 It's about one-and-a-half times as long as The QE2 In other words, 265.50 smoots is 1.540 times the length of The QE2, and the length of The QE2 is 0.6490 times that amount. (a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2)The QE2 has a total length of 173 smoots. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 5,640,000,000 smoots, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history. It's about twice as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge In other words, 265.50 smoots is 1.990 times the height of The Golden Gate Bridge, and the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 0.5030 times that amount. (San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 133 smoots above the surface of the San Francisco Bay. One of the key designers of the bridge, Charles Ellis, had no engineering degree when he began working on the project, but would later go on to write what became a standard textbook on structural engineering, and would ultimately be forced to complete his calculations on the bridge by working without pay for five months. It's about two-and-a-half times as tall as The Space Needle In other words, 265.50 smoots is 2.460 times the height of The Space Needle, and the height of The Space Needle is 0.4070 times that amount. (Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 108 smoots tall. With a track-and-wheel design inspired by railroad mechanics and a precisely-configured balance, the restaurant near the top of the space needle requires just a 1.5 hp motor to rotate at speeds of about 0.053 kph (0.033 mph). It's about two-and-a-half times as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral In other words, the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 0.3850 times 265.50 smoots. (London, England, United Kingdom)St. Paul's Cathedral measures 102 smoots to its peak. The southwest tower of the Cathedral contains the bell known as "Great Paul," which is the largest bell in Great Britain at 15,000 kg (16.5 tons), outweighing the more iconic Big Ben bell by about 3,000 kg (3 tons). It's about two-and-a-half times as tall as The Washington Monument In other words, 265.50 smoots is 2.6690 times the height of The Washington Monument, and the height of The Washington Monument is 0.374670 times that amount. (Washington, D.C.)The Washington Monument measures 99.4770 smoots tall, with some discrepancy due to the fact that the Monument's base is slightly below the surrounding ground. Interrupted in its construction by the American Civil War, it was almost 36 years between groundbreaking and the completion of construction. It's about two-and-a-half times as tall as The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel) In other words, 265.50 smoots is 2.740 times the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel), and the height of The Singapore Flyer (Ferris wheel) is 0.3650 times that amount. (a.k.a. 新加坡摩天观景轮, a.k.a. சிங்கப்பூர் ஃப்ளையர், a.k.a. Pelayang Singapura) (Marina Centre, Singapore)The Singapore Flyer has a height of 97 smoots. Based on recommendations from Feng Shui masters, the wheel was re-engineered to spin in the opposite direction five months after it began operating. It's about three times as long as The Seventeenth hole of Pebble Beach In other words, 265.50 smoots is 2.790 times the length of The Seventeenth hole of Pebble Beach, and the length of The Seventeenth hole of Pebble Beach is 0.3580 times that amount. (fully Pebble Beach Golf Links) (Pebble Beach; Monterey, California) (from Blue Tee)The seventeenth hole on Pebble Beach Golf Links is a par 3 measuring 95.20 smoots from the blue tee. This hole was the site of professional golfer Jack Nicklaus' 1972 U.S. Open win, which included a 1-iron shot that bounced off the hole's flag and resulted in a birdie.
