  1. “Googol is a number that has a hundred zeros after it” is actually a moderately known fact, so Dave, it is very possible that Johnny did know that already.

  2. Did you know it was the 1,000,000 question on “Who Wants To Be a Millionaire” (UK) when Charles Ingram cheated and won the million pound prize?

    That a googol is 1 to the power 100

    Search it, its true 😉

  3. Hi guys,

    Question for you!

    What is the name of the number formed by 1 followed by a gogol of zeros?
    Or, if I may 10 to the power of gogol?

    I want your opinion on that! And how big do you think that number is? You know: how long, how much time it would take to write it down and stuff like that!

    Thanks
    Alexandru D.
