Well -- copper BB's are usually copper coated. Let's assume it is SOLID copper... BB's weigh 5.28 grains at ~6mm; but that is copper coated. I don't remember my density formula at the moment. Let's call it 5 grains.
Copper has a molar mass of ~63.5 g/mol. One mole of an element is defined as 6.022 x 10^23 -- so there's that many atoms in 63.5g of copper. That will give us 9.5 x 10^21 atoms in ONE g of Cu.
Your copper BB storage device would hold roughly:
That's 40 zettabytes or 40 sextillion bytes.
I found it a whole lot easier to just turn Windows off.

Good. I'm glad she's dead. Stupid is what stupid does.

Why not blame those who made the alcohol? They're more to blame IMHO. Dumb ass lawsuit.
My question would be, just how high can you get before you miss a whole number?
Infinity (or whatever arbitrary limit of single-arity operations might be applied). I know it's considered gauche around here to read the source article, much less a video, but it gives the formula and process which allows any integer to be reached.
With "sqrt()" being the square root function:
The log base sqrt(4)/4 of [log base 4 of sqrt(4)] = 1.
The log base sqrt(4)/4 of [log base 4 of sqrt(sqrt(4))] = 2.
The log base sqrt(4)/4 of [log base 4 of sqrt(sqrt(sqrt(4)))] = 3.
The number of times the square root function has been applied in the inner logarithm, is the integer which results from the formula. Therefore, you can create any positive whole number with four fours (and an indefinite number of operations).
I'm sure this will go over the drunks real well, I mean go over real well with all the drunks. Either way it'll be fun to watch.

Four flat tires. Cut the stems off.
I'm trying to understand *how* this is happening.
First I always change the admin password. Manufacturers should require this, step 1, before the device will work. Problem 1 solved.
I use a router. UPnP is always disabled. Thus:
The IoT devices should also be configured to work "openly" (IMHO) if they're on 192.168, 169.254, or a 10. DHCP'd network. Are people plugging them into a ISP port directly giving it full inbound access from the Internet? I've never set one up that way. Only a router.
I guess now I expect people to know which port and how to open it up. I'm paranoid enough to not do that even directly -- ie: all video sources are aggregated to a server which *is* open on one https port. I know to except my self-signed certificate. Yeah, I guess this should be easier if security is required (it should be).
I won't use Comcast to check / open my garage door remotely. I wrote my own program. The idea of using *any* service provider with access to my cameras isn't going to happen.
What users need is a touch-screen router with easy setup buttons for user specific settings (port, type, etc), and a menu for known IoT devices: ie swipe to find Frigidaire milk cam, enter admin password. Configured.
Only the router goes to the ISP.
Overbooking flights is the least of the problems that you (or I) have with the Airlines. Frankly, flying just sucks all around now.
How many seats can we cram in? How many more rows can we stuff them into? How small can we make the bathroom. Just how bad can the food get? What else can we possibly do to charge these slimy people we call customers? How much more miserable can we make them???
It's why I don't fly that much anymore. I'm talking maybe one flight every ten years now. If I can drive it -- I will. It's the reason I bought a really really nice fucking car.
Let's see -- be at the airport 2-3 hours BEFORE the flight. I remember showing up half and hour before the flight and it was no problem. That was then. This is now. It takes another hour to get to the airport (my problem, but now theirs). Sometimes two hours if traffic is shit like it is during the holidays. Plus flight time to get where ever I'm trying to go. Plus another hour or two at the other end to get to the final destination after getting a car, etc. Add it all up...it's almost 10-12 hours to get somewhere within 5 hours of flight. I can drive that in a couple of days -- and here's the thing
Thank god I don't need to travel for business. Suckers.
I wish I could drive to Hawaii. That flight sucks...
I remember going to the movies. Then the seats started getting smaller and smaller. Cram more people in. Just like the airlines. I stopped going there too. Except one recent movie trip -- and I was blown away. HUGE electric reclining seats. Almost as good as the ones in my home built theatre. I may just go back again.
Funny -- if the airlines would charge me TWICE as much, and cut the bullshit charges along the way. Remove half the rows (or more now) and give me a nice big lav -- perhaps the entire tail section would be nice. You know, make it like it was in the 60's and 70's
Oh, and fuck United. I am a Delta share holder. LOL
I've said it before, and I'm sure I'll say it again: FUCK MICROSOFT
Fortunately for me, myself, and I don't use their product(s) anymore. Haven't for over a decade now.
And thankfully, where we must (accounting at work)
Fuck Microsoft. See, I said it again.
