Default Cylinder happiness index

I pirated this from another forum cause I thought it would be fun to compare everyone's happiness/badness/madness quotient as illustrated by the number of engine cylinders in your stable.

Basically you list every engine or machine you own and the number of cylinders in it.
The final total will be your level of happiness, or badness..............or maybe pain.
No extra points for turbos or diesel. No counting stuff owned by your business, just personal inventory.
I'll start

WellCraft 2900 16 cylinders
F-250 8 cylinders
VW Jetta 4 cylinders
Kubota L4340 4 cylinders
Toyota Highlander 6 cylinders
Husqvarna MZ6128 mower 2 cylinders
Polaris Ranger 2 cylinders
Husqvarna brush cutter 1 cylinder
Husqvarna weed trimmer 1 cylinder
Husqvarna 562 chain saw 1 cylinder
Dodge Sprinter van 5 cylinders

Total 50 ...........no wonder my shop looks like a quick lube joint.

PS.forgot the roto tiller. 51
