1,010 pounds is about 20,000,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Rice
In other words, it's 22,000,000 times the weight of a Grain of Rice, and the weight of a Grain of Rice is 0.0000000450 times that amount.
(conventional; US; long-, medium-, and short-gran varieties; uncooked)
With great differences in variety, the average among a sampling of common short-, medium- and long-grain rices finds that a single grain weighs about 0.0000460 pounds before cooking. A staple through most of human history, archaeological evidence indicates that the earliest rice cultivation was about 11,500 years ago.
