Size Comparison October 1, 2016

Posted by geoff in News.

Cool series of photoshops comparing sizes of things. Here’s the most fanciful:

The most unrealistic of all the images - for more than one reason - was one showing the Death Star from Star Wars hovering ominously above Florida

Death Star vs. Florida

The B2 bomber one stood out for me. I’ve only ever seen them parked in isolation on an airfield or in flight. Seeing it on a football field with dimensions well known to me is amazing.

I like the bit on Spaceballs where President Scroob has to sprint through the ship because it’s so big. “If I walk, the movie will be over.”

That’s what I thought when I saw that Death Star pic. If you take the I-4 from Daytona Beach to St. Petersburg, that’s a 2:45 drive (assuming light traffic). Not a very practical set-up.

I liked the cat picture, but mostly because I don’t like cats.

Driving into work a little while ago, I looked at the downtown skyline and wondered how it would look with ATAT walkers in the streets. So when I got into work I asked a couple of colleagues to do some research on that, and we figured they would be a bit more than half the height of the tallest buildings.

So now that’s what I think about when I drive around. ATAT walkers messing up downtown traffic.

Wait, I know where you live… What downtown traffic?
