I'd assume that they did the math on the squared measurement of the rice, and scaled it all off of that
>>
>>51547521
>1 cup of rice is 1024 grains
sounds fairly accurate
>8 bags of rice is 1024 cups
sure, that sounds right
>3 lorries of rice is 1024 bags
believable, i guess
>2 container ships of rice is 3072 lorries
that works
>2048 container ships covers Manhattan
no
>1024 manhattans is 3 UKs
i dont know geography but this doesnt seem right, who knows though
>3072 UKs fills the pacific ocean
Nope, doesnt work surface wise and it doesnt work volume wise

How big is a byte really?

>>51547761
depends how big you open your mouth

Long or short grain?

-_-
If you start from a comparison measurement of rice and use mass as the fa- hey wait a minute stop that!

A byte is a representation of a yes or a no

That's a bit you fuck.

Assuming container ships are 1000 (300m) ft x 100 ft (30m) (averaging), this would give us roughly 9000 m^2. Multiply that by 2048 and it gives us 18,432,000 m2 (or 18.2 km^2). Manhattan is roughly 90 km^2, so it would 20% of Manhattan.

1024 manhattan would be 92,160 km^2 roughly. UK's roughly 250,000 km^2, still only 1/3 of it.

Its not accurate but I think the point was to convey the relative size, which is close enough I'd say.
