21+ Things That Will Surprise You With Their Actual Size

Published 6 years ago

We often see things on the internet whose scale we never even think about. And it’s only when we see them compared to something common (like the old “banana for scale” method of measuring) that things really get put into perspective.

After all, you pass by traffic lights and traffic signs every day but have you ever seen one up close? How about a wombat (spoiler alert: if you thought they’re no bigger than a housecat, you are wrong)? Bored Panda has compiled a list of things that are bigger than you might have thought and we’re sure you’ll be surprised. Check them out in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured - "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
