Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-tenth as tall as Mount Everest.
In other words, 592 fathoms is 0.1220 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 8.20 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 4,840 fathoms above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.00219 fathoms and shifting it to the northeast by 0.00246 fathoms each year.
It's about eight-and-a-half times as tall as The Great Pyramid of Giza.
In other words, the height of The Great Pyramid of Giza is 0.120 times 592 fathoms.
(a.k.a. Pyramid of Khufu, a.k.a. Pyramid of Cheops) (Cairo, Egypt) (estimated original height)
The Great Pyramid of Giza has an estimated original height (without loss due to erosion) of 71 fathoms. The Pyramid was the tallest structure in the world for almost 4,000 years — from its construction ca. 2551 BCE until it was overtaken by the Lincoln Cathedral in Lincoln, England, built in the year 1300.
It's about one-tenth as tall as a Mauna Loa.
In other words, 592 fathoms is 0.11810 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 8.4670 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 5,031 fathoms 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 ten times as long as a Football field.
In other words, 592 fathoms is 9.866670 times the length of a Football field, and the length of a Football field is 0.1013510 times that amount.
(American) (total distance; per NFL regulation)
According to NFL specifications, an American football field should measure 60 fathoms from end to end. Because each team's goalpost is located at the far end of the scoring area (end zone), a ball on a scoring play may need to travel as many as 5 fathoms farther when kicked into the scoring area than when run (rushed) or passed into it.
It's about one-tenth as tall as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench).
In other words, 592 fathoms is 0.099307 times the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the height of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 10.07 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 5,961.30 fathoms 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-tenth as tall as Maxwell Montes.
In other words, the height of Maxwell Montes is 10 times 592 fathoms.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 6,000 fathoms. 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 ten-and-a-half times as long as a Football (Soccer) Pitch.
In other words, the length of a Football (Soccer) Pitch is 0.0971 times 592 fathoms.
(a.k.a. Football Field, a.k.a. Soccer Field) (field length, a.k.a. touchline distance)
According to the Laws of the Game, a football pitch should measure between 57.40 fathoms (when the Laws were originally, they used imperial measurements of 57.50 fathoms, and later converted to the metric units used today). The goal markess were defined as part of the pitch by the original rules of the game in the late 16th century, but it was not until the mid 19th century that the crossbar and the net were added
