dhw: Oh golly gosh, this really is important and exciting. Nobody has a clue how many billion planets there are in the universe, and nobody has a clue whether any of them harbour life, but wowee we now have an estimate for the Milky Way. By sheer coincidence, I myself am developing a method for estimating the number of Earthlike planets in the entire universe (not just the Milky Way) and for predicting the number of INTELLIGENT CIVILIZATIONS (ICs: pronounced “Icies”) in our universe. This important and exciting research does, however, require funding, and so may I invite everyone who reads this important and exciting post to send at least $1000 to dhw’s FARCIC (Funding Astronomical Research Concerning Intelligent Civilizations) asap. Thank you.

DAVID: Shouldn't we send pounds or euros?

dhw: I’ll take any currency, but I just wanted to make it easier for you, David.


Considering rampant printing press money, Gold?

Bitcoin!
