n. The average number of replies in a thread before a Nazi reference is made. Generally, Godwin's number is regarded to be twenty, based on the equation: G=(d(Q1)+d(Q2)+...+d(Q)n)/100*n^(-n)
where Qn is the intelligence of user n, n is the total number of forum users, and d is a damping function that prevents the intelligence (or lack there of) of one user to influence the others too much.
As he typed his polemic on the forum, John brought the discussion one step closer to Godwin's number.

To prevent discussions from getting out of hand, OmniForums will now calculate Godwin's number based on the first two threads.

Aug 9 Word of the Day
A term coined by Terrson to represent a form of Jenga where one removes an article of clothing whenever the tower falls.
It was a fearsome sight indeed after the tower fell for the last time, after that, strip jenga was forever banned in the lounge.

<Terrson> My name shall not go down in history as the guy who codified Strip Jenga.
Guess again, Terrson.
