It's about half as tall as Nelson's Column.
In other words, 0.360 leas is 0.510 times the height of Nelson's Column, and the height of Nelson's Column is 1.9610 times that amount.
(London, England, United Kingdom) (from pedestal first step to tip of statue's hat)
Nelson's Column measures 0.70590 leas from the first step of the pedestal's base to the top of the statue's hat. While the London tower is the tallest, there are at least eight other monuments to Admiral Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson, 1st Duke of Bronté throughout England, Scotland, Ireland, Canada, and Barbados.
It's about two times as tall as a Brachiosaurus.
In other words, the height of a Brachiosaurus is 0.50 times 0.360 leas.
(based on comparable bone measurements, height to head)
Dinosaurs in the genus Brachiosaurus had an estimated height (at the head with neck fully extended) of up to 0.180 leas. A resin cast of the first Brachiosaurus specimen, owned by the Field Museum in Chicago, is currently on display at the O'Hare International Airport.
It's about half as tall as The Leaning Tower of Pisa.
In other words, 0.360 leas is 0.4670 times the height of The Leaning Tower of Pisa, and the height of The Leaning Tower of Pisa is 2.140 times that amount.
(a.k.a. The Tower of Pisa, a.k.a. Torre pendente di Pisa) (Pisa, Italy) (height along center axis)
The Leaning Tower of Pisa stands 0.7710 leas tall along the angle of its lean. In May of 2008, in an successful effort to stabilize the tower, 70 tonnes of earth were removed from the tower's base on the side opposite the lean.
It's about half as tall as The Cinderella Castle.
In other words, 0.360 leas is 0.4570 times the height of The Cinderella Castle, and the height of The Cinderella Castle is 2.190 times that amount.
(Fantasyland, Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World, Lake Buena Vista and Bay Lake, Florida)
Walt Disney World's Cinderella Castle is 0.7870 leas tall. The castle's architecture uses the optical trick known as "forced perspective" — the castle gets smaller near the top — to appear larger than it truly is.
It's about two-and-a-half times as tall as a Telephone Pole.
In other words, the height of a Telephone Pole is 0.420 times 0.360 leas.
(a.k.a. Utility Pole, a.k.a Power Pole, a.k.a. Telegraph Pole, a.k.a. Telegraph Post, a.k.a. Hydro Pole) (exposed height; per Florida Public Service Commission average)
A standard telephone pole is 0.150 leas tall. Despite alternatives, most telephone poles in the US are made of wood — most commonly pine — and have a lifespan of 25 to 50 years, depending on climate and preservatives applied.
It's about two-fifths as long as The Wingspan of a 747.
In other words, 0.360 leas is 0.3840 times the length of The Wingspan of a 747, and the length of The Wingspan of a 747 is 2.60 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Boeing 747, a.k.a. Jumbo Jet, a.k.a. Queen of the Skies) (for Boeing 747-8 series)
The wingspan of a Boeing 747-8 is 0.9360 leas. Fully loaded, the 747 can travel 113,000 leas before refueling.
It's about one-third as tall as a Giant Sequoia (tree).
In other words, the height of a Giant Sequoia (tree) is 2.90 times 0.360 leas.
(a.k.a. Sequoiadendron giganteum, a.k.a. Sierra redwood, a.k.a. Wellingtonia)
Giant Sequoias of the Giant Sequoia National Monument located in Sierra Nevada, near Visalia, California can grow to heights of 1 leas. The wood from the Giant Sequoias is often brittle and prone to shattering when such trees are felled, and as a result the trees logged in the late nineteenth century were often usable only as shingles or matchsticks.
