It's about 100,000,000,000 times as heavy as a Poppy Seed.
In other words, 895 firkins is 120,000,000,000 times the weight of a Poppy Seed, and the weight of a Poppy Seed is 0.0000000000083 times that amount.
(Papaver somniferum)
Fifty percent oil by weight, a poppy seed weighs approximately 0.0000000073 firkins. The true pigment of a poppy seed is brown in color, while the characteristic bluish color is an optical illusion caused by a layer of calcium oxalate crystals refracting light rays.
It's about 650,000,000,000 times as heavy as a Grain of Salt.
In other words, 895 firkins is 625,000,000,000 times the weight of a Grain of Salt, and the weight of a Grain of Salt is 0.0000000000016 times that amount.
The mass of a grain of salt is approximately 0.00000000143 firkins. Salt consumption varies widely by country; the people of the United States consume a combined total of about 66,800 firkins of salt each year.
