something went seriously wrong in the few preceeding posts. i mean, tao star, really - who's been replacing bottles? more to the point, how big is this wall?

i'm assuming you can't stack bottles, and supposing each bottle has a base diameter of, ooh, say 6cm

17^2 bottles per square metre - that's 289, then 1,000,000,000 / 289 = a wall of side 1860m, square

so we're looking, minimally, at a square with sides up to 2km long. but then that's not a wall - it's an edifice. so let's assume a maximum wall width of 5m [e.g. hadrian's wall, great wall of china, etc].

that's still approx 700km long. hmm.

I THEREFORE DEDUCE that this wall is, most likely, the great wall of china.

it's amazing what you can do with logic.

soo, to continue the interesting math, assume average alcohol content of 5 percent and that it is a 12 oz beer (you can tell i'm american). that makes .6 oz of ethyl alcohol per bottle. now multiply by 1 000 000 000 and get 600 000 000 oz of pure ethyl alcohol. in liters, that becomes... 17 744 117.8 liters of pure ethyl alcohol... when I spin green, I usually add 30 cubic centimeters of boric acid per liter of fuel... that makes 532 323 534 cc's of boric acid required, also... 532.323534 cubic meters of boric acid required. Unfortunately, green glass is not made with boron, but with iron and chromium, so we can't get it there... now its someone else's turn to make the monkeys fists.
