What would you do? I'd buy a dinghy
to tell me how many penny sweets i could buy.

and breed them.
And float them out to sea in my dinghy.
with their sharp teeth and claws.
"next time we won't be so lucky"
by people who deal with big numbers......after a trillion comes a quadrillion
but centillion is the highest number ending in 'illion' and is much, much larger than quadrillion.
sextillion, septillion, octillian, nonillian, dectillion surely
which makes me a momoillian
It is true that it is not a number that is used by people who deal in big numbers....wiki backs this up and confirms that the largest number that tends to be used is quadrillion,indeed this is the largest unit that I use, the others are just fanciful.....It seems I was right about the order in having dec after non.....although cent was postulated asa being much bigger 100 to the 303 or something silly......this is not a real number that is used, for scientific calculations we use to the 'to the power of'
In business I have done sums in terms of trillions sometimes and have used this as a unit.
I acknowledge though that someone has named it (although you might as well call something a squillion)
no point to it.
This is obviously not a serious thread.
a serious business and should NEVER EVER be taken lightly
I'm not entirely sure what numbers are
(god Im soooooo competative)

Then get that jetpack i've always had a hankering for.
effgy of Tom Waits entirely from potash and ants

I'd buy a nice places to live for myself and my family. And nice things to have in them.
I'd have A LOT of pets.
And start covering myself in tattoos.
I'd also build an art studio and use some of the money to attempt to promote and distibute artwork. I'd do this for my arty friends also.
Uh.. I'd have an army of elephants that carry my cotton and wool mansion on their backs around the world.
spend the rest of my life wandering about, just knowing that it was there.
the cd came :D
Did you like the CD?
get me some operation to have a tail (and maybe some wings)
I would buy Africa and enslave its peoples
