The number in the title of this post is two trillion, or two thousand billion, which is the amount of dollars the war in Iraq will according to estimates eventually approximately cost according to some quite knowledgeable people. Do you know what comes after a trillion? A quadrillion! If you think it stops there, you’re wrong. How about a sextillion, or a nonillion, or what about a quinquadecillion? The ultimate number is googolplex. Sounds familiar, somehow 😉

1 Googolplex = 1010100

How long will it take for wars to start costing a few Googolplexes?
