Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-fifteen-thousandth as long as The Amazon River.
In other words, 3,230 shaftments is 0.000076470 times the length of The Amazon River, and the length of The Amazon River is 13,080 times that amount.
(from Nevado Mismi, Arequipa, Peru through near Marajó, Brazil) (approximate distance)
The Amazon River has an approximate distance of 42,240,000 shaftments. Although by most measures it is the largest and one of the most significant rivers in the world, the region surrounding the Amazon is mostly sparsely populated and the river itself has no bridges across it at any point.
It's about one-twenty-thousandth as long as The Great Wall of China (total).
In other words, 3,230 shaftments is 0.00005560 times the length of The Great Wall of China (total), and the length of The Great Wall of China (total) is 18,000 times that amount.
(长城, 長城, Chángchéng, a.k.a. 万里长城, 萬里長城, Wànlǐ Chángchéng) (a.k.a. "The long wall of 10,000 Li") (from Shanhaiguan through Lop Nur, China) (total length, all branches)
The Great Wall of China, including all branches and trenches, is 58,100,000 shaftments. Built and maintained in multiple sections over about eleven centuries, the Great Wall is currently suffering the effects of erosion, especially in the older sections made primarily out of mud.
It's about one-twenty-five-thousandth as long as The Diameter of Earth.
In other words, 3,230 shaftments is 0.0000385890140 times the length of The Diameter of Earth, and the length of The Diameter of Earth is 25,914.1110 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has a diameter of approximately 83,702,579 shaftments at the Equator. The first complete view of Earth's diameter was in a photograph taken from a V-2 rocket launched in 1946 by the United States Army, which reached an altitude of 686,400 shaftments.
It's about 35,000 times as long as an Aspirin.
In other words, the length of an Aspirin is 0.0000290 times 3,230 shaftments.
(for up & up aspirin, 325mg, regular strength tablets) (a.k.a. acetylsalicylic acid, a.k.a. ASA)
A single aspirin tablet measures 0.092 shaftments in diameter. One of the most common medicines in the world and a foundation of worldwide health systems, an estimated 40,000 metric tons of aspirin are consumed each year.
It's about one-eighty-thousandth as long as The Circumfrence of Earth.
In other words, 3,230 shaftments is 0.0000122832650 times the length of The Circumfrence of Earth, and the length of The Circumfrence of Earth is 81,411.5790 times that amount.
(Equatorial)
The Earth — not a perfect sphere, but rather an oblate spheroid with bulged middle — has an Equatorial circumference of approximately 262,959,410 shaftments. 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 300,000 times as long as a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness).
In other words, 3,230 shaftments is 290,000 times the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness), and the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness) is 0.00000340 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 0.011 shaftments 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 400,000 times as long as a Grain of Sand.
In other words, 3,230 shaftments is 394,000 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.000002540 times that amount.
(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.0082 shaftments. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 99.10 shaftments in height.
