If Time since the end of the Pleistocene geologic epoch (11,700 y) was a standard unit ...

  • Time since the end of the Paleogene geologic period (23 million y)...more would be 2000 x Time since the end of the Pleistocene geologic epoch
  • Time since the earliest farming (11,500 y)...more would be about as big as Time since the end of the Pleistocene geologic epoch
  • Time since the birth of Euclid (2,382 y)...more would be 1/5 of Time since the end of the Pleistocene geologic epoch
  • Time since the birth of Alexander the Great (2,377 y)...more would be 1/5 of Time since the end of the Pleistocene geologic epoch
  • Time since the birth of Archimedes (2,300 y)...more would be 1/5 of Time since the end of the Pleistocene geologic epoch
  • Time since the birth of Eratosthenes (2,297 y)...more would be 1/5 of Time since the end of the Pleistocene geologic epoch
  • Time since invention of the printing press (582 y)...more would be 1/20 of Time since the end of the Pleistocene geologic epoch
  • Time since the publication of Einstein's theory of Special Relativity (117 y)...more would be 1/100 of Time since the end of the Pleistocene geologic epoch
  • Time since the birth of computer scientist Grace Hopper (116 y)...more would be 1/100 of Time since the end of the Pleistocene geologic epoch
  • Time since Concorde Supersonic Airliner entered service (46 y)...more would be 1/250 of Time since the end of the Pleistocene geologic epoch
  • Period of Saturn's orbit (29.5 y)...more would be 1/400 of Time since the end of the Pleistocene geologic epoch
  • Period of Jupiter's orbit (11.86 y)...more would be 1/1000 of Time since the end of the Pleistocene geologic epoch
  • Period of Ceres's orbit (4.6 y)...more would be 1/2500 of Time since the end of the Pleistocene geologic epoch
