#WDQ - the Wikidata #query is pumping

#Wikidata supports quantities. Consequently #Reasonator has to show available quantities. The obvious next step is: being able to query for quantities.

One of the obvious quantities people like to boast about is the number of cylinders in their motor. Obviously both the motors and their numbers of cylinders have to exist in Wikidata. At this moment there are only two engines with 14 cylinders known.

It is great to be able to find them. This is one kind of miracle. The other miracle is the Wikidata community; they will start pumping huge quantities of quantities in Wikidata. This will really have a big impact on Wikidata because the number of statements per item will mushroom. We live in interesting times.
