    A couple years ago on Lawnsite someone posted about cylinder index.

    What is it?

    It's a measure of your manhood based on the number of internal combustion engine cylinders under your control. If your truck has 8 then you add to it 2 for each 2-cyl piece of equipment. 1 for each 1 cylinder, etc.

    If you are 1-4 then you are a utopian or tree-hugger or something like that. I forgot all the designations.

    Back then I was at about 80 or so. Now I just don't know. I have been buying buying buying. Trucks, wide-area mower, a Caterpillar, and God knows how much Redmax stuff, etc.

    I think you just get a point for every spark plug that is installed in a motor that you own. (not spares sitting in a drawer)

    Anyways mine is a 32.

    But I thought it would be fun to calculate how many HP I own. So far I've thought of 475, I'm sure I'm forgetting one or two little engines.
