Counting to One Million.

Harper of MillionCount is hoping to count to one million (he thinks it's going to take about 3 months) and you can watch him do it on his webcam: (right now, he's at about 40,000) - Thanks Lynanne!

Now, someone else had done something like this in the past actually - typing to one million. It only took him 16 years and 7 months.

Someone forgot to tell this dude that this has already been done, and in a MUCH more interesting way, by artist Jonathan Borofsky. He's been counting -- and not just out loud, but writing it down on paper-- since 1969. He reached the number 3,227,146 in 1975.

A group of us got to a million on Friends Reunited here in the UK just recently. It took us about two years, though we started posting 1 number at a time, but ended up posting batches. We made a lot of cyber friends and had chats along the way, now we don't know what to do with ourselves!

Three months? That lazy lazy man. If you count at a conservative rate of one number every second second for eight hours a day it would only take 69,4 days. Up the pace or count longer every day and that number drops significantly.

Count to one billion instead, that would truly be wasting your life. At the same pace as above it would only take just over 190 years.
