It's about 70,000 times as long as a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness)
In other words, 121.60 meters is 72,000 times the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness), and the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness) is 0.0000140 times that amount.
(average; restaurant and supermarket applications) (based on FMA Omcan Italian Made TR50 Counter Top Pasta Machine Extruder 13317)
An average strand of restaurant-grade spaghetti measures 0.0017 meters in thickness. In 2010, a California Buca di Beppo set a world record by preparing a 13,780-lb bowl of spaghetti, served in a swimming pool.
It's about one-seventy-five-thousandth as long as The Great Wall of China (total)

Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.00125 meters. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 15.10 m (49.55 ft) in height.
It's about one-one-hundred-thousandth as long as The Diameter of Earth
In other words, 121.60 meters is 0.00000953256470 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 104,903.560 times that amount.

The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 40,075,014 m. The first airplane trip around the circumference of the Earth (with a few stops along the way), was completed in 1924 by the United States Army Air Service, and took 175 days.
It's about 1,000,000 times as tall as a sheet of Paper
In other words, the height of a sheet of Paper is 0.000001000 times 121.60 meters.
