Because it wouldn't hold Homer's beer.
But my question was
how much cabling does it take to wire a 2D or 3D doughnut/torus
on the back of racks of servers with these Numascale cards,

(Or do they use switches?)
How much cabling?
Does it scale well?
Or will it look like our router on the 3rd floor?
Anyway, it's not as fun as Homer.
