    The internet's a big place. Perhaps if you shared the link where you found the figure 18000, some help will come your way to explain what it means. :smile:

    Yeah, the internet sometimes just gives you strange numbers. When I search "what is the answer to life, the universe and everything?" it just gives me "42". Now, what's that supposed to mean? I'm also wondering if it is a constant or something that can be calculated. It also didn't show me the units.
