“Mads **** only just figured out this minute why Google is called Go ogle”

A googol is the large number 10100, that is, the digit 1 followed by one hundred zeros:, 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″”
