Stuff that Weighs More than Me: King Kong


Just last week I got a chance to see the King Kong 360 3-D ride at Universal Studios in Hollywood.  I got the special VIP tour with the Producers Guild of America (the PGA that isn't about golf).  It was so fun!  And as I was sitting there in the dark, and as our tram was pounded by a huge silverback gorilla, it occurred to me--this bad boy totally qualifies for this site!


According to the fact sheet provided by the helpful folks at Universal, King Kong is:
30 ft. high,
20 ft. wide,
And if realized in flesh and bone, would weigh over 6000 pounds.
Any way you shape it, this hairy dude definitely weighs more than me!
