	Why do you sign with 'Mike' when your address explicitly states 
Richard?  Is this some sort of 'Bob' thing?

	Anyway, to the question.  If you are wearing a size 10 Nike, then 
you are exactly 25% bigger than I and should therefore use 25% fewer 
toes.  That would be 6.  Now keep in mind that the distribution of toes 
is not exactly even (some toes are bigger than others) but, roughly, you 
can lean on the power bar until your first toe of the second foot gently 
lifts from the ground.

	Just to correlate data, since you wear a size 10, then I would
guess your weight at about 175.  If that is close, then the theoretical
approach would seem to be quite accurate, and the preceding procedure
should proceed without any procedural hickups. 

HTH	:-)
