Memory Like An Elephant

Quirk it: 0

22 elephants in a hot air balloon

The average hot air balloon is 70 – 90,000 cubic feet in volume.
How big is that?
22 or more elephants would fit inside!

If more analogous teaching methods were used at my school, I would be a far more knowledgable person today. Especially if the analogies were quirky and animal related, I’d be known to have memory like an elephant.

  1. Or like 3 Brontosaurus… although no one would ever say “Memory like a Brontosaurus”, since they supposedly had a tiny brain. But still, 3 of those guys in 90,000 cubic feet… Wow!

  2. Just based on approximate size of brontosaurus – I have never met one, so I cannot confirm.
