The Main Differences between Godzilla and a Water Heater
We all know about the many similarities between Godzilla and a water heater - they can both make a lot of noise, they can both spout hot steam etc. But there are more differences between Godzilla and a water heater than there are similarities.
Here are the major differences between Godzilla and a water heater:

- Weight: Godzilla is much heavier than any water heater. A water heater can weigh up to 200 lbs: Godzilla weighs up to 60,000 tons;

- Durability: Godzilla is much more durable than any water heater. Water heaters can be destroyed by rust; Godzilla, having survived a nuclear attack, can't be destroyed by anything short of a nuclear attack;
- Names: The water heater is known by other names, including hot water heaters, hot water tanks, boilers, heat exchangers, geysers, or calorifiers: the name "Godzilla" is a mix of the Japanese words gorira ("gorilla") and kujira ("whale"). Godzilla is also known as "Gojira" or "Gozira";
