Diseducational television

I’m watching the relatively good science show Nova Science Now, and the narrator just referred to birds having a brain “a thousand times smaller than ours”. Really? What is the measurement of how small something is, that this is a thousand times that? Kind of sad to see this sloppy, “twice as less” sort of speech slipping into a smart show.
