Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-fiftieth as tall as The Washington Monument
In other words, 3.50 meters is 0.020675 times the height of The Washington Monument, and the height of The Washington Monument is 48.3680 times that amount.
(Washington, D.C.)
The Washington Monument measures 169.29 m 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 one-fiftieth as tall as St. Paul's Cathedral
In other words, 3.50 meters is 0.0201 times the height of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the height of St. Paul's Cathedral is 49.80 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom)
St. Paul's Cathedral measures 174 m 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 one-fifty-fifth as tall as The Space Needle
In other words, the height of The Space Needle is 52.60 times 3.50 meters.
(Seattle, Washington) (to aircraft warning beacon at peak)
Built for a 1962 World's Fair, the Space Needle stands 184 m 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 one-sixty-fifth as tall as The Golden Gate Bridge
In other words, the height of The Golden Gate Bridge is 64.90 times 3.50 meters.
(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (height above water)
The height of each tower of Golden Gate Bridge is 227 m 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 65 times as tall as a Golf Tee
In other words, the height of a Golf Tee is 0.015 times 3.50 meters.
The most common golf tee size and the length preferred for iron and most wood clubs is 0.054 meters tall. The tee did not come into common use until it was promoted by professional golfers Walter Hagen and Joe Kirkwood, as part of a marketing effort by the patent-holder of the well-known, "Reddy Tee."
It's about one-eighty-fifth as long as The QE2
In other words, the length of The QE2 is 84 times 3.50 meters.
(a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2)
The QE2 has a total length of 294 m. During its voyaging lifetime from 1969 through 2008, it travelled more than 9,600,000,000 meters, the furthest cumulative distance by any ship in modern history.
It's about one-ninety-fifth as tall as The Eiffel Tower
In other words, the height of The Eiffel Tower is 92.60 times 3.50 meters.
(a.k.a. La Tour Eiffel) (Paris, France) (to flagpole peak)
The Eiffel Tower stands 324 m tall, including its flagpole. The Tower is the largest structure in Paris as most other buildings are governed by a zoning restriction limiting them to a height of 37 m or less.
