Bloody Large!

Take a piece of paper.
Write the number 1.
Follow it with 100 zeros.
This is 10 to the power of 100 (10^100) or a Googol.

Take another, much larger, piece of paper.
Write the number 1.
Follow it with Googol zeros.
This is 10 to the power of Googol or a Googolplex.

This number is so big that it encompasses everything and more. Don't bother trying to write it down. There isn't enough atoms in the universe to make the ink required to write it.

More examples of the imense size of this number are on The Googolplex Page.
