With a googol dollars you could basically become Lord of the Universe.  We're talking about an amount of money that, if you were to use a single atom to represent each dollar, would require a universe that is at least 100 billion times larger than the one we know about.  I don't think a lot of people here appreciate just how vast a number this is.

You're thinking of googolplex and your exaggerating that a bit. It is bigger then the universe but not 100 billion times. Also, you wouldn't become lord of the universe because the money would be worthless anywhere but earth.

I would probably get whatever I want like a xbox 360 because I only have a wii and it sucks horses!

Hehe I am not exaggerating.  If anything I am understating it somewhat.

1) 100 billion = 10^11

2) A googol = 10^100

3) Estimated numbers of elementary particles in the observable universe = usually estimated between 10^80 and 10^89.

A googol (10^100) is therefore 100 billion times larger than 10^89.

Note elementary particles are the stuff that atoms are made of - they are vastly SMALLER.  If we take just atoms it's closer to 10^80 than 10^89.  So it's possible that you'd need a universe that is VASTLY bigger than 100 billion times the size of our known one if you use a single atom to count a single dollar.

A googolplex is 10^10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,
000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000

It is V A S T L Y bigger than a googol which is at least 100 billion times larger than the upper estimate for numbers of elementary particles in our known universe.

BTW, if you could somehow obtain a googol dollars then you would need to have God like powers in order to do that.  I think Lord of the Universe isn't far of the mark. ;)

The whole observable universe doesn't even have enough space to contain a physical amount of Googol dollars (even if every dollar was as tiny as a grain of salt) :P.
Well, back to the question, I would buy anything I see and I would still have enough money for 1+ trillion years to come even if I spend 1 billion$ every day.!

Well first I would pay off the American deficit, like others, then I would buy all the clothes I want (Yes I'm a dude, just obsessed with dressing nice) so bassically any male clothing from Hollister, AE, Aeropastle, and a lot of suits and tux's. Then I would buy a house, the car of my dreams, and I would donate 1 Billion to charity

Pay off the global deficit, rig the elections, donate 750 billion to charity, destroy the meat industry, and burn all the rest until I had 100 billion left to prevent hyper-inflation.
