Did a mountain ever spring up in the middle of the raised floor room :-)

That was our rationale (at a company in Denver I worked at) ... in case
it did, we would be prepared!

I suppose we have a new measure of steel toe strength, measured in
either U2's (the 7000 sounds like 8 U2 units) or perhaps for larger
values, E10Ks  (about 300 U2s in an E10K).

So a boot able to handle a crore of U2s would be a great boot to have.
