Huh? You couldn't count that "in nature" - it's bigger than the number of particles in the galaxy (IIRC). It's just an incredibly large number. It's countable in the mathematical sense, but not in practice - it'd take longer than the age of the universe. Even if you could count to it, you could easily count to a googleplex +1, which is bigger.
sorry, I meant we CAN'T count in nature...sorry bout that

If you like Google, try this for a few minutes. Some are very easy, some are not!

Guess-the-google

:blink:* What's a google?* :eeeeeh:
A google is a 1 followed by 100 zeros. (10^100)

The largest number we can count right now in nature would be a googleplex, which is a google of googles (hehe, that's funny to say) :bleh: [/b][/quote]
Actually, that's a googol and a googolplex.

A googol is 10^100 all right, but googolplex is 10^googol.

I've heard also a number called googolplexian mentioned, which would be 10^googolplex.

Also, Googolplex is the name of a band I'm in.

Actully, a Google is a number with 26 zeros after the first didgit. Forty five google is:
4500, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000, 000,

GMail's popular cuz it gives you 2, 000MB of free storage.
