Mega XP ?..?by Clovis_Sangrail (Beadle)

"Want Mega XP? Prepare to have your hopes dashed, join in on the: poll ideas quest 2013 (Don't worry; you've got plenty of time.)"
WTF is a 'Mega XP'?
This message has greeted me every time I've visited this website for the past two years, and the string 'Mega XP' is noplace on the poll ideas page.
I guess I'm just too stupid to figure out how to make the regular or 'super' search forms search for 'Mega XP' as a single string rather than returning results containing "Mega" and "XP", but in poring over results I see that "mega XP" seems to mean something like "lots and lots and lots of eXperience Points"??
Or maybe it doesn't. In any case no, I'm not especially dying to have them, I've no hopes so feel free to dash them, and I like a good non-sequiter as much as the next Nerd/Geek so maybe I'll visit the poll page again. Someday.
"XP is just a number"
No, 'XP' is two letters. '3' , '5.918287271' , '-7' , now *those* things are examples of what we commonly call 'numbers'. Absent 'context', that is (and Perl is all about context, isn't it?). You've got yours, I've got mine, and now (after considerable effort) mine actually includes some glimmer of your contextual notion of 'Mega XP'. I think.
