Alibaba

433,415,412.67
Crayon dimensions: Length = 3.661417 inches http://www.jcsw.com/John/Rocketry/crayons.html
True Earth circumference: 25,046 miles
http://128.113.165.216/MS99/WhitneyW/eratos_how.html

25046 (miles) X 5280 (feet in mile) X 12 (inches in foot) =
True Earth circumference: 1,586,914,560 (inches)
