    Take a tape measure and pull out the tape to 103 inches..... 03 stands for the year (2003), so if you where doing this in 2004 you would pull it out to 104 inches... (Like this, Tape folded over...)

    Now fold it over in half..... The tip of the tape should now be even with the 103 inch mark...

    Read the inch for the year you where born in.... IE 1984 Look at 84 inches....

    Now look at the measurement across from it...... IE across from 1984 is 19 That is my age. Tada


    Pretty cool :p

    Exactly, I know it is, I mean how else could it tell you your age..... :p

    Calm down people I know its simple subtraction but the point is that I wasent even thinking about using a tape measure to do something of this sort... untill I was shown this. Its just something to impress your friends with when they are drunk, LOL

    it's not always your height... but usually pretty darn close... on average less than 2 inches afaik.. however there are people who are like 12 inches difference... and we call them "short arms" or "ape man"

    :p

    You could also look at your birth certificate, or if all else fails, ask your mother. :p
