In computing, FLOPS (for FLoating-point Operations Per Second) is a measure of computer performance, useful in fields of scientific calculations that make heavy use of floating-point calculations. For such cases it is a more accurate measure than the generic instructions per second.

An ObamaFlop is a unit of measure indicating how many users a server can handle before crashing. The basic unit (1 ObamaFlop) is 10,999 users. Otherwise known as the number of users the Obamacare website can handle before crashing.

In standard computing, FLOPS (for FLoating-point Operations Per Second) is a measure of computer performance, useful in fields of scientific calculations that make heavy use of floating-point calculations. For such cases it is a more accurate measure than the generic instructions per second.

Most microprocessors today can do 4 FLOPs per clock cycle.1 Therefore, a single-core 2.5 GHz processor has a theoretical performance of 10 billion FLOPS = 10 GFLOPS.
Mike: 16,498.5 users are trying to sign up for ObamaCare on the website right now.
Doug: Great Scott! Thats 1.5 ObamaFlops the website can't handle that its gonna crash.
Mike: Too late, it crashed. Maybe I'll get easy health insurance tomorrow.
Doug: Unlikely.
