    I’ve done that before. At my local park, there was 9,185 rocks all together. Quite a lot.

    Standing by Rocks on a Sunny Afternoon

    Whose rocks these are I think I know.
    Their number is a mystery though;
    And thus you see me stopping here
    To count a trillion plus, or so.

    Others must think it very queer
    To embark upon a task so drear
    Doing this until I quake
    Or for at least another year.

    You give your head a puzzled shake
    And ask if there is some mistake.
    My tasks are often quite a leap
    But this one really takes the cake.

    The ground is rich with rocks so deep.
    I’ll count and throw them on a heap,
    With piles to go while I’m asleep,
    With piles to go while I’m asleep.

    (With apologies to Robert Frost.)



    Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

    Whose woods these are I think I know.
    His house is in the village though;
    He will not see me stopping here
    To watch his woods fill up with snow.

    My little horse must think it queer
    To stop without a farmhouse near
    Between the woods and frozen lake
    The darkest evening of the year.

    He gives his harness bells a shake
    To ask if there is some mistake.
    The only other sound’s the sweep
    Of easy wind and downy flake.

    The woods are lovely, dark and deep
    But I have promises to keep,
    And miles to go before I sleep,
    And miles to go before I sleep.

    — Robert Frost (1922)

    Allowing one count per second, absolutely no sleep,
    (and no breaks to eat, drink, and do other things)
    (plus a really, really long life), it would take Calvin over 12,683,916 years to count that high.

    So you’ll be the first to know if one is stolen.

    I’m sure the farmers in Kansas appreciate that “fact.” Glaciation isn’t the only source of rocks.

    Happens to me all the time. When I have a sleepless night, counting sheep or making alphabetical lists is the surest way to keep awake all night.

    @Hobbes

    Thank you, Hobbes. I memorised Frost’s poem in highschool, but like so many other things it fell out of my brain with time.
