Finally: Converting Units Sensibly
« on: June 19, 2008, 05:48:39 PM »


Have you ever wondered how many CDs it takes to backup you whole harddisk, or how long 90 AA batteries end to end are? Or maybe you just need a funny way to express a boring value.

In that case, head over to sensibleunits.com and start converting! You can also do the old style convert stuff, i.e. from inches to rods, but 100 inches equaling 1.3 Kobe Bryants is a lot funnier than 100 inches equaling 0.505 rods.  ;)

Impressive!!
Try typing '1', and then adding '1's to the end(or the beggining :P). This way, you'll see all the stuff they have, it's pretty cool to see all that variety :)
