Post Sci-fi spaceship size comparison
Some guy has produced a graphic showing the relative sizes of spaceships in sci-fi, including video games. I thought it was pretty interesting.

Very cool, although the text was still unreadable at the highest resolution version I could find.

I was able to zoom in twice in Firefox and read everything.

Can't decide if this is the coolest thing I've ever seen, the geekiest, or both. :)

Definitely both. Calls out for a log scale version.

I just wish the text in the graphic were searchable so I could easily find my favorites.
