    Hence, the number of rods one can own is infinite.

    Storage space and financial limitations may apply.

    Given enough resources (and possibly less women) we may need a bigger planet.

    His rods vs her shoes in the boot household As you can see I have about reached my threshold,whereas she has not. Diminshing returns to scale hit me somewhere between 5 and 6 rods, closest to what- for me- is my hoarder threshold. I have a harder time getting rid of books or music than I do rods.

    Why does the plot of her shoes look like a saw? Does she get rid of shoes on a regular basis? My wife sure doesn't.
