Hello. I'm a bureaucrat at the Ben 10 wiki, and I'm here to help this wiki become as good as the series. Initially, I believed I'd be able to clean this wiki up in a few weeks, but it's a little more complicated than I expected, and I think this wiki could benefit from a bot. As per Wikia's policy, all bot requests must have community approval, so please voice your support/opposition here. I already use a bot on the Ben 10 wiki; you can check my work there if you'd like.
So, I did these calculations years ago (shortly after "Mannequin 3: The Reckoning" aired), but I had hoped others had too and waited for them to post. Then I went AWOL from this wiki for years. Seeing as how nobody has posted this since then, I guess I will.
I was curious: just how long did Sam's soul spend in Lucifer's Cage for it to feel like it had been "skinned alive"? How long must it have been in there for it to be able to kill Sam or otherwise severely damage his psyche?
With the time frame provided in "Mannequin 3: The Reckoning" (1-2 minutes on Earth = 1 week in the cage), I calculated that Sam spent from 5,040 to 10,080 years (approximately 5 to 10 millennia) in Lucifer's Cage. That's 126 to 252 times Dean's "stay" in Hell. So, why did…
