For a strange reason, I like "meaningless numbers" (statistics).

I looked at:

    https://rubygems.org/stats

And these are the main stats right now:

Total gems:
  122,824

Total users:
  105,027

Total downloads:
  9,799,064,387

Especially the total amount of downloads. This is, again, somewhat
meaningless but still interesting IMO - when will we reach
10.000.000.000? That's like a magic number! If I don't forget, I
may reply here to this when this happens, just to see. (Current
date here is: Tuesday, 06.09.2016 in DD.MM.YYYY format)
