    ....What comes after trillions?

    We'll all know pretty soon as the federal budget expands beyond the trillions.

    I don't know, that's why I'm asking instead of telling! I didn't know I would ever need to know such a number.

    Ooo, I just thought of something! We'll have to start using scientific notation for such large numbers.

    What’s the name for the avalanche of dough that comes after a trillion? I asked Senator-designate Caroline Kennedy, and she said: “Cotillion?” Close enough. By 2011, we’ll need a cotillion-dollar stimulus package to . . . um, “create jobs” and, er, “help middle-class families.” ....Mark Steyn on the Rush Limbaugh show today.

    Get it? Caroline Kenndy....cotillion....Liberal from the Northeast?

    Billion comes from the "bi" prefix, meaning 2.
    Trillion is "tri", or three.
    Quadrillion, then quintillion, septrillion, then....um, let me look it up.....


    I was wrong.

    Sextrillion comes after quintillion. Then comes septrillion, octrillion, & so on

    FYI, 1 million is 10 to the 6th power. 1 trillion is 10 to the 12th power. 1 septrillion is 10 to the 24th power. It is hard to comprehend that large a number.

    And then, try to get your mind behind the fact that there is no gold behind it, the money is printed with almost nothing behind it.

    Have some fun with me, which is the biggest three digit number. Is it 9 to the 9th to the 9th, or is it 9 to the 99th ?

    What would be the largest hexi-decimal three digit number ? (For you software engineers)

    "Power" - that's it, that's where we're headed. The federal budget will not be in dollars but in "powers". Two powers to Defense, 4 powers to Interior, 10 powers to HHS Welfare....

    9 to the 99th power = 2.95127e+94 I believe that is the largest three digit number in the decimal system. 9 to the 9th to the 9th = only 1.96627e+77.

    The largest 3 digit hexidecimal number would be F to the FF, or 15 to the 255th power, which is a value of approx 8.003335e+299. I believe that is the highest three digit number in any recognized math system.

    What comes after trillions?

    Change. Loose change. Digging up lost coins under the sofa. Taking deposit bottles back to the store to get the nickel sort of change.

    Change. It's all we'll have left.

    I had a prof at seminary was a math major.

    One day he was trying to explain some particularly frustrating doctrine and encouraged us to just keep thinking about it.

    "It's like when you are doing calculus", he said (getting visibly excited). "You have this really hard problem and you stay after it and stay after it and finally it clicks in your head and you say to yourself, 'wow, that was easy! Why didn't I get it before'"?

    There was complete silence in the room for several seconds. Finally, someone in the back said, "That's kinda sick" and the room exploded into laughter.

    After reading your last post, I suspect there are people at home saying, "that's kinda sick".:smilewinkgrin:

    peace to you:praying:
