    I require assistance (Taking Personal Measurements for Racial Classification)

    Taking personal measurements for racial classifications is a pain in the arse without the proper tools. I was wondering if various forum members could list some decent substitute methods for doing so; methods that will yield adequate results. I would greatly appreciate a reply as soon as possible. I humbly apologize ahead of time if I come off as belligerent and demanding in this post.

    I measured my head breadth in a slide door, and then subtracted 4mm for the hair

    For head breath put your head against the wall(the angle doesn't matter) and with two pencils in each side, draw two points in the wall

    the Two Bricker is the way to go. make sure the bricks are perpendicular to a surface which is straight, such as a table so that the measurments dont seem too far off.
    Bricks are ideal because not much can go wrong. they are so solid that your head wont move them much and you get a fairly acurate testing device.

    I would much rather you do this than other methods, which Ive tried with little sucess and widely divergent results. bricks will give you the same results within half milimeters everytime. thats precision.
    every year is getting shorter, never seen to find the time,
    plans that either come to nought, or half a page of scribble lines,
    hanging on in quiet desperation is the English way;
    the time has come, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say.

    Another method could be: two people, you and any other to make the measurements, with a ruler or vernier better, pencil, a level and maybe a compass.
    Or you can try something more sophisticated but quite accurate: take pictures of yourself (the head of course), front, latheral and if you want superior, inferior and back. Open them in an image editor software or better in AutoCAD or similar . Scale the picture until one centimeter (or inch if you like) in your picture equals one centimeter in your pc (that is 1:1 scale). I reccomend to do this high resolution pictures and when you take a picture hold a scaled ruler near your face, as a guide to scale then. All those softwares include the option of a virtual ruler (in AutoCAD just mark two points of the distance to measure and the number apears in the moment), drawing two points and looking at the ruler will gave you a result as accurate as your correct scaling. The advantages is the accuracy achieved (doing this I made in AutoCAD a 3d model of a plane just with photos from a scanned magazine ), but it may take its time.
