Off Topic: Useful, Perhaps

Posted in Off Topic by DCroy on 21 December 2008

Working on projects here and in Japan, I’m always bouncing back and forth between imperial and metric (btw, metric is so much better – too bad we Americans don’t have much of an intuitive feel for it). Google converts the numbers for me, but I always have trouble visualizing the differences. So, here’s a chart showing relative sizes and a few actual differences, with some silhouettes of popular, large things for scale.

And scroll all the way down for a truly magnificent comparison of feet and inches.

Magnificent, I say!

    Nothing seems to be easier than seeing someone whom you can help but not helping.
    I suggest we start giving it a try. Give love to the ones that need it.
    God will appreciate it.
