Any of you smart people know just how deep 11,000 metres is without me having to go find a converter?

Nothing can make an american feel stupider than the damn metric system.

Good article jones.

lol youre an engineer, concrete?
I am SCARED of you and any buildings of yours i might have visited.

You're only off by say...3 or 4 miles..
lmao

1 meter = 100 cm - 1 yard = 91.44 cm. there are 1.093613298 yards in one meter.

That's 39.37 inches, while a yard is 36 inches, so a meter is about 3 1/3 inches more than a yard.

1000 metres=1KILO metre. 1 mi= 1.6km (roughly)

Now. How deep was it?

Um, 11000 meters is 6.83508 miles still..
ok ok, you were only 2.16492 to 3.16492 miles off..

Ok the problem I am having is this....

You convert meters to feet not miles which is what I was looking for.

So for 11,000 meters I got this back......36.0892 ' feet.......anyone know what the hell that means?

Never mind as I was posting this it showed me where low had already answered.........but I wrote all that and went and did the conversion so damnit it is getting posted!

anytime youre gonna try to prove an engineer wrong about numbers..
(particularly if you make purty pickshures fer a livin)
use a really good converter that converts everything to everything at once so youre covered.

whew, there for a moment
i thought he got me.
but alas...

ps . i wasnt being a dick..but do you realize how long its been since ive been able to smack an engineer around in the numbers realm, considering i cant pass basic algebra?
I had to..there was no choice in the matter...my pride was at stake..
and i have been redeemed...

See? Frau. Mueller..wherever you are you hairy satanic bitch...

Hey guys,strangely enough..Hmm...the deepest part of out oceans also looks to be very close to the highest mountain,everest,right..I don't have the time right now but if someone could research that and see how similar the marianas trench in a depth/height comparison to Everest,would everest fit inside the marianas trench and still have something to show above the water...you know what i mean..

If you put Mt Everest inside the trench,
there would still be about 7000 feet of water over the top of it.

Really ,it was my belief that Everst was around 7 miles tall...dammit i'll have to research this now....i was pretty sure that everest would be "the winner"...anyway..

Wikipedia says- More recently, the mountain has been found to be 8,848 metres (29,029 ft) high...

And the marianas trench...
It has a maximum depth of about 10,911 meters[1] (35,798 feet; 6.78 miles)

I'm a little bit suprised by that,nonetheless,i come to disclose to seek the truth....I always had a subconcious feeling over the years that Everest was bigger,but it's not....good to know these things,you never know i may end up on who wants to be a millionaire...
