Explain to me again how gas bills may be used to predict intelligent life ...

From my gas bill:

Total gas used: 9 Units = 284 kWh

We convert your units to kilowatt hours in the following way:

gas units used x imperial to metric conversion factor [2.83] truncated to one decimal place x volume conversion factor [1.022640] x calorific factor [39.4] divided by kilowatt hour conversion factor [3.6] = kilowatt hours used.

Anyone else reminded of the Drake Equation?
