You know, I was actually getting into this a little bit, finding the esoteric knowledge somewhat alluring. But five parts adding up to over two hours? I'm gonna call the total program a fit candidate for our "Boring Video" competition.
Don't you hate it when you can't remember how many Weinermobiles it would take to get to the top of the Empire State Building, or how many Shaquille O'Niels would line up along the Golden Gate Bridge? What about when you need to know how many cubic inches of air one million dollars weighs, or baby grand pianos to Airbus A380s? Or maybe you are planning a party and need to know how many human stomachs a keg of beer will fill, or you're just curious how many Space Shuttle liquid oxygen tanks it would take to fill the Grand Canyon?
Well, if you've ever had those problems, you are in luck. Go check out the Weird Converter and convert unusual units of height, weight, and volume to your heart's content.
