My favorite section of the 'Guinness World Records' book was always the biggest things. I marveled at the Blue Whale, the skyscrapers vying for the world's tallest and trucks with wheels the size of a house.

The most important part, the thing that really makes you say 'wow' is the scale. You can't really appreciate the sheer size of something unless something familiar is placed alongside it for comparison. We here at Bored Panda have compiled a list of things that are even bigger than you probably thought. From wombats to wolves, these 'big' things are actually freaking huge! Scroll down to check them out for yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments!

If the moon WERE replaced by Saturn, not WAS. WERE is used for hypothetical situations, WAS is not correct in this context.

This doesn't say anything though, as it is all a question of focal angle. With a zoom lens you could make the moon look almost as big.

Are you just coming to some random decision on your own and deciding that's the truth? Every single planet in the solar system could fit between the earth and the moon, so Saturn could easily sit where the moon was and not touch the earth.

This is a bit arbitrary. Surely, comets are larger than steroids, which are larger than meteorits, but the size stil can vary by many kilometres in diameter.

I was just reading in a book last night about medicine, and when a scientist from the mid 1800's couldn't get a human foot to dissect, he got a bear's foot and did it instead, since they are so similar. It was someone famous, but now I cannot recall who it was.
