    One googol is 10100. A googolplex is 101 googol. You could not write such a number down. It is not 10124.

    oops error, 10124 is a googol of yottabytes not a googleplex. oops

    a googolplex YB would be 101000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000024 bytes

    After I met Graham's number, the Googolplex is just a fluffy little kitten to me!

    Yeees... well B googleplex^graham+1 is bigger.:tongue2:


    Anyone can make up numbers. Graham's number has the distinction of being the largest number ever used seriously in a mathematical equation.

    How abou pi without a decimal point. I know it's pointless to engage in a "my number is bigger than yours" thing but i find it hard to resist.

    "pi without a decimal point" is not a number.

    infinity is not a number!

    So did Google get its name from this "googol" or is it the other way around. Now I see why they named their main campus at Mountain View the GooglePlex. =D

    I believe that google got its name from an error in spelling. It was supposed to be gogle, but they added an extra o. But I'm not sure about this. I suppose I should google it.

    I've heard the word google far too much in this thread.

    Google needs to die.

    I announce that red will now be a number and no longer a color. I am enthusiastic about numbers and I want more of them! :D
