Reams of knowledge

Tim Meehan comes to my mathematical rescue on this question.
Stacked VERTICALLY? As in end to end? That would be much less impressive. Assuming standard "letter" (8 1/2" x 11"): Height of Emipre State Building: 1250' or 15000" 15000 / 11 * 15 = about 20454 sheets of paper. I suspect this is simply a printout of the Cannabis Culture forums from 2001.
The vertical qualifier was missing in the original source I had, but he's right. It's not so impressive that way. It's only about 41 reams of paper. I'd note however, that JackL made a couple of pertinent comments on that post about the absurdity of seizing the computer in the first place, that I missed at the time. Go back and check it out.
