  1. Great info! Thanks!

    I never realized how big numbers can be until I decided to count all the entries in the white pages until I counted a septillion number of entries. I started when I was 8 years old, and 51 years later, I’ve counted a a little over a trillion entries, and I’ve got three warehouses full of old phone books. If I do that a trillion more times, I’ll be there. I think I’ll reset my goal, and just go for 2 trillion names counted. I might over a hundred when get there, but danged it’ll be worth it!
    I love big numbers!
