Now when you say something is "yay high" , it's absolute.

"The pony's about 1.4 yays high."

       I thought that the arm raised would be related to a vote of 'yes' - perhaps expressed as a percentage or proportionality.   

       Let's be a bit more specific. Is the Yay to be average total height of a person with their arm outstretched vertically? Or just the outstretched arm or outstretched hand?

       The version of the Bible which is in the metric system seems to define a cubit as half a metre.
