That thread is a gem.  Joe redefines size to include weight and teaches us how science must be conducted:

 Quote Joe: So how the fuck can a piece of granite be baseball-sized?Thorton: It can be a sphere with a circumference between 9 and 9 1/4 inches, same as an actual baseball.Joe: Then it would weigh more than a baseball which means it is not "baseball-size".blipey: If a shoe box is 5" X 8" X 14" and I have a loaf of bread that is 5" X 8" X 14", it is perfectly acceptable to say that the loaf of bread is the size of a shoebox.Joe: I disagree. Well perhaps it is OK to say that in an informal gathering of imbeciles- perhaps even a formal gathering.  But never in a scientific setting- never when discussing science.  It is OK to say y=the shoe box and loaf of bread have the same dimensions.  But if they do not weigh the same then they are not the same size.

I've been wondering about the reciprocal.

Do one kilogram of cake and one kilogram of aardvark weigh the same? I say they can't, because they aren't the same size.

Cake, boy.
