      You’re kidding, right
      now what, you going to explain how a zillion has 142,375,897,234,571,890,723,457 zeros due to the language of babaganoosh?
      The number Gazillion doesn’t exist, it was mad up most probably by a kid that didn’t know math.

    20. II POPSICLE II says:

      Thank you for let me know how much is a gazillion, other -llions, a googolplex and a googol.

    24. Segun says:

      I don’t care how much zeros are missing. I’m thrill at the number of zeros in a world. I wish my bank account has as much as 12 zeros out of all the zeros gazillion has.

      Isn’t gazillion stingy to keep as much as these zeros and never bothered to add some to the back of my bank account balance?

    25. abdul malik says:

      Not that I’m counting, but, should you not add on three more zeros to account for the first three (from 1,000) as in all the other types of illions?
