How many zeroes is a squidillian?

and of course, squidillian uno is a squidillian plus one.

A squid is 8, obviously, so a squidillian should be 86 = 262144.

When a squid gets ill it must lose value then, since it becomes £6.

How would you tell squid (£6) from squid (£7)?

Oh.

Apparently "squid" is occasionally used by northeners to mean "quid", according to linguistics.SE

Beehony doesn't sound quite the same. Maybe if you'd spell it B-hony and gave the name to your inferior sibling.

Wow, how did I miss that pun, Miss Pun?!

I don't think marionic is considering a name change, but I'll bear it in mind if he ever expresses dissatisfaction with his current name.

Around 60-ish give or take a few. If you are in Alaska, I might retract my statement.

In the winter we get freezing cold but hardly any snow. :(

The year before last we had 4.32 meters of snow.

Last year we had less than a meter of snow, so i guess it averages out.

I'm guessing that's the total amount of precipitation and not the actual height of the snow at one single point in time? Or is the effect of the Gulf stream really that large? I don't know how well we would measure up with you if it's the former. But a couple of years ago it snowed so much in one afternoon that they had to cancel all schools in Stockholm (we don't do that here normally, regardless of the amount of snowfall) and I got snowed in at uni without a way to get home.

I don't know about amount of precipitation expressed in terms of height, but I don't think we've even had a consecutive 7 days of snow since I was very young.

7 consecutive days of snowfall? Or 7 consecutive days of snow on ground?

7 consecutive days where each day contained at least some snowfall.

Maximum height was just under 2 meters, for about a month. We had a pair of months where it snowed every other day, 4-7 cm at a time.

That's still a lot more than we usually get. Or maybe we're the same, but I'm a city boy that hasn't experienced a winter without extensive and frequent ploughing.
