If there's no dome, how do you explain the irregularities the board discovered in the zoning permits issued in that area!?

#2471 Hippo Attacks 

It's cool how, when there's a number lots of people are curious about, but which isn't easy to measure, some random guess will get cited everywhere and become the universally quoted value. Unrelatedly, did you know there are 850 trillion waves in the ocean?
