because D-scan is in km I learned two useful things:

largest 8 bit number is about 2.1 bil
An AU is roughly 150,000,000 km.

makes me feel like I've wasted a little less of my life.


the largest natural number representable by an 8bit unsigned integer is actually 255 (2^8).
Signed 32bit integer representations are roughyl 2.1bil (2^31).

Conclusion: Poster learned only one thing. Proportionally higher fraction of life wasted.
