Ever wondered how many of you it would take to make the heart of a whale? Or how many basket balls you would need to balance on your scale to reach your own weight? Now you can find that out, and more!

Weight And Things is a webapp we designed to let you make and share amusing and surprising comparisons with your weight. For instance, you can find out how long a movie we could make with a film reel that weighs as much as you or how much you weigh compared to a polar bear on the Moon, two examples among many others…

If kilograms and pounds can sometimes make you a bit anxious, forget it for a moment and have fun with them here.

Try out Weight And Things and let us know which comparison is your favorite!
