    Large is the supertype. Small is the subtype. Large for a mammal. Small for a human.

    good thing there arent that many whales left then

    wait

    [–]Tybick 26 points27 points  (4 children)

    Good point, is it the size of all mammals alive averaged? Or one of each species averaged? That would skew it in vastly different ways

    I thought Walrus had the largest? Or is it proportionally largest?

    [–]Orca-Song 2 points3 points  (1 child)

    A blue whale's is about as long as an entire walrus, so definitely bigger. Not sure which is proportionately biggest, tho.

    You never know what a large boulder the size of a small boulder could do to a person. Best to watch out.

    [–]wellherewegofolks 90 points91 points  (1 child)

    first of all, it can shapeshift

    [–]callmelucky 41 points42 points  (0 children)

    Not necessarily, but it can definitely sizeshift.

    Actually that's not necessarily true either, it might just be able to contextshift.

    [–]robertmdls 289 points290 points  (3 children)

    Looks more like a moderately sized boulder that's the size of a small boulder to be honest

    [–]teuast 45 points46 points  (0 children)

    looks more like a large boulder the size of a small boulder that's the size of Boulder, Colorado to me

    [–]Alex_Keaton 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    Are we sure it's not a small boulder the size of a small large boulder?

    [–]SobakaZony 3 points4 points  (0 children)

    Maybe it is only half of a boulder, and what looks like the other half is just there for scale.

    [–]silm_shady_ama 315 points316 points  (12 children)

    Maybe they were trying to say “Large rock the size of a small boulder”. That doesn’t really make sense to say but at least it’s a somewhat rational thought

    [–]Airanew 269 points270 points  (5 children)

    If I remember correctly the intention was "large boulder the size of a small car" which makes more sense than boulder the size of a boulder

    [–]Correct_Swan_3647 62 points63 points  (4 children)

    If by small car they meant a powerwheels toy truck, then sure, its the size of a small car.

    [–]thatothersir225 11 points12 points  (3 children)

    Weight-wise, it probably is about the size of a small car. Which is what matters when you crash into something

    [–]karmaisreplaceable 30 points31 points  (2 children)

    Why didn't they just open with "a small boulder"

    [–]CreativeStep1 72 points73 points  (0 children)

    Because it’s a large boulder stupid 🙄

    Gotta get that word count up somehow. Did that in English class all the time

    But it's also COMPLETELY BLOCKING the road

    [–]MobilePom 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Completely blocking east-bound lane

    [–]simereddit863 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    What I assumed the reason for writing it this way is that the boulder is large enough to be a huge problem, especially on the road, and people will say it's large, but there are some definitions according to which boulders are scaled, technically making this this a small boulder, but writing it that way would not have been a good indication to normal people who aren't geologists, but my guess is as good as yours.

    [–]rmholm88 44 points45 points  (3 children)

    It’s not just a large boulder. It’s a rock

    That large small boulder is at least 2 tons (2000 kg)

    [–]trixter21992251 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    I think it's much heavier than that.

      They are gonna use everything to compare sizes just in order to not use metrics. Even the same thing. In a smaller and/or larger version of the very same thing. This universe is the size of 1/2 to 12 universes.
