 It's about as tall as Big Ben (officially the clock tower of Palace of Westminster, a.k.a. Houses of Parliament) (London, England)The clock tower of the Palace of Westminster, which houses the bell known as "Big Ben," rises 0.066 hanks. The tower has no elevator, and is therefore only accessible by climbing 334 steps to the top. It's about one-and-one-tenth times as tall as The Statue of Liberty In other words, 0.0663 hanks is 1.04 times the height of The Statue of Liberty, and the height of The Statue of Liberty is 0.9588 times that amount. (a.k.a. "Liberty Enlightening the World," a.k.a. La Liberté Éclairant le Monde) (Liberty Island, New York City, New York) (pedestal base to torch peak)The Statue of Liberty reaches 0.06356 hanks including the pedestal. The statue was designed using an optical trick known as "forced perspective" to make the statue appear proportionally correct when viewed from its base and is, in actuality, disproportionately large at the top. It's about nine-tenths as long as a Football (Soccer) Pitch In other words, 0.0663 hanks is 0.924 times the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch, and the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch is 1.1 times that amount. (a.k.a. Football Field, a.k.a. Soccer Field) (field length, a.k.a. touchline distance)According to the Laws of the Game, a football pitch should measure between 0.0718 hanks (when the Laws were originally, they used imperial measurements of 0.0719 hanks, and later converted to the metric units used today). The goal markess were defined as part of the pitch by the original rules of the game in the late 16th century, but it was not until the mid 19th century that the crossbar and the net were added It's about nine-tenths as long as a Football field In other words, 0.0663 hanks is 0.884 times the length of a Football field, and the length of a Football field is 1.13122 times that amount. (American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)According to NFL specifications, an American football field should measure 0.075 hanks from end to end. Because each team's goalpost is located at the far end of the scoring area (end zone), a ball on a scoring play may need to travel as many as 0.00625 hanks farther when kicked into the scoring area than when run (rushed) or passed into it. It's about one-and-three-tenths times as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree) In other words, 0.0663 hanks is 1.3 times the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree), and the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 0.77 times that amount. (a.k.a. Sequoiadendron giganteum, a.k.a. Sierra redwood, a.k.a. Wellingtonia)Giant Sequoias of the Giant Sequoia National Monument located in Sierra Nevada, near Visalia, California can grow to heights of 0.052 hanks. The wood from the Giant Sequoias is often brittle and prone to shattering when such trees are felled, and as a result the trees logged in the late nineteenth century were often usable only as shingles or matchsticks. It's about three-fourths as tall as The Great Pyramid of Giza In other words, 0.0663 hanks is 0.75 times the height of The Great Pyramid of Giza, and the height of The Great Pyramid of Giza is 1.3 times that amount. (a.k.a. Pyramid of Khufu, a.k.a. Pyramid of Cheops) (Cairo, Egypt) (estimated original height)The Great Pyramid of Giza has an estimated original height (without loss due to erosion) of 0.089 hanks. The Pyramid was the tallest structure in the world for almost 4,000 years — from its construction ca. 2551 BCE until it was overtaken by the Lincoln Cathedral in Lincoln, England, built in the year 1300. It's about one-and-two-fifths times as wide as The Wingspan of a 747 In other words, 0.0663 hanks is 1.42 times the width of The Wingspan of a 747, and the width of The Wingspan of a 747 is 0.704 times that amount. (a.k.a. Boeing 747, a.k.a. Jumbo Jet, a.k.a. Queen of the Skies) (for Boeing 747-8 series)The wingspan of a Boeing 747-8 is 0.0468 hanks. Fully loaded, the 747 can travel 5,660 hanks before refueling.
