REALLY wanted to rep you for this post! But the dang rep police say I need to spread it around first! AWESOME site! Great find! It's so incredible, the difference in sizes between the smallest known things, and the largest known things! Amazing! This is by far better than the youtube videos that start small and start zooming out. Thanks for sharing!

Wow!

That was one sweet ride when I started sliding that scale button left and right.

It sorta made me wish I still got high!

Thanks.

Glad you both enjoyed the interactive aspect of the "program".....I hope other posters find it....spread the word.....it's very educational and puts the idea of size into true perspective.
