It's about 0.00000000002 times as long as The Football game (American).
In other words, 54.660 nanoseconds is 0.0000000000150 times the length of The Football game (American), and the length of The Football game (American) is 67,000,000,000 times that amount.
(a.k.a. American football) (per NFL rules; playing time only)
Per National Football League Rules, an American football game consists of four periods of 900,000,000,000 nanoseconds each for a total of 3,600,000,000,000 nanoseconds. The total duration of a football game can often be more than three hours, including stoppages of play, the intermission at halftime, team timeouts, and, in televised games, commercial timeouts. The Super Bowl — the highest-profile game of the sport — aired 2,700,000,000,000 nanoseconds of commercials in 2009.
It's about 0.000000000010 times as long as a Football game (Association) (Soccer).
In other words, 54.660 nanoseconds is 0.00000000001000 times the length of a Football game (Association) (Soccer), and the length of a Football game (Association) (Soccer) is 100,000,000,000 times that amount.
(a.k.a. association football, a.k.a. soccer) (per FIFA rules; playing time only)
Per Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) Laws of the Game, an association football game consists of two periods of 2,700,000,000,000 nanoseconds each, for a total of 5,400,000,000,000 nanoseconds of playing time (except in games played by women, or by players under 16 or over 35 years of age). The longest recorded amateur football game was a 2009 match in the Filipino town of Barotac Nuevo that lasted for 130,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000 nanoseconds.
It's about 0.000000000004 times as long as Gone with the Wind (film).
In other words, 54.660 nanoseconds is 0.000000000004020 times the length of Gone with the Wind (film), and the length of Gone with the Wind (film) is 249,000,000,000 times that amount.
(1939)
Gone with the Wind, the multiple Academy Award-winning film, had a running time of 13,600,000,000,000 nanoseconds for its 1939 copyright release. The scene depicting the burning of the Atlanta Depot cost $25,000 (unadjusted) and was filmed on a 0.16 sq. km (40-acre) set using all seven Technicolor cameras in existence at the time.
It's about 0.000000000003 times as long as The First Indianapolis 500.
In other words, 54.660 nanoseconds is 0.00000000000226540 times the length of The First Indianapolis 500, and the length of The First Indianapolis 500 is 441,420,000,000 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Indy 500, a.k.a. International 500-Mile Sweepstakes Race) (1911) (Indianapolis, Indiana)
The first recorded automobile race of its distance, the inaugural Indianapolis 500 was won by Ray Harroun in 24,128,000,000,000 nanoseconds. Haroun's average speed through the race was 120 kph (74.59 mph).
It's about 0.000000000002 times as long as The Longest Pro Baseball Game.
In other words, 54.660 nanoseconds is 0.00000000000180 times the length of The Longest Pro Baseball Game, and the length of The Longest Pro Baseball Game is 556,000,000,000 times that amount.
(1981) (McCoy Stadium, Pawtucket, Rhode Island)
The longest professional baseball game in history — a triple-A game between the Pawtucket Red Sox and the Rochester Red Wings — took place between April 18th and 19th, 1981 lasting a total of 30,200,000,000,000 nanoseconds (and 33 innings). The Red Sox ultimately won the game 3-2, but not before the game set twelve records, including the most plate appearances by a single player - a three-way tie between Tom Eaton, Dallas Williams, and future Hall-of-Famer Cal Ripken Jr., all of Rochester.
It's about 0.000000000001 times as long as The First light bulb test (Edison, 1879).
In other words, 54.660 nanoseconds is 0.000000000001050 times the length of The First light bulb test (Edison, 1879), and the length of The First light bulb test (Edison, 1879) is 952,000,000,000 times that amount.
(Thomas Edison's filament Thread No. 9) (1879) (total time)
Lit at 1:30am on October 22nd, 1879, the first Edison completed his first majorly successful test of his light bulb, which continued to burn for 52,200,000,000,000 nanoseconds until the bulb glass succumbed to the heat and cracked, extinguishing the filament. Within 94,700,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 nanoseconds of his success, Edison was selling 45,000 light bulbs per day to large companies across the country.
It's about 0.0000000000010 times as long as The First Transatlantic Flight (Alcock and Brown, 1919).
In other words, 54.660 nanoseconds is 0.0000000000009380 times the length of The First Transatlantic Flight (Alcock and Brown, 1919), and the length of The First Transatlantic Flight (Alcock and Brown, 1919) is 1,070,000,000,000 times that amount.
(John Alcock and Arthur Whitten Brown) (1919) (first non-stop flight)
In an effort to win a £10,000 prize from London's The Daily Mail, John Alcock and Arthur Brown completed a flight from St. John's, Newfoundland to Connemara, Ireland in 58,300,000,000,000 nanoseconds in June, 1919. In spite of their fame as aviators, Brown would never fly again after this trip and Alcock would lose his life during a flight to France less than 15,800,000,000,000,000.00000000000000000000 nanoseconds later.
