a google is one followed by 100 zeros. My question is, what would you do if you had one google dollars?

Google's a compagny. What you mean is googol.

I'd buy a house and various other practical things, and live off of the interests of the rest.

I'd bail out the American deficit, and still have some left over.

Exactly. With the remaining money, I would by a house, a car, some cats, a german shepherd, a cow and, a chicken. Then, I would invest some of it and donate some. All still with enough left live off the interest.

I don't need all of that, so I'd donate a chunk of it to charities, to fixing stuff in several states, the American deficit like mentioned above, then see how much I have left. If I still have a lot left, then I'd get a new house and a whole bunch of other things. Probably purchase some nice apartment buildings and invest in things.

This is what a googol looks like:

10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

America's debt is about 14 trillion, which looks like this:

14,000,000,000,000

I could therefore pay off the debt about this many times:

700,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

Even if I paid off the debt that many times, I would still have this much money:

20,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

In scientific notation, that would be 2x10^97. With that much money, I could then buy every single home in the world. Assuming that there are 4 billion such homes and the average price was 1 million dollars, the cost would be as follows:

4,000,000,000,000,000

That is also known as 4 quadrillion. I could then buy all buildings that aren't homes in the world. For the sake of this post, there are 10 billion such buildings with an average cost of 10 million. The cost would therefore be 100 quadrillion. Adding that to 4 quadrillion would make it this much:

104,000,000,000,000,000

I could repeat the home and building buying process this many times:

190,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

Even if I did that, I would still have this much money left over:

240,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

In scientific notation, that would be 2.4x10^95.

That just shows you how much a googol is.

Bail out the American deficit? Heck, you could bail out the whole world with one googol dollars!

After doing so, I'd probably go buy myself some nice things, after helping the world.

googol is a made up word.

a 1 whit 100 zero's is called "ten duotrigintillion"

Except "duotrigintillion" is hard to say, so a 1 with 10 zeroes is called a googol. A 1 with a googol zeroes is a googolplex.

a 1 whit 600 zero's (the biggest nuber humans have ever counted to) is called a centillion.

there are already words for those big numbers and you will never use those numbers ever in your life. it's useless to change the name of that number. (it's even useless to have that number)

A googol is bigger than 600. Therefore, a googolplex is bigger than a centillion.

I'd do the same thing. And then bail out Greece.

a googol is a 1 whit 100 zero's
a centillion is a 1 whit 600 zero's
wich 1 is bigger?

a "googleplex" is a 1 whit 10.000 zero's
a "centilliard" is a 1 whit 120.000 zero's
wich 1 is bigger?

Wrong. A googolplex is a 1 with a googol zeroes.

what a useless non-sense. i stick to the numbers that people have actualy counted to. except for just making up a name and publish it in a book. saying it's this or that. there is no use for it anyway.
