33,000 furlongs per fortnight is about 80 times as fast as a Sloth
In other words, it's 82 times the speed of a Sloth, and the speed of a Sloth is 0.012 times that amount.
(for Brown-throated three-toed sloth, Bradypus variegatus)
The three-toed sloth moves along the ground at an average speed of 400 furlongs per fortnight. Long thought to be lengthy sleepers, a 2008 study concluded that sloths sleep an average of only 9.6 hours per day.
