longer. Could it be that there is a
reasonably large variance amongst individuals? I can run pretty fast by the
way. At least I used to be able to before the surgery.
