Stupid crap that I do for fun

Tonight I decided to calculate the approximate number of air molecules in our house.

Guess what I came up with?

1.067 x 10^28 (scientific notation). For those who hate scientific notation, the fully typed out number is: 10,670,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.

Holy hanna. These little buggers are making 10 billion collions per second and traveling at a rate of about 1152 miles per hour (this calculation is based off 515 meters per second... I converted it to miles per hour since we seem to like the English system so much and "miles per hour" is just plain fun).

This is one crazy place. I'm glad I can't see what's going on.

Get to know your neighbor, be a gas molecule-
