No, that would be an Elep :jester:

But then what are hippo's divided into?? And how would you weigh these things anyway? Hmmm, this calls for the BIG set of scales.

i walked into that one..... i dunno id have to guess a hippo is 2 or 3 gazelles.... or zebras if you follow the metric system

Yeah, me too. Weren't we talking about squid?

You want relevant? I got relevant. I got a whole herd of relevants with big ears and tusks, no wait a min... Doh!!

Ok how about this. How do you weigh a squid (thats not a cue for a lame tag line - cos if it is I've got dibs on it) but I mean does weight mean anything when you live in the sea??? Bulk I can immagine but does weight itself? ( :shock: Shock! Could this be a link back to the . ?!)

Geoff, I've I think you will find that's 'relephant', not 'relevant'.

As to your weight point, why not put a ceph on a pair of (Imperial) scales and note the result. Is this too simple?

(Does anyone have a clue what's going on on this thread?) :bugout:

Quite true about the standard texbook units...

Size/Volume - Double Decker Buses
Weight - Bull Elephants
Height - Storeys
Area - Football (soccer) Pitches
Speed - Express Trains

e.g. The Improbosaurus was the size of three double decker buses and weighed as much as 15 bull elephants. It stood as tall as a four storey building and its appetite was so prodigious that it consumed half a football pitch a day of tree-ferns. At full gallop it could outrun an express train.

JUDGE: President Firefly, have you any more questions for Mr. Chicolini?

CHICOLINI: Wait a minute, I got a question for-a him.

RUFUS T. FIREFLY: Yes?

CHICOLINI: What's-a got-a big ears, big tusks, and a trunk?

RUFUS T. FIREFLY: That's irrelevant!

CHICOLINI: That's-a right, that's-a r'elephant. 'Ats-a some-a joke, eh boss?
