    Hydrostatic weighing






    How the hell do I find a place close to me that will do hydrostatic weighing LOL? I've googled it but I'm a retard when it comes to finding things on the web. I live in Arlington, VA. Anybody else have any better luck finding it for me?
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...

    Try body composition testing in your local phonebook or ask your primary care physician.
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    Echo that - universities are your best bet - not many places have the equipment and they may charge you up to $200 for a test. If you do it at a school they will usually do it for free to help train students.
    Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.

    The difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do.

    Its as accurate as you can get really. Other methods tend to be a bit flawed.
