    Etymology of “Gaz”

    From Gazzen, from Latin “earthly edge”, or end of the earth, abbreviated to gaz (literally 28810 ancient Greek miles, been one full revolution of the globe) So how much is a Gazillion?
    a Gazillion has (28810 x 3) zeros
    a Gazillion has 86430 zeros
    & thus 1 Gazillion is
    $i = 1;
    while ($i < 28810 ) { echo ", 000"; $i = $i + 1; } [/php]

    • Sheldon

      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.

      • The voice of truth

        If it was made* up then how would u explain the Latin language and. The bundles of facts and proofs that tell us that this is try

    • norton shark

      It is nice that you put the British Centillion, however you missed out on adding the British Billion (12 zeroes), British Trillion (18 zeroes), etc.

    • Andrei

      Holy Shet man

    • http://yahoo Andrei

    • David

      every humongous number was ginormous number, that was very good,
      Thank you for let me know how much is a gazillion, other -llions, a googolplex and a googol.

    • Segun

      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?

    • abdul malik

      the answer of zeros is 86430

      • Michelle

        Wow! I didn’t know any of the illions after quadrillion… Learn something new every day. :) Thanks for sharing.

    • Maxim

      I just noticed a mistake in the article. The number of zeros with which the article ends is 86428, which is 2 zeroes short to be a gazillion

    • jerald

      This is great because I had lost count after quadrillion! I’ve always know there was more, but I didn’t know how much more 😉

    • Aoife

      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?

      • Greg

        Ha, I think you’re right! I’ll do some more research :)

      • Philip Harris

        Too true buddy. Well I did count and there were only 86427 zeros. So there are actually only 2 missing.
