It wasn't me. Must have been someone else.
I think you probably don't mean degree. You probably mean the degree
exponent. But if you have an exponent as large as 7, then it's unlikely
you have a power law. Power laws with exponents that large are, in
practice, very hard to tell apart from exponentials or other rapidly
decaying functions, and occur rarely in nature. More likely what you have
is an exponential.
