STAR TREK: How Many Tribbles Can You Handle?

The team over at the Movoto novelty real estate blog always come through with some cool stuff to wrap your our minds around and this is no different. Calculate how many Tribbles you could fit into your house with this fun calculator they put together just in time for J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek Into Darkness (out in theaters today).

Star Trek: How Many Tribbles Will Fit in Your House?

These tiny, furry cuties show up in most of the Star Trek shows. While these little guys are really cute, they are major pests. When left unchecked these Furby-like creatures can cause a mess by breeding like some sort of sex-crazed porn rabbits.

Two questions came to mind:

  • How many tribbles would it take to fill your house?
  • How long would it take for tribbles to fill your house?

The Tribbles first showed up in a December 1967 Star Trek episode titled, aptly, “The Trouble with Tribbles”.  Unfortunately, while they were utterly cute and cuddly (except to the Klingons), they ate everything in sight and mated like crazy.  In the end, they were able to save quite a few lives after eating poisoned grain that was meant for innocent people.

Whatever the case may be, I’m sure they’re better than cats.
