    Wow! To think someone may actually get to 10,000 posts.
    At a post a minute = 10000 minutes
    10000 min = 166.667 hrs
    166 hrs = 6.9 days

    Time to get started. 1 post each minute for a week.

    As an engineer, I probably should have been more accurate in my estimate. It's fine for a purely man-hours schedule, but for a calender schedule I need to consider:
    * sleeping
    * eating
    * restroom breaks
    * general fatigue and potential loss of productivity
    * lack of useful things to say
    * average and standard deviation of the average post length to determine if 1 post per minute is even possible (we're not texting or tweeting here)
    * etc, etc, etc.

    In other words, I don't think I'll get there in a week.
