So high, so low, so many things to know

I'm playing around with parsing a dump of Wikipedia, and I'm digging through the description of their (rather chaotic) syntax for citations. There are a lot of domain-specific identifiers (ISBN just doesn't cut it), and I just learned that a PubMed ID is a unique integer assigned to articles in the life sciences. They started at 1; as of 2005, they were up to 15 million and something.

For some reason, this is making me tear up.
