Size Does Matter

Re-unearthed via the good people of Metafilter: a website comparing the sizes of vessels from throughout science fiction.

When I saw this site a few years ago, I started picturing Imperial AT-ATs as if they were walking the tarmac of an airport, past 747s and terminal buildings. I've looked at airports often over the years, though not as much after 9/11 when lots of airport lookouts and observation decks closed, and that helped with the reality of those vehicles.

And hey, fellow Star Wars fans: am I the only one who ever imagined what would happen if the Imperials and the Rebels showed up in our world, so you might really see those AT-ATs marching towards our cities?
