"Arrrrrrr"

Edit: Apparently that's 172,498,763,089 in base-10. (10x29^7-1)

I thought the joke was that Arrrrrr is pronounced like the letter R, which would correspond to a much smaller number in base 29.

That was the joke (where R=28), but then I realized that "Arrrrrrr" was still a number, so I calculated it while I was bored at work.

I'm a bit surprised the average and median age for this forum is lower than my videogame clan (I want to say our median age is around 30 and the average is probably higher). I guess I just didn't expect that. I'm one of the youngest there having just turned 23 while our founder is in his 40's and we have about 10 members over 60 (also, someone who's like 81, nicest guy).

Turn 58 later this month. Which means, if time moved at the same rate in QC as it does in RL, I would be the same age as Victoria Reed and John Ellicott-Chatham

Is there a reason it's under 16 and not under 18? Also...this poll doesn't account for 16 year olds. I'll fix that to "16 and under".

Just poor wording on my part.

Went through this thread just to find this post:

*headscratch* why not just poll the birthyears instead of age? Age changes, years of birth remain forever.
------------
On an unrelated note:
I cannot be 42 in any base :(

Thinking about it a bit more, you can only be 42 every four years (the first time being at 22, because you need at least base 5 in order to even have a 4). Unless you allow for non-natural bases, but that'd be weird.
Dear past me, please include proofs in your posts. Thank you.

(It's really simple actually. To be 42 in base k, it would mean your age is x=4*k+2 <=> x-2 = 4k. So x-2 must be divisible by 4. That occurs only once in 4 years, obviously.)
