-->In other words, using Toms as a scale, the comic is currently a [[Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000 Tom Servo]]... though tomorrow it'll be a TomCruise. By Wednesday it'll be nearing a Creator/TomHanks, and by this time next week it'll be a TomSelleck. Thank you for your tom.

'''[[CelestialBureaucracy Bureaucratic]] Deva''': A hypothetical offspring of [[Film/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians Cruella de Ville]] and [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Sauron]]. It's useful to have a baseline comparison for these things.

\n* In ''Webcomic/{{Spinnerette}}'', Heather tells a reporter covering a protest about an antimatter experiment that if all the antimatter in the lab goes up in one big explosion, the result would be somewhere between "a firecracker and a mouse fart" (the amount of antimatter present was measurable in nanograms).

* Technology discussion boards have used "Libraries of Congress," in reference to the physical U.S. legislative library of the same name, as a measure of storage capacity. Various actual figures are occasionally tossed around as a baseline (often hovering in the tens of terabytes), but they vary widely, and now that people with a cursory knowledge of computers are familiar with kilo, mega, giga and terabytes, the term is now used as a joke more often than not. An [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O818btW2PYY IBM commercial]] even had Creator/AveryBrooks pose the question, "How many Libraries of Congress per second can your software handle?"
