nine hundred and ninety nine million nine hundred and ninety nine thousand nine hundred and ninety nine hanging on a wall nine hundred and ninety ninemillion nine hundred and ninety nine thousand nine hundred and ninety seven green bottles hanging on a wall and if one green bottle should accidently fall they'll be nine hundred and ninety nine million nine hundred and ninety nine thousand nine hundred and ninety six green bottles hanging on the wall...


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.



But...if the wall is five metres long only the bottles on the outside can actually "fall off" as the others would just topple and lie flat on the wall. So how long would it be if it was only as wide as the bottle itself to ensure 100% bottle fall off rates maintaining the song? I mean....."if 1 green bottle, should accidentally fall but still stay lying on top without dropping to the floor, there'll be exactly the same amount of bottle, hanging on the wall"

But then again....how do bottles "hang on" a wall? Surely they must be either attached to someking of hoop or ring so they hang freely 'under' the wall or 'sit on' the wall. Unless they're all 14 years old and are simply "hanging aruond" the wall cuz the council took away all the playing fields to build houses on confused

i might even hail myself as the second coming.
in fact, there's a green bottle bin near my house.
i'm off to test my miracle skills.

but first...

*pokes an imaginary green bottle off a really long wall*

nine hundred and ninety nine million, nine hundred and ninety nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety one green bottles sitting on a wall, nine hundred and ninety nine million, nine hundred and ninety nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety one green bottles sitting on a wall, and if one green bottle should accidentally fall, there'd be nine hundred and ninety nine million, nine hundred and ninety nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety green bottles sitting on a wall...

Well at the moment we've only had a few fall off, there is no reason why they all have to fall. I think the edge ones alone will take us up to the treads being deleted anyway.

Also, I think bottles stand not sit, or are these odd shaped bottles?

you could equally have started a thread that said "count down from a 1,000,000,000 - every post means one off of the count - go!".

the fact that you essentially did that and got away with it is the genius part biggrin

You did more than "'accidnetally getting it wrong'".. (and it made me smile when I realised, having completly missed it the first time)



Thats the sort of thing..



Im just waiting for some 1Watt lightbulb to let off a nuclear bomb near the bottles, thus destroying them all in one fell swoop.

It could be worse, we could be using the British definition of Billion.
If we were, we'd still have Nine hundred and ninety nine thousand, nine hundred and ninety nine million, nine hundred and ninety nine thousand nine hundred and ninety eight bottles left.
