You could, but it requires you to give me your bank account numbers.

And with that, I have MMDCLXXIII posts.


Did you know you could add (parentheses) around the numerals to increase them thousandfold?


So even tho a 10,000 symbol doesn't exist, you could write Skulker's post count thusly:


(X)(V)CCXXXVIII

Positional (place value) notation was a pretty neat invention. That is all.
