The Center of a Tootsie Pop

I think I counted once, and it was something like 463 licks.  Just licks.  The kind that make your tongue numb, and not the kind where you roll it around for extra flavor.  463.  And no biting.

So, in response to the FAQ- Future Asked Questions...
Are you just bored all the time in college?
No, I am not.  In fact, I am extremely delighted in most everything that comes my way.
Then are you insane?
No.  I'm not that, either.

So today, as I was writing a reflection paper for one of my classes, I realized I had a whole bunch of tabs open on my Mozilla Firefox browser.  And yes, I've used Safari and Google Chrome, but neither made emboldening very easy.  And I like my emphasis.

SO I began to open up a whole bunch of tabs.  I thought maybe the limit was 17.
Sadly, it wasn't.
I had to stop, and finish my reflection paper.

Don't fear!  I don't give up that easily.  I began clicking. + + + + + + + + + ++++++++++ + + + + + +++++....
+++ + + ++ + ++ +
 + + + + + + ++
 + + ++ +++++++ + + + ++ ++

100.  200.  300. 400.
Okay, I thought. This must just be lying.  I couldn't actually have 400 tabs open...
So I started deleting tabs to see if I could also delete 400.  20, 26, click click click click.  And then I got frustrated.  Why would I want to count to 400 again?  I mean, I didn't even want to count all of them the first time!  So I exited out of the browser.

"You are about to close 368 tabs.  Are you sure you want to do continue?"


I am currently posting on my 767th tab.  I ensured that "emboldening" was a real word on my 359th tab.

I like that number, 767.  I like 7's.  And the prime factors of 767 are 13 and 59.

So, as far as my patience would go, there are 767 possible tabs in Mozilla Firefox.  This may be updated in the future.

And, today was a fantastic day.

Update:  Today I went on a clicking spree again, and after being stuck in the 1800's for a while, I stopped, and clicked to close my window:
That's right.  Accidentally happened upon our year.


  1. Cameron did that once, too!! I forgot what number of tabs he got up to, though...

  2. Wow! I thought you could only have as many as you could see on the screen. You've shown me more in life!

    Psst! "Hi Suzanne!"

  3. Hahaha, it was quite fun! But now my class makes fun of me ... so I may not look to the limit of tabs anymore.
