Description

In which Hank just gets really nerdy for a while trying to figure out whether it's possible to encode and decode all 24 TB of Wikipedia onto and from a single QR code. Please feel free to check my math and let me know if I got anything wrong.

Decoding a QR Code by hand: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KA8hDldvfv0 (which does a great job of explaining exactly how QR codes work.)

I know I didn't correct for the distortion at the edge of the wide-angle shot, but Henry and I went through the calculation and found that it didn't affect the overall result.
