The "Daisycutter" is the size of a VW Beetle
In honor of the colossal mismanagement of our current Middle East deployment, I present you, dear reader, with:

Human Endeavors Through The Ages
Weighing 380 Tonnes.



Queen Hatshepsut’s Obelisk (Karnak, Egypt) - Technically, 380 tons is the high estimate of its weight, but at 95 feet tall and made of a single piece of pink granite, it’s an impressive structure.


L’Astrolabe, French Naval Corvette - Dispatched in 1837 on a mission to locate the southern magnetic pole. The ship had a displacement of 380 tons.


The estimated annual opium production of Laos in 1989.


The Boeing 747.
