The Dunbar number

Over the past two decades, [Dunbar] and other like-minded researchers have discovered groupings of 150 nearly everywhere they looked.

  1. Now that's really interesting! My mind starts racing toward the idea of somehow finding limits upon government within the 150-rule. Perhaps Congress should work only 150 days a year. Perhaps the federal government as a whole should be limited to 150 laws, rules, or regulations per year. Perhaps all laws, rules, and regulations should be limited to 150 words. Well, as you must notice, I am on an anti-government rant-and-rave today. Your posting simply provoked some bizarre notions. Have a great day! And, BTW, I continue to be impressed by all that you, Frank, Jesse, and Vikram manage to accomplish at Books, Inq. Keep it up, and have a great new year!
