Kilogams is so European...

I think that this article would be more accessible to all Reg readers if you converted kilograms to kilocats, or double decker buses.

Double decker buses is length not weight... so that's out.

Mega Kartrashian Butts? Hmm... that might be volume. Back to the drawing board.

Converting 2e+30 kg to other units is not so sensible -- even in kilojubs it is 4.761904761904762e+26. We need more units for very heavy/light stuff.

Must be at least a bit pseudoscientific, so YoMomma is out. Should we just use 476190 yottajubs?

New BBC measurements today

The Kent Lorry park will be the same as 1 Disneyland.

The amount of rock removed from the new Alps tunnel is the same as XEgyptian pyramids (70 I think it was quoted)

Is it safe to mention that weight is measured in Newtons and that you're all actually talking about mass?
