I hope to be long dead before we exhaust >4 billion ASNs.  If I'm
still alive then, someone probably transferred my brain into a
positronic neural network, and Earth is long since uninhabitable by
organic life.  But I wouldn't doubt if some threads like this are

Hm.  I think I need to get some lunch before the office cafeteria closes.
