It's about one-one-hundredth as tall as Mount Everest.
In other words, 156.740 cubits is 0.0081 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 123 times that amount.(a.k.a. Mount Chomolungma, a.k.a. सगरमाथा, a.k.a. Chajamlungma, a.k.a. ཇོ་མོ་གླང་མ, a.k.a. 珠穆朗玛峰, a.k.a. Zhūmùlǎngmǎ Fēng) (Sagarmatha Zone, Nepal and Tibet, China) (to summit, excluding snow depth)
Mount Everest is 19,400 cubits above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.00875 cubits and shifting it to the northeast by 0.00984 cubits each year.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as a Mauna Loa.
In other words, 156.740 cubits is 0.007816 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 127.90 times that amount.(Hawaii) (Hawaiian island volcano) (total height from seafloor)
Mauna Loa, one of the five volcanoes which forms the island of Hawaii and the tallest mountain in total height in the world, rises to 20,120 cubits above the seafloor. The peak of Loa is home to the approximately 6,000 sq. m (0.6 ha) Lake Waiau, one of the highest altitude lakes in the United States outside of Colorado.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench).
In other words, 156.740 cubits is 0.0065732 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 152.130 times that amount.(near Marianas Islands, a.k.a. Ladrones Islands, northwestern Pacific Ocean) (depth below sea level)
The Challenger Deep, at the southern end of the Marianas Trench, reaches a depth of 23,845 cubits below sea level. There has been only one manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep — a 1960 voyage that took 4 hours and 48 minutes to reach the bottom.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as Maxwell Montes.
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 150 times 156.740 cubits.(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 24,000 cubits. Since Venus does not seem to have the kind of tectonic activity which gives rise to mountains on Earth, the origin of the Venusian mountain remains the subject of some dispute.
It's about 200 times as tall as a Bowling Pin.
In other words, 156.740 cubits is 188 times the height of a Bowling Pin, and the height of a Bowling Pin is 0.00532 times that amount.(USBC specifications; tenpin)
According to the United States Bowling Congress specifications, a tenpin bowling pin should be within 0.00174 cubits of 0.8330 cubits in height. The USBC further mandates that certified pins be made of sugar maple wood, unless otherwise approved by the organization.
It's about one-three-hundred-fiftieth as tall as Olympus Mons.
In other words, the height of Olympus Mons is 370 times 156.740 cubits.(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 59,000 cubits. The mountain has been known to astronomers since the nineteenth century because it is tall enough to rise above Mars' frequent dust storms.
It's about one-one-thousandth as long as The Panama Canal.
In other words, 156.740 cubits is 0.00081 times the length of The Panama Canal, and the length of The Panama Canal is 1,200 times that amount.(Canal de Panamá) (Panama)
Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans across the Isthmus of Panama, the Canal measures 190,000 cubits in length. Ships passing through the Canal are raised (and then lowered) 57 cubits above sea level through the lock-and-dam system.
