You could also "fit" the real numbers on an arbitrarily small interval, so I don't see how the "length" of the rational numbers in any case would be relevant as a comparison to the reals.
How would you fit the reals?

mathwonk fits the rationals by making a list and using a 1-1 correspondence between every member of his list and a mathwonk 'cut'

Cantor proved the reals cannot be listed.
