Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-two-thousand-five-hundredth as tall as Maxwell Montes.
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 2,600 times 190 fingers.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 490,000 fingers. 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 3,500 times as long as a Grain of Sand.
In other words, 190 fingers is 3,380 times the length of a Grain of Sand, and the length of a Grain of Sand is 0.000296 times that amount.
(medium grain)
Composed mainly of quartz, mica, feldspar, or magnetite, a grain of sand measures an average of 0.0562 fingers. In 2007, a team of seven in Myrtle Beach created the world's tallest sandcastle, which measured 679 fingers in height.
It's about one-six-thousandth as tall as Olympus Mons.
In other words, 190 fingers is 0.00016 times the height of Olympus Mons, and the height of Olympus Mons is 6,300 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mount Olympus) (Mars)
The tallest mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons rises to approximately 1,200,000 fingers. 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-twenty-thousandth as long as The Panama Canal.
In other words, the length of The Panama Canal is 21,000 times 190 fingers.
(Canal de Panamá) (Panama)
Connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans across the Isthmus of Panama, the Canal measures 4,000,000 fingers in length. Ships passing through the Canal are raised (and then lowered) 1,200 fingers above sea level through the lock-and-dam system.
It's about one-twenty-five-thousandth as long as The English Channel.
In other words, the length of The English Channel is 25,300 times 190 fingers.
(average width between Isle of Ushant and The Walde Lighthouse) (La Manche, Ärmelkanal, Mor Breizh, Mor Bretannek) (a.k.a. The Channel)
The English Channel measures between 4,810,000 fingers, narrowing as it flows northeast. The world speed record for a Channel crossing by swimmer was set by Australian Trent Grimsey in 2012, with a time of 6 hours, 55 minutes.
It's about one-thirty-thousandth as long as The 405.
In other words, 190 fingers is 0.0000362340 times the length of The 405, and the length of The 405 is 27,598 times that amount.
(a.k.a. I-405, Interstate 405, San DIego Freeway) (Southern California)
Running from Irvine to San Fernando, The 405 runs a total of 5,243,700 fingers. The 405 is the most heavily-trafficed freeway in the United States, with an average speed as low as 8 kph during rush hours.
It's about one-thirty-thousandth as long as Hadrian's Wall.
In other words, the length of Hadrian's Wall is 29,000 times 190 fingers.
(a.k.a. Roman Wall, a.k.a. The Wall, a.k.a. Vallo di Adriano, a.k.a. Vallum Aelium, a.k.a. Severus' Wall) (from North Tyneside, Tyne and Wear, England, United Kingdom to Cumbria, North West England, United Kingdom)
Hadrian's Wall, which crossed England form the North Sea to the Irish Sea during the time of Roman rule, measures 5,400,000 fingers (about 79 Roman miles). Roman soldiers — at one time up to 10,000 of them — only occupied Great Britain for about 246 years after the wall was built, after which time the local Brits began to take residence the wall's garrisons.
