Sort Order:
Closest first | Highest first | Lowest first

It's about one-two-thousandth as heavy as a Tyrannosaurus rex
In other words, 742 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.0005 times the weight of a Tyrannosaurus rex, and the weight of a Tyrannosaurus rex is 2,200 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 1,600,000 fluid drams (ʒ) while alive. A renowned predator in popular culture, the teeth of tyrannosaurus rex were up to 33.02 cm (13 in) long.
It's about 2,500 times as heavy as a Jelly Bean
In other words, 742 fluid drams (ʒ) is 2,600 times the weight of a Jelly Bean, and the weight of a Jelly Bean is 0.0004 times that amount.
(for Jelly Belly beans; approximate)
Made of sugar, corn syrup, and pectin, a single jelly bean weighs about 0.290 fluid drams (ʒ). President Ronald Reagan cited jelly beans as his favorite candy and 820,000 fluid drams (ʒ) of the candies were served at his first inauguration in 1981.
It's about 3,500 times as heavy as a Nail
In other words, 742 fluid drams (ʒ) is 3,700 times the weight of a Nail, and the weight of a Nail is 0.0003 times that amount.
(for 15-gauge, 2-inch, finishing nails)
A two-inch finishing nail weighs 0.20 fluid drams (ʒ). Nails have been in use for more than 5,400 years and were ven used as a medium of exchange in ancient times.
It's about one-four-thousandth as heavy as an Anchor of a Cruise Ship
In other words, 742 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.00026 times the weight of an Anchor of a Cruise Ship, and the weight of an Anchor of a Cruise Ship is 3,920 times that amount.
(for QE2 forward anchor, a.k.a. RMS Queen Elizabeth 2)
Each of the forward anchors of the RMS Queen Elizabeth 2 weighs 2,910,000 fluid drams (ʒ). 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 10,000 times as heavy as a Raindrop
In other words, 742 fluid drams (ʒ) is 10,000 times the weight of a Raindrop, and the weight of a Raindrop is 0.000 times that amount.
(a.k.a. drop, a.k.a. droplet) (average)
The weight of a raindrop depends heavily on the type of weather, but averages about 0.05 fluid drams (ʒ). The familiar teardrop shape of a raindrop is actually an optical illusion, caused by the reflection of the light and the motion of the drop.
It's about one-twenty-five-thousandth as heavy as The Space Shuttle
In other words, 742 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.000041 times the weight of The Space Shuttle, and the weight of The Space Shuttle is 24,000 times that amount.
(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 18,000,000 fluid drams (ʒ). The shuttle's spacious cargo bay carried the Chandra X-ray Observatory into orbit in 1999 — a payload that weighed 5,100,000 fluid drams (ʒ).
It's about one-thirty-five-thousandth as heavy as a Blue Whale
In other words, 742 fluid drams (ʒ) is 0.0000276 times the weight of a Blue Whale, and the weight of a Blue Whale is 36,200 times that amount.
(Balaenoptera musculus)
Blue whales weigh between 26,900,000 fluid drams (ʒ). The largest mammal to have ever lived, blue whales feed almost exclusively on krill — tiny invertebrates weighing about 0.2570 fluid drams (ʒ) each.
