                          7 times lighter than air? Compared to?


                          50,000 times thinner than human hair? Here I have 3 issues.
                          1) compared to what?
                          2) who's hair? Usually, true blonds have measurably thinner hair than brunettes or even redheads. Yes, it works to say X amount thinner, just not X times thinner
                          3) from what part of the body? The hair on my arms are much thinner than the hair on my head, and I have even thicker hair elsewhere.


                          Now I know that you didn't write the information that you are relating, but making comparisons in that direction just doesn't work in my mind. You see, you can say something is X times thicker than something and it makes sense to me, but when you say X times thinner than something you need to compare it to another thing or again it doesn't make sense to me. What length is 10 times shorter than an inch? What weight is 10 times less than a pound?


                          There are ads on TV of that sort which have been bugging me for a long time.
