I <3 crazy math @ 03:01 pm

IPv6 has 2^128 addresses
The Earth has 7.9 * 10^17 square inches of surface area (counting the oceans)

Thus 2^128 / (7.9 * 10^17) = 430737173317643624637 addresses per square inch of the Earth.

This is truly information everyone should have at their fingertips. If you having time on your hands results in discoveries like this, I hope, for the sake of the human race, that you never have to go back to work.

It's estimate that the known universe has about 10^80 atoms in it.

Same can be said for GUIDs.

Now if you really want to blow minds, give each ipv6 address its own domain filled with GUIDs.
