Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-forty-five-thousandth as long as The Great Wall of China (wall only).
In other words, 962.8 shaftments is 0.00002344 times the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only), and the length of The Great Wall of China (wall only) is 42,660 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) (wall segments only)
The Great Wall of China has total wall segment length of 41,070 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-forty-five-thousandth as long as The Amazon River.
In other words, 962.8 shaftments is 0.00002279 times the length of The Amazon River, and the length of The Amazon River is 43,880 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-sixty-thousandth as long as The Great Wall of China (total).
In other words, 962.8 shaftments is 0.0000166 times the length of The Great Wall of China (total), and the length of The Great Wall of China (total) is 60,200 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 85,000 times as long as a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness).
In other words, the length of a Strand of Spaghetti (thickness) is 0.000012 times 962.8 shaftments.
(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 100,000 times as long as a Grain of Sand.
In other words, 962.8 shaftments is 117,000 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.00000855 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 99.1 shaftments in height.
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 0.000001 times 962.8 shaftments.
(for US Letter, a.k.a. ANSI A; 215.9mm by 279.4mm (8.5 in x 11 in); 20lb)
A single sheet of 20 lb, 8.5 inch x 11 inch paper is just 0.0007 shaftments thick. This style of paper weighs a mere 5 g per sheet.
It's about 1,500,000 times as long as a Strand of Hair.
In other words, the length of a Strand of Hair is 0.00000067 times 962.8 shaftments.
(average)
A strand of human hair averages 99 µm (micrometers), with blond hair being the finest and black hair the thickest. On a healthy scalp, each strand of hair will last up to 6 years.
