Scales and comparisons

How big is 30?
  • To count from 1 to 30 would take you about fifteen seconds.

    This is a very rough estimate, based on a speaking rate of half a second every third order of magnitude. If you speak quickly, you could probably say any randomly-chosen number between one and a thousand in around half a second. Very big numbers obviously take longer to say, so we add half a second for every extra x1000.

    Note: we do not count involuntary pauses, bathroom breaks or the necessity of sleep in our calculation!

  • A cube with a volume of 30 cubic inches would be around 0.3 feet tall.
