000,000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,
000,000 = Googol.

A "1" followed by 303 zeroes is called a centiliion. I'm just to lazy to write all that zeroes.
A googol by the way is a "1" followed by 100 zeroes.
A googolplex is a "1" followed by a googol zeroes.

1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,

000,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000,
000 = Centillion
Well lookie! Look who's lazy after all! I don't think I'll add a googolplex though.

I'm just trying to figure out WHY we need to know the number sextillion, much less googol! Maybe so Oprah can count her money? :)

I'm getting all googol-eyed just looking at it! :)
