    You cant really just measure from some point to another and then successfully establish what race you are. its combined with alot of other observations/factors and examinations.

    but certain measurements could help to confine the raw features of your race morphology.

    Personally I had to start with a fucking roller tape and measure and it was erroneous in many ways and pissed me off big time. Some months ago I bought another helping tool which I have no idea what is called in English* I lack a "large" calliper. I got one almost perfect when I glue straight sticks unto it. but I need a large calliper which is hard to find! not even the institute of social anthropology in Copenhagen could help me when I contacted them.

    Actually it would be interesting if Von Braun which work as lab assistant could elaborate on their "electronic" equipment (name of product and prize perhaps?) I know they have some sort of advanced tools there.

    Im thinking of buying one my self to get 99,9% correct measurements!

    I have nr 1 (left) instrument, but nr 2 (right) is what im looking for DESPERATELY.

    I've been looking for that stuff online and the #2 are called "Flat leg outside calipers".

    Here's a site that sells that stuff:

    Here are also some digital calipers, they are much easier to work with in my opinion.

    Here are some very large calipers:

    Cephalic index is the ratio of the length of the head to its breadth, sometimes multiplied by 100 for convenience. So you get a caliper and measure the length and the width the divide the width by the length. This will give you the percentage that your head is longer than it is wide

    A cephalic index of 80 or more is called brachycephalic or broad; a measurement between 75 and 80 is mesocephalic; below 75 is considered dolicocephalic or long. By using that you can sometimes get a better idea of what subrace you are, especially if it's an accurate measurement.

    Here you can figure out if you are tall or taller than average compared to other north Europeans, or compared to Japanese (haha)


    I'm taller than 75% of British females
    and 99% of Japanese females.......x_rofl

    But I get a feeling I'm not at full height yet because both my parents are still a lot taller than me x_p

    by a closer look. the flat leg caliper is out of stock. so typical. jews own amazon also. im not even sure the caliper is big enough to meassure C.I but I could be wrong it says meassuring faces. anywhere else this can be bought?. i think its true that digital calipers are better but be sure the stick extensions are long enough or its damn hard to use them.

    so im still looking for one flat legged caliper it seems.

    wow cool. http://www.houseoftools.com/product.htm?pid=14191

    this one is 12 inch. that should be enough? you think its to big lol.

    I wonder how you retrieve the actually measure data on this thing, I cant see it that clear on the picture. but one should think there is some sort of calculator in beginning of the instrument?
