Well just look at how fast the numbers double:

1, 2, 4, 8,16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048, 4096, 8192, 16384, 32768, 65536, 131072, 262144, 524288, 1048576
2097152
4194304
8388608
16777216
33554432
67108864

2^30 = 1 073 741 824
2^60 = 1.1529215 Ã-- 10^18

2^60 IS NOT one less than 2^61, it's HALF.
