In other words, 0.680 pounds is 0.00011 times the weight of The Tongue of a Blue Whale, and the weight of The Tongue of a Blue Whale is 9,100 times that amount.
(Balaenoptera musculus) (adult)
The tongue of a Blue Whale can weigh up to 6,000 pounds. Despite their tremendous size, blue whales feed almost exclusively on tiny crustaceans called krill and cannot swallow anything much larger than a beach ball.

It's about 15,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Rice
In other words, the weight of a Grain of Rice is 0.0000670 times 0.680 pounds.
(conventional; US; long-, medium-, and short-gran varieties; uncooked)
With great differences in variety, the average among a sampling of common short-, medium- and long-grain rices finds that a single grain weighs about 0.0000460 pounds before cooking.

It's about 70,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Sand
In other words, the weight of a Grain of Sand is 0.0000140 times 0.680 pounds.
(medium grain)
With tremendous variety in the size of grain and the component material, grains of sand weigh an average of 0.00000970 pounds. 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.
