 It's about 2,000 times as heavy as a Compact disc In other words, 60 pounds is 1,800 times the weight of a Compact disc, and the weight of a Compact disc is 0.0006 times that amount. (a.k.a. CD)A compact disc typically weighs 0.033 pounds. Data is stored on CDs by encoding into the track a series of tiny pits — each between 3.5 and 850 µm (0.00014 and 0.033 in) in length. It's about 2,500 times as heavy as a Battery (AAA) In other words, 60 pounds is 2,300 times the weight of a Battery (AAA), and the weight of a Battery (AAA) is 0.0004 times that amount. (Alkaline)An "AAA" size battery weighs 0.026 pounds. Batteries are named by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Committee C18 and AAA batteries were given their name because they were smaller than the "AA" and "A" size batteries which were invented first. It's about one-two-thousand-five-hundredth as heavy as The Space Shuttle In other words, 60 pounds is 0.0004 times the weight of The Space Shuttle, and the weight of The Space Shuttle is 2,600 times that amount. (for Endeavour, a.k.a. OV-105, a.k.a. Orbiter Vehicle-105) (empty weight, excluding main engines)When empty, the space shuttle Endeavour weighs 160,000 pounds. The shuttle's spacious cargo bay carried the Chandra X-ray Observatory into orbit in 1999 — a payload that weighed 44,000 pounds. It's about 4,000 times as heavy as an Eye (Human) In other words, 60 pounds is 3,800 times the weight of an Eye (Human), and the weight of an Eye (Human) is 0.0003 times that amount. (adult) A fully developed eye (in a person over the age of thirteen), weighs about 0.016 pounds. The pupil of the eye varies depending on the amount of light it is exposed to, but typically measures about 4 mm across. It's about one-four-thousandth as heavy as a Blue Whale In other words, 60 pounds is 0.0003 times the weight of a Blue Whale, and the weight of a Blue Whale is 3,850 times that amount. (Balaenoptera musculus)Blue whales weigh between 230,000 pounds. The largest mammal to have ever lived, blue whales feed almost exclusively on krill — tiny invertebrates weighing about 0.0022 pounds each. It's about 5,000 times as heavy as a Quarter In other words, 60 pounds is 4,800 times the weight of a Quarter, and the weight of a Quarter is 0.000208 times that amount. (United States quarter-dollar coin) (a.k.a. Quarter dollar, a.k.a. America the Beautiful quarter, a.k.a. two bits)The America the Beautiful series quarters, which began to enter circulation in 2017, weigh 0.0125 pounds each. In answer to the common riddle, there are 119 ridges around the edge of the coin in its current design. It's about one-five-thousand-five-hundredth as heavy as The Statue of Liberty (without base) In other words, 60 pounds is 0.0002 times the weight of The Statue of Liberty (without base), and the weight of The Statue of Liberty (without base) is 5,300 times that amount. (a.k.a. Liberty Enlightening the World, a.k.a. La Liberté éclairant le monde) (total weight, including foundation)The total weight of the Statue of Liberty — the Statue's copper and framework only, excluding the base — is roughly 310,000 pounds. 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.
