It's about forty times as heavy as a House
In other words, 0.0059 megatonnes is 37.80 times the weight of a House, and the weight of a House is 0.0265 times that amount.
(149 sq. m, single-level, unfurnished)
A 149 sq. m (1,600 sq. ft), single-story, unfurnished house (without extensive masonry) of the type commonly found in America would weigh approximately 0.000156 megatonnes, based on the weight of the included materials. In contrast, a yurt — a type of dwelling structure popular among nomadic peoples of East Asia — typically weighs less than 0.000000460 megatonnes.
It's about one-fifty-fifth as heavy as The Empire State Building
In other words, the weight of The Empire State Building is 56.20 times 0.0059 megatonnes.
(New York City, New York)
The Empire State Building weighs approximately 0.3310 megatonnes. About 4% of the building's weight is its 6,000 cu. m (200,000 cu. ft) of limestone façade.
It's about 55 times as heavy as a Blue Whale
In other words, 0.0059 megatonnes is 56.50 times the weight of a Blue Whale, and the weight of a Blue Whale is 0.0177 times that amount.
(Balaenoptera musculus)
Blue whales weigh between 0.000105 megatonnes. The largest mammal to have ever lived, blue whales feed almost exclusively on krill — tiny invertebrates weighing about 0.000000000001000 megatonnes each.
It's about 85 times as heavy as The Space Shuttle

(for Endeavour, a.k.a. OV-105, a.k.a. Orbiter Vehicle-105) (empty weight, excluding main engines)
When empty, the space shuttle Endeavour weighs 0.0000710 megatonnes. The shuttle's spacious cargo bay carried the Chandra X-ray Observatory into orbit in 1999 — a payload that weighed 0.0000200 megatonnes.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as heavy as The Golden Gate Bridge

(San Francisco, California and Marin County, California) (Post 1986 weight reduction; total weight of bridge, anchorage, and approaches)
Following the completion of the 1986 project to eliminate excess material, the total weight of the Golden Gate Bridge — including its anchorages and approaches — is 0.8050 megatonnes. The two main cables in the spanning the bridge are spun out of a total of 129,000 km (80,200 mi) of wire.
It's about 500 times as heavy as an Anchor of a Cruise Ship
In other words, 0.0059 megatonnes is 522 times the weight of an Anchor of a Cruise Ship, and the weight of an Anchor of a Cruise Ship is 0.00192 times that amount.

Each of the forward anchors of the RMS Queen Elizabeth 2 weighs 0.00001130 megatonnes. The anchor of the QE2 now sits in front of the Holyrood Church in Southampton, England, United Kingdom, along a pedestrian tourist route known as "the QE2 mile."
It's about 900 times as heavy as a Tyrannosaurus rex
In other words, 0.0059 megatonnes is 920 times the weight of a Tyrannosaurus rex, and the weight of a Tyrannosaurus rex is 0.0011 times that amount.
(for FMNH PR2081, a.k.a. "Sue") (a.k.a. Tyrannosaurus, a.k.a. T-Rex) (estimated live weight)
The notable Tyrannosaurus specimen housed at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, Illinois, "Sue," is estimated to have weighed about 0.00000640 megatonnes while alive. A renowned predator in popular culture, the teeth of tyrannosaurus rex were up to 33.02 cm (13 in) long.
