Dog Barks 376,572,715,308 Times

(Video Link)

Yeah, he's one of those dogs. If you live next door, he's going to get on your nerves. Thankfully, he gets all of his barking over quickly. In a mere 4 minutes and 40 seconds, he can bark 376,572,715,308 times. His owner, Jesse Hamel, helps. With a Python script, Hamel multiples each barking iteration 9 times. Soon, your screen and ears fill with barking Gabes.

There are limits to what humans can resolve in sound (and limits to what computers can play...), and you end up with a sound where it doesn't matter how many copies there are, just the overall pattern. This would be just like trying to draw billions of dots on a screen with a couple million pixels, where only the overall pattern matters. In principle, at several thousand barks a second, you could make it sound like just about anything else you wanted to by messing with the pattern.
