I know a guy who visited an aircraft carrier and told me an incredible stat that
deals with documentation.

First, think of how large an aircraft carrier is. One can usually hold over
5,000 crew and have enough fuel and supplies to be out at sea for six months. It
could hold five consecutive football games *with spectators*-- on the flight
deck alone.

It takes about nine years to build one of these. There is a lot of documentation
that is created for a project of this magnitude.

If you were to take the paper used in all that documentation and stack it on
aircraft carrier . . . the ship would sink.

Is it true? I don't know. This is what he was told during his tour.
