If you break the glass in your beamsplitter...

...do you only get 3.5 years of bad luck?

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

Yeah, but it's in stereo, so you have to multiply by 2 ...

Not multiply by 2. Square it! Forty-nine years of bad luck.

On second thought (as 49 seems rather drastic), since we are going from 2 dimensions to 3 dimensions, perhaps we just need to raise the seven to 3/2, which will produce just eighteen and a half years of bad luck.

Either way, donít break it.

3D space has XYZ dimensions, therefore I hasten to suggest it is 7 cubed so, er, mmm, 343 years of dark times ahead....

Oh boy, you'll never get out of that one - bad move, just don't do it!!!
