    Well, there is but the calculation is different. You took pi squared and multiplied it by one thousand, but what I heard from the masters of the order is that you need kilopi squared, so in other words about 9.8 million posts. Itís quite a hurdle.

    It's kilo(pi squared) rather than (kilopi) squared.

    Actually, you're right! And that's how many people it takes to do it. One to hold the bulb and 11,110 to turn the building.

    How many does it take to do that? Asking for the F&G forum.

    If I get to be a kilopi, can I use the special washroom? Do I get a key? Is there a handshake? Where is the secret kilopi thread that tells me all this?
    There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.
