    I'm not saying it's scientific down to the last 1/8 of an inch or whatever, but you can tell if the general specifications are roughly correct lol.
    I suppose it depends on how closely you inspect it. Do you grip it firmly with your hand and see how much is remaining that is not covered?

    Off-topic, but the music in your signature sounds very similar to some of the backing music in the Napoleon: Total War game.

    LOL well I don't spend a lot of time inspecting penises, so yeah

    Haha it does, doesn't it? The Total War games are pretty good, Rome is the best one though.

    West Asian?

    South Asia = India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan, Sikkim, Sri Lanka and the Maldives.
    didn't know that (well tbh never gave it much thought)

    In terms of filling in racial profiling forms. iranians and afghans would come under south asian... The two countries do share borders with pakistan... (and the fact that they may not be enough space for west asian on the form! )

    There is considerable ethnic diversity across India. People look a lot different there depending on where you are. I went travelling across India a couple of years ago and you really do notice it: lots of tall, fair-skinned, muscular people up north in Kashmir and Punjab; lots of fair-skinned but very short and slight people (more fat than muscle) in the central Indian state of Gujarat, lots of dark and obviously different-race people in Rajasthan, lots of very dark small people down south in Kerala and Tamil Nadu. India isn't a racial group but a new state established from the ashes of the Raj in 1947. Before the Raj it was a lot of different nation-states. So it's probably just sensationalist journalism to say 'oh look - in that country their dicks are smaller!'. I wonder if they'd say anything like that about the Chinese or whether the BBC as a propaganda wing of HMG would refrain from daring to do anything like that.
    Not entirely sure what you're getting at, the study was carried was carried out by the indian council for medical research.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but aren't Afghans also South Asians on the whole (as 75%+ are Pashtuns?). They may not be geographically completely South Asia, but they are most similar to Pakistanis, no?

    Iraqis on the other hand are Arabs? Middle-Eastern?
    Not sure about the 'similarity' argument - are we discussing this in ethnolinguistic terms or using markers of genetic similarity (haploptypes etc.).

    There are some Pashtuns in western border/autonomous regions of Pakistan (Waziristan, NWFP, Balochistan) but equally you could say that there are many groups with Tibetan ancestry in a few north-eastern Indian states (e.g. Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim).

    South Asia as a geographical entity tends to exclude Afghanistan and Myanmar.

    Iraq is a multiethnic country too. Obviously there have been substantial Arab migrations since the 6th century and the same applies (to a smaller extent) to Arab invasions of Iran, however Iran is considered very much 'Persian' even though many people may have Arab ancestry if they trace their family histories/genealogies back to the 7th century.

    What do you think Steph?

    Maybe you missed the bit where I said that India has a large number of different ethnicities within it. Does a Tamil have a dong as long as a Kashmiri? Have you ever seen a Kashmiri or a Tamil in real life?

    And that's just 2 regional ethnic groups out of literally hundreds.

    The whole Iranian identity is built on the 'Aryan-Persian' narrative but in reality most of the people in modern Iran are more Turkish than Persian - Turkish is spoken very widely and a lot of people do look Turkish. There has been Greek, Arab and Turkish rulership of Iran and all of these overlords whether benign (Turk-Azeri) or hostile (Greek/Arab) took full advantage of the prime natural resource of Iran - beautiful women.

    I think they come under "Middle Eastern". Not quite sure whether 'Afghan' would fall under "Central Asian". Iranian may fall under "Persian", but I'm not sure that "Persian" would be a label since Iran is the only Persian-majority nation in the world.

    Of course, if "Arab" was used instead of "Middle Eastern" then most Iranians would be excluded so may just select "Other".

    I'm pretty sure Iranians and Afghans do not come under South Asian. 'South Asia' specifically refers to the Indian subcontinent.

    Maybe you could consider spending more time inspecting penii (as opposed to penises) in the interests of science. You could also make estimations on penile girth by encapsulating it with your hands and seeing where the position of your finger tips were relative to your palm. Another idea would be to gently cup their balls to make estimates of size, droopiness and the frequency with which the right scrotal sac is more/less pendulous than the left scrotal sac.

    Off-topic again, but do you have the All-Factions Mod for Napoleon? And the Peninsula Campaign?

    Here's a simple and factual model that may make things a little easier:

    Iranians and Afghans - belong to the same racial subgroup of the wider Aryan racial group. The core Aryan groups that settled Iran and Afghanistan did so 10000 years ago, and came from the south and the west.

    Northern India - predominantly Aryan ancestry (successive waves of migrations of different groups from Vedic to Scythian), Indo-European language and religion. The waves of Aryan migration were not from Iran but from southern Russia.

    Southern India - predominantly Dravidian people, with dark skin, straight hair and of small stature. They belong to a completely different racial family from northern Indians and Afghans/Persians. Their language isn't from the Indo-European root.

    Hope this makes things a bit clearer.

    A penii inspector :rofl: I wonder which scientists actually do that, to find the averages and stuff...

    No I don't, is it any good? I have all the Total Wars though (I think).

    Hmmm.. regarding northern India - wouldn't most people be of mixed 'Aryan' and 'Dravidian' ancestry in the most populous parts - i.e. the Gangetic plain.

    Also, when people refer to 'racial families - do they not simply include 'Australoids, Capoids, Caucasoids, Mongoloids and Negroids'?
