Only in a vacuum.
It’s resolved, given that yer average space rock is an ellipsoid (prolate or oblate, doesn’t matter) (“Hey what about Oumuamua!?” yeah, yeah, well that was space aliens, weren’t it? doesn’t count) It should be hippos for comparison, not giraffes; possibly elephants (“African or Indian?”) OK, maybe go with: “It’s about the size of a banana, if that banana was five meters long.”
Iceland would measure in amounts of sheep (4 cubic sheepshapes).
Is that 0.004 kilosheepshapes or 0.004 kibisheepshapes?
That’s the one! Not the site where I read it, but definitely the same article.
Who said it was split laterally?
Put me down for using ruminants and celestial remnants as units of measurement! Go, ruminants and remnants!
Hold on - you can’t go directly from a double-decker bus straight to using Wales - you have to go through the intermediate units of brontosauruses and Nelson Columns.
The Register can help here:
It’s about 20 Björks.
(Assume your Björk is spherical, of uniform density and travelling at a constant velocity in a vacuum).
No, it was splat, literally!
20 Björks to a giraffe? Good to know.
My point exactly! Because who said it wasn’t?
is that with or without attached swan? makes a difference at x20, you know.
And people say there is no good news in the world today. Thank you, contribs in this thread.
