Do you know how many pages will be required to print whole of the internet stuff ?

Two British scientists have arrived at the approximate number of pages they say it would take to create a hard copy of everything on the Internet.

The answer: 136 billion standard 8 1/2 by 11-inch pieces of printer paper.

Using Wikipedia as a baseline, the scientists at the University of Leicester in the United Kingdom estimated 4,723,991 * 15 English pages exist on the site only.

further research leads to the result that is 136.2 billion pieces of paper.

Want some more math?

At 500 sheets of paper per ream and each tree yielding 17 reams, it would take 16 million trees to print a hard copy of the Internet.
