Ah, so if we're going by the studio version, it's "An interminably, unjustifiably large number which causes the threads to drag on and on and on and on far past what they reasonably should have"? :P

Ah, so if we're going by the studio version, it's "A more than justifiably large number which causes the threads to continue on and on and on and on about the wonderful gem of a song U2 has decided to finally play after years of wanting and yearning "? :P

There's a mathematical formula to answer this

Mercy Threads >/= (atyclb threads + htdaab threads + 1)
