    If you must know, it was decided by my parents before your parents were born, though I'm not sure that I'm exactly what they had in mind. But they got used to me, and they learned a lot about music. You might too, so try to put up with me. A sense of humor helps.
    indeed, hence the " " (honestly, I enjoy a lot of your posts. tame quibbling here and there over intellectual concepts is not something I am likely take personally)

    I need your opinion there. I am maybe an exception. I am a lyric Coloratura Soprano, but my physiology is different from the usual.
    I have a long neck, i am tall! 1,76 m (5,8 feet) , and slender. Surprisingly although i have a high pitched voice, i have low notes too, that are quite strong. i have reached from C3-C7, although a E3 and a A6 are secure. I have always have difficulties though to connect that voice which is big ranged and flexible. In a seminar the teacher said that my long neck and height is a problem (maybe for my voice type) Any clue?

    I think a large build usually can be correlated to longer vocal chords: just take a listen to NBA players in their interviews, the proportion of them having a bass voice is much larger than that in general population.

    But yeah, it's fun. Sort of like horoscopes are fun. They told me I'd find romance last week. Nothing about the cheekbones, though. I require high cheekbones.
    Physical fachs have been around for quite a while in the age of HD broadcasts.
    For cheekbones all you need is some contouring and highlighting
