To improve on this formula even more I have added laws to it:
1. If the post is serious, Lulz = 1
2. Lulz is the amount of Lulz worthy statements (average user favorites)
3. Rage is plus or minus depending on if Lulz is present (If lulz is present rage is positive)
4. Sexual content also accounts for innuendos
5.Powerful title is either .5 or 1 depending on if it is a easily followed title
6. If epicness is undefined, a negative number, or zero, than the thread is truly not epic

Now if you graph the equation, you can see the life time of the thread. This accounts for its potential epicness, its highest level of epicness, and the length of its popularity.

I will be sure to credit all the contributors to this formula at the Nobel Prize ceremony.

Posting while plastered is the simplified formula for epic threads. Remember?

Now do we need to calculate the probability of us getting an award?

I couldn't agree more ;D
The UIP and I are still working on improving this formula to generate even more accurate results. If you click my signature, you can receive the newest updates to the Plaster Formula.

Hmmm... if you could even calculate epicness of threads, this formula /could/ be used, but it has got a few flaws.
If either P, E, R or L is 0, there is no possible outcome, because either multiplying with/dividing by 0 is impossible ^^

There are laws that regulate those variables to avoid that problem, but R is still being a problem child.
