A friend and I stayed up late and did a lot of math, and this is what I came up with; it would take 386 trillion trillion years to wear down a metal sphere ( I used aluminum for the equation ) ten times the size of Jupiter, to the size of a pea, hitting it once every thousand years with a swipe of a single feather ( assuming the feather removes 10 micrograms of material with each swipe. For comparison, a fingerprint weighs 50 micrograms.) Here is the number in long format.
The known universe is only 14 billion years old. Randys number has 16 more zeros.
And remember, this 386 trillion trillion years is only half a blink, in the place you're gonna be.
Math checks and comments welcome.
Thank you guys so much for hitting up Indiana on your tour! Very much looking forward to the show in Bloomington, and hearing some songs from the new album! Hope you're staying safe, healthy and happy in your travels.
