How Big is the Solar System?

The National Optical Astronomy Observatory (no I hadn't heard of them either) posted an article a few years ago concerning problems associated with visualizing the distances and sizes associated with the solar system. I had been thinking about this for a few days and this was very helpful. Hundreds of yards of space and planets the size of peppercorns... Wow. Just, wow.
