An Amazing Array Of Sizes And Figures At Your Fingertips

Sizes (www.sizes.com) is an amazing free fact-packed website.  Think of it as Wikipedia for everything related to figures and sizes.  

Want to know the size of a Queen-size bed as opposed to a King size?  Or how many volts they use in the electricity supply in Kenya?  Or the markings that indicate the ratings of an electronic resistor?  Or maybe the dimensions of a screw thread?  The answers to these, and millions of other questions, are here to be discovered.

A hugely useful resource that's definitely worth bookmarking.  

Head to www.sizes.com for the search page, or http://www.sizes.com/indexes.htm for the tabbed indexes as shown below.

Wow. An amazing find, Rob: thanks for turning us on to it ...

In addition to the wealth of info they provide, I also appreciate their inclusion of a "How to Cite" Page (http://www.sizes.com/cite.htm).

Thanks again -

To be fair, I didn't find it. It was recommended to me by reader "imvm". Thanks to him/her, and everyone else who continues to send in suggestions. They're much appreciated, and all of them get read.
