Ever wondered how many limp todgers to the mile?

16,896 according to miracle online wizard

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

We know our regular readers are keen on unorthodox units of measurement, so you're invited today to while away the time until pub o'clock with an entertaining online Weird Converter.

The website's creator explains that "while watching the Discovery Channel one day, listening to the narrators compare the size of a truck to blue whales, I thought that someone should make a converter to change other completely unrelated items".

No sooner said than done, and we can now learn that the average human stomach could, were it necessary, accommodate the mean ejaculate volume of 49.87531158947 white rhinoceroses.

Equally fascinating is the fact that the weight of Jennifer Aniston is the equivalent of 249.4896801996 average bowel movements, while the height of former basketball star Shaquille O'Neal can be measured in 22.66666666667 flaccid penises.

Of course, one of our own El Reg standards had to get a look in there somewhere, and we're delighted to note that an Olympic-sized swimming pool contains sufficient volume to fill 4.511731326783 space shuttle liquid oxygen tanks.

Splendid stuff. Our own online standards converter, featuring the linguine, the Jub and the nanoWales, is right here. ®
