N-barreled shotgun (quintuple)
n-barreled shotgun (quintuple)
Plural: n-barreled shotguns (quintuple)
To explain this object, you first need to posit a research physicist who is trying to solve the n-body problem, where n is a small prime number and 'body' is strictly limited to 'barrels on a shotgun'. Possibly you need to also assume the physicist comes from a lab in another dimension, where the number of barrels on a shotgun affects the projectile outcomes in significantly weird ways. It may not be necessary, but it certainly helps the calculations if you also assume the physicist is spherical. Don't ask me, that's just how it works.
The dial on the shotgun is currently set at 5. There are four other settings: 2, 3, 7, and 11.
