Your Menelik number is calculated by dividing your age at your closest birthday (ie, if you turn 20 in three months, put 20, not 19) by the number of countries you've visited.

For example, John is 21 and has been to Sweden, Finland, Germany, Thailand, Indonesia and New Zealand, as well as his native Australia. He has a Menelik number of 3 (21/7). Ann is 34 and has visited Mexico and Jamaica; she's from the USA. She has an MN of 11.67 (35/3), because her birthday is in 6 weeks. Gordon is 12 and has been to Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal, the USA, Canada, Belgium, Luxembourg, Italy, the Vatican City, the Netherlands and Egypt; he's British. His MN is 0.92 (12/13)

Mine is either 3.29 or 3.83, depending on what you count Smiley

Mine is 0.92. That's not counting the Vatican City, travelling through Luxembourg by car, Bonaire or Curacao (since the last two aren't sovereign states).

Same here.  The closest I've been is flying over southern Canadian airspace.

28/USA, St. Maarten, Mexico = 9.3? I'm not counting Belize since I never actually set foot on the mainland, just went to an island and coral reef. Definitely not counting the places I've only been in proximity to via a cruise ship. Believe me, I wish the number were lower.

Currently I stand at 3.47. However, my list of visited countries hasn't changed since 1999. Then my value was 2.73. My lowest value was in 1994 at 2.57. My maximum value was 21 in 1979.

25/ (UK + France + Russia + UAE + Pakistan + Singapore + Thailand + China Mainland + Hong Kong + South Korea + Japan + Canada + USA + Mexico + The Bahamas) =1.66666667

Lowest was .25 when I was 1, with US, UK, Canada and Pakistan.

Wish I had more Middle East and Europe.

2.67, or 2 if you count airport stopovers (and you really shouldn't). Will be 2.29 (or, if you wish, 1.78) in a month and a half.

Update reading list

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

24 / (US, Mexico, Indonesia, Australia, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Austria, Italy, Vatican City, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, France, the Netherlands) = 1.7

Clearly that means I am a supremely cultured and well-rounded individual.
