The internet world is fascinated by photos of “absolute units”. Try to imagine something extremely round and hearty compared to its peers: gigantic crabs, chonky cats or insanely huge hearts of blue whales. Whether it’s animals, food or plants, things that are so out of proportion to its surrounding catches anyone’s eye.
If you want to see it for yourself, there’s a whole subreddit about it. It’s called Absolute Units and its community has grown into almost 1M members over the last four years. As one of the rules there states, “Absolute units only. No normal units,” and it’s true. We didn’t even think things could get this big.
