(from a random walk through the internet)

            size [m]    jumps [m]             ratio
man         2            8                        4(*)
grasshopper 2e-2         4e-1(*)                 20
electron    2*3e-15      5e-11 (Bohr radius)   8000(*)  

(*) my calculation

That's one small step for electricity, one giant leap for an electron...
Based on the above evidence a 10m Python should jump 80 kilometers (50
miles), so beware...
