Here's one for the Salty Old Sea Dog

Just seen this on the BBC site.

I could hardly "contain" myself!

I wonder how many Olympic-sized swimming pools it will hold, or even how big it is compared to the area of Wales? Azn

It's said China's economy could not have grown to such an extent if it were not for shipping containers. I saw some "statistic" that it costs less to ship a television from China to the shop than it costs to transport a single screen from the shop to your home.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.

That's what happens when a government heavily subsidises shipping costs to make their country's products more competitively priced than the rest of the world...

@nozzer

Apparently, now we are leaving the EU it's de rigueur to compare things to size the of Belgium and not Wales. 

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.
