It's about one-one-hundredth as long as The Las Vegas Strip
In other words, 665 hands is 0.010 times the length of The Las Vegas Strip, and the length of The Las Vegas Strip is 100 times that amount.
(Las Vegas Boulevard S and W from Russel Rd to Sahara Ave)(Paradise, Nevada through Winchester, Nevada).
Although technically located beyond the city limits of Las Vegas (along with the well-known "Welcome to Fabulous Las Vegas" sign), the stretch of road known as the "Las Vegas Strip" runs 67,000 hands along Las Vegas Boulevard South and West from Russel Road at the south end to Sahara Avenue at the north end. The casinos and hotels on the Strip display an estimated total of 240,000,000 hands of neon light tubing.
It's about one-one-hundredth as tall as Aconcagua
In other words, 665 hands is 0.009705 times the height of Aconcagua, and the height of Aconcagua is 103.0 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Cerro Aconcagua) (Mendoza, Argentina)
Aconcagua measures 68,523 hands height at its peak. Although there is no definitive evidence that members of the indigenous Inca civilization ever reached the peak the mountain, numerous archeological sites have been found on the slopes of the mountain, including a naturally-embalmed Incan mummy was discovered on a 51,181 hands high ridge.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as Mount Everest
In other words, 665 hands is 0.0076353 times the height of Mount Everest, and the height of Mount Everest is 130.97 times that amount.
(a.k.a. Mount Chomolungma, a.k.a. Sagarmatha, a.k.a. Mount Qomolangma, 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 rises 87,095.10 hands above sea level at its summit. The plate tectonics of the Indian subcontinent continuously alter the mountain's peak — raising it by 0.0393701 hands and shifting it to the northeast by 0.0442913 hands each year.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as a Mauna Loa
In other words, 665 hands is 0.0074 times the height of a Mauna Loa, and the height of a Mauna Loa is 135.7 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 90,550 hands 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 one-one-hundred-fiftieth as deep as The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench)
In other words, 665 hands is 0.006197 times the depth of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench), and the depth of The Challenger Deep (Marianas Trench) is 161.36 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 107,300 hands below sea level. The first manned expedition to the bottom of Challenger Deep took 4 hours and 48 minutes in 1960. This was the only manned descent to the floor of the Trench until 2012, when director James Cameron made the trip; several other descents have been made since then.
It's about one-one-hundred-fiftieth as tall as Maxwell Montes
In other words, 665 hands is 0.006 times the height of Maxwell Montes, and the height of Maxwell Montes is 160 times that amount.
(Ishtar Terra, Venus)
Maxwell Montes rises to a total height of 110,000 hands. 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 200 times as tall as a Bowling Pin
In other words, 665 hands is 177 times the height of a Bowling Pin, and the height of a Bowling Pin is 0.0057 times that amount.
(USBC specifications; tenpin)
According to the United States Bowling Congress specifications, a tenpin bowling pin should be within 0.00781 hands of 3.750 hands in height. The USBC further mandates that certified pins be made of sugar maple wood, unless otherwise approved by the organization.
