Some people on this site seem to have no idea how long something is, so they say that they want at least 12", but how big is that really? Here are some comparisons: A can of soda is 5" long. A dollar bill is 6" long. A DVD case is 7.5" long. A bottle of water is 8.5" long. A 20 oz bottle of soda is 9" long. A tri-fold wallet (opened) is 10" long. A sheet of paper is 11" long. Average laptop is 12" across. So think about that the next time someone posts their size, or what they want.
