    I too am small by Mount Rushmore standards Agnes. And sometimes people have even accused me of being a log. Still, it’s not me.

    Yeah, the difference between 800,000 popsicle sticks and 27 popsicle sticks seems huge…
    but it probably can’t even be discerned as a percentage of Mount Rushmore….
    not when expressed in three or even six significant figures.


    So…. they’re statistically the same.


    Bravo, Agnes!

    Not quite, sunshine.

    If you took 27 popsicle sticks and made flat triangles and stacked them into a larger triangle, they’d cover about 2 square feet. 800,000 of them in the same arrangement would cover 66,667 square feet. The 4 faces on Rushmore (assuming they were all square in shape) would only be 14,000 square feet. So the 800,000 sticks would cover the faces about 4 times over.

    Now if you took the size of the whole section of exposed rock around the heads, you might be talking roughly in the area of 500,000-1,000,000 square feet. That’s still, at best, maybe 15 times the size of the larger triangle and that larger triangle is still some 33,000 times larger than Agnes’ sculpture.

    Let’s take the whole side of the mountain or maybe 200,000,000 square feet. We’re still only talking about 3000 times larger than the larger triangle. So you’d need TEN Rushmores before you could say “these Rushmores are to the 800,000 sticks as the 800,000 sticks are to the 27” and even MORE Rushmores before the 800,000 vs 27 pales by comparison.

    So no matter how you look at it, there’s no comparison but it’s in the OTHER way.

    Three statisticians were on a safari when they were charged by a lion.
    .
    The first statistician fired at the lion and hit three feet to the left.
    .
    The second statistician fired at the lion and hit three feet to the right.
    .
    The third statistician said, “Well, on average I guess we got him.”

    (They were only saved when Agnes crushed the lion with her Mount Rushmorian sculpture.)

    Agnes’ sculpture would look like Mount Rushmore … to ants…

    there is no small art, only small art critics.

    No one told me I had to do math!

    The sculpture still stands…. therefore it is good. Well done Agnes.
