Do any pharmacies do it? Any place that has scales with height equipment too?

SS you are a very sad sad man and you make me feel depressed please add me to your blocked list.
the most accurate way to measure your height is to open your hand and spread your fingers,
measure the length between the tip of your thumb and the tip of your pinky finger, (A)
you then measure from the tip of your big toe to the ball of your heel (B)
you times A x B = C
the last measurement you need is from the floor to the top of you knee cap (D)
again times C x D = E
you then put E into a pan with roughly 350ml of water (id recommend bottled water not tap)
simmer on low heat for roughly 10-12 minutes, turning occasionally,
once cooked this will give you measurement F
F = your height, accurate to 1mm
i hope this helps
good luck :thumb:

a military hospital/recruiting office. Reason I say this is that once I needed black leather uniform shoes, the dressing kind of thing. Oh they had them in Phnom Penh, real ridiculus looking once all over the place. Marrocan style about a meter long of a pointed nose on them. Someone hinted that a guy right in front of a military base honked them off, brand new and exactly what I needed, for peanuts.
Then I needed a haircut in some deprived place, wound up at a base again. Only guy in town with a machine for the cut, and knew the style I was after. (No jarhead cut btw)

The proper way is to place a hard covered book , with the edge against the wall , then make the mark.

The idiot part of me wanted to ask if your height would be different in SHK (closer to the equator, or some-such) but I knew I should refrain.

I think Username Taken is right. I'm going to fuck up an ATM machine tonight.
