# Yays

A new unit of measurement, the average height of a hand raised horizontally.
 (+4, -1) [vote for, against]

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.
