Americans typically don't pay much attention to the size of huge areas: we just call them smaller than Rhode Island... or larger than Rhode Island .
Technically, we measure large areas by the acre, but I suspect that only farmers really know how big an acre is.
Most (like me) know that an acre is smaller than Rhode Island.
But I don't know how big Rhode Island is .
A mild-mannered Rhode Island farmer was talking to a Texas rancher: "I've got a nice little ten-acre dairy farm."
Texan, huffing proudly, says: "Well, it takes eight hours to drive all the way across MY ranch."
Rhode Island farmer: "I used to have a truck like that."
