It's about one-thirty-fifth as tall as a Mauna Loa.
In other words, 218.240 ells is 0.02721 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 36.750 times that amount.(Hawaii) (Hawaiian island volcano) (total height from seafloor)
Mauna Loa, one of the five volcanoes which forms the island of Hawaii and the tallest mountain in total height in the world, rises to 8,049 ells above the seafloor. The peak of Loa is home to the approximately 6,000 sq. m (0.6 ha) Lake Waiau, one of the highest altitude lakes in the United States outside of Colorado.
It's about 40 times as tall as a Giraffe.
It's about one-forty-fifth as tall as Maxwell Montes.
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 43 times 218.240 ells.(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 9,600 ells. Since Venus does not seem to have the kind of tectonic activity which gives rise to mountains on Earth, the origin of the Venusian mountain remains the subject of some dispute.
It's about one-forty-fifth as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench).
In other words, 218.240 ells is 0.022881 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 43.7040 times that amount.(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)
The Challenger Deep, at the southern end of the Marianas Trench, reaches a depth of 9,538.10 ells below sea level. There has been only one manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep — a 1960 voyage that took 4 hours and 48 minutes to reach the bottom.
It's about 60 times as long as a Beetle (Volkswagen).
In other words, 218.240 ells is 61.150 times the length of a Beetle (Volkswagen), and the length of a Beetle (Volkswagen) is 0.01635 times that amount.(1964 model) (a.k.a. Volkswagen 1200, a.k.a. Käfer)
A 1964 Volkswagen Beetle measures 3.5690 ells. As the longest continuously-produced automobile design — in production for 75 years between 1938 and 2003 — the Beetle was voted the most fourth-most influential car of the twentieth century by the Global Automotive Elections Foundation.
It's about one-one-hundredth as tall as Olympus Mons.
In other words, 218.240 ells is 0.0092 times the height of Olympus Mons, and the height of Olympus Mons is 110 times that amount.(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 24,000 ells. The mountain has been known to astronomers since the nineteenth century because it is tall enough to rise above Mars' frequent dust storms.
It's about 100 times as tall as a Christmas Tree (artificial).
In other words, 218.240 ells is 110 times the height of a Christmas Tree (artificial), and the height of a Christmas Tree (artificial) is 0.0091 times that amount.(artificial; average height)
The most common height of an artificial Christmas Tree is 2 ells. According to the most recent USDA Census of Agriculture, a total of 1,389.59 sq. km (343,374 acres) of Christmas Trees were farmed in the US in 2007.
To all those observing, Merry Christmas from The Measure of Things!
