Printing The Web

Google claims that they've indexed 8,058,044,651 Web pages. Let's assume that the average Web document, when printed, uses two sheets of paper. Using a 10-page-per-minute printer, it would take 3,066 years to print the entire Web.

A stack of 500 sheets of paper is 2 inches high. Therefore, the stack of pages representing the printed Web would be 1,017 miles high.

If you laid these pages end to end (assuming 11-inch pages), they would stretch 2,797,932 miles -- enough to go to the Moon and back six times., or enough to wrap around the Earth 112 times.
