It's about one-and-two-thirds times as heavy as a Human Brain
In other words, 79.40 ounces is 1.67 times the weight of a Human Brain, and the weight of a Human Brain is 0.599 times that amount.(adult)
The average weight of an adult human brain is between 47.60 ounces. In humans and primates, sight and vision utilize about 30 different parts of the brain which together account for about half of the brain's size.
It's about half as heavy as a Gallon of Paint
It's about half as heavy as a Cat
In other words, 79.40 ounces is 0.5 times the weight of a Cat, and the weight of a Cat is 2 times that amount.(Felis catus) (Domestic; healthy weight)
The average domestic cat should weigh about 200 ounces. Cats are known for their righting reflex, which allows them to land on their feet and survive falls from heights of 1 m up to about 21 m.
It's about two-and-a-half times as heavy as a liter of Water
In other words, 79.40 ounces is 2.250889 times the weight of a liter of Water, and the weight of a liter of Water is 0.4442689 times that amount.(fresh; 4° C / 39.2° F; maximum density)
Contrary to popular belief, 1 liter (0.0.264172052358148 gal) of water at 4° C / 39.2° F (its point of maximum density) weighs 35.274950 ounces rather than 1 kg exactly. The total volume of water on the planet Earth is about 13,590,000,000,000,000,000 (13.59 quntillion) L (3,590,000,000,000,000,000 gallons).
It's about one-third as heavy as a Bowling Ball
In other words, 79.40 ounces is 0.330833333 times the weight of a Bowling Ball, and the weight of a Bowling Ball is 3.0226700 times that amount.(most common selection among male bowlers)
With an allowable range of 176 ounces, the most-preferred bowling ball weight among adult, male bowlers is 240 ounces. Because regulation balls measure the same diameter irrespective of their weight, ball density varies by size and balls weighing less than about 176.369810 ounces will float in water.
