                            I'm not sure if talking about solving the ART calculation, but then not including it due to lack of whiteboard space is a reference to Fermat's Last Theorem, but I think it might be funnier if it isn't. Art imitates life imitates art.

                                                      It’s appropriate that 24K REIGEN is in the recommended lists

Is Bdg even a real unit then? Because Celeste is then at the same time 1 bdg, 1quadrillion bdg, 1quadrillion² bdg, 1quadrillion³ bdg, and so on
