    Do you have pronounced brow ridges? Which regions or ethnicites have more pronounced brow ridges?

    A brow ridge is :

    The supraorbital ridge (or brow ridge) refers to a bony ridge located above the eye sockets of all primates. In Homo sapiens sapiens (modern humans) the eyebrows are located on their lower margin.
    Other terms in use are:
    eyebrow bone
    supraorbital arch
    frontal torus
    supraorbital torus
    superciliary ridge
    arcus superciliaris (Latin, meaning "superciliary arch")
    supraorbital margin and the margin of the orbit
    To illustrate with an example

    Personally i have pronounced brow ridges and i don't like it. According to old school division of races Australoids have the most pronounced brow ridges followed by Caucasoids, Negroids and Mongoloids.

    I have pronounced brow ridges, something like this guy, but I dont know how it relates to ethnicity as it is rare among Poles and even in my family. Maybe I am a few % Australoid
    (it may be also related to too high presence of hormones of growth, however I dont think its not my case, as I dont have other symptoms).
    Maybe its neandarthal trait?

    Am I right or am I wrong?

    Australians have more pronounced brow ridges, but other groups like Europeans have them as well.
    Curious rule here: There is an exception to every rule.

    The above rule, if true, would mean it was true for each rule (as by it's own words it specifies "every rule"), thus becoming the exception to itself, thus further solidifying its own truth / validity / veracity.

    I like my pronounced brow ridges. I don't have a choice either. And anyway tough men have pronounced brow ridges.
