This is by far one of the coolest things I have ever seen on the internet. I can't tell you how much I love it.

I stumbled across it here: http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/badastronomy/2010/01/29/the-interactive-scale-of-the-universe/

Here is the actual interactive scale: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/525347

C'mon - a 4% pop isn't a gigameter - or anything close. 

Hey, what if the value of the stock market were "pinned" to that scale?  If a $0 value would be Einstien's quantum foam while the largest value is 140 yottameters then where are we today?  I need a drink.

Binve,

I watched the May 10th episodes on the attached Discovery Channel TV guide last night.  I found them to be pretty fascinating.  If you have time tonight, you may want to check them out.
