Quite correct Chuck.
Many measurements came from the King , such as a foot, a cubit, (distance from outstretched elbow to elbow) A Span from outstretched fingertip to fingertip.It varied whenever a new King took over the measurements were then amended, hence the expression getting the measure of someone. As for the rule of thumb the thick ness of a rod would be more appropriately determined by diameter(?) of the male member in order to keep women in their placeand thankful for it,but times have changed since those bygone days,when men were men and women were glad of it.
your humble servant,

Bullshit. It's a myth that was created so that feminists can hit men
over the head with sticks as revenge. The term "rule of thumb" comes
from using one's thumb as a measuring device.

Which is why god created baseball bats to use on feminists. (Oh to be young
and energetic again!)
