* When you get right down to it, there is no number that's not real, since numbers go on forever. All that's necessary is to somehow give those numbers an official name. But until then, numbers like 'zillion' or 'gluglomwomalomadumdummillion' will stay non-existent.

* The S.I. prefixes for large numbers go "tera" (trillion), "peta" (quadrillion), "exa" (quintillion), "zetta" (sextillion), and "yotta" (septillion). For the next quanitity 1000 times bigger than yotta, the prefix "hella" was proposed. The mass of the Earth, for instance, would be 6 hellagrams.

* The S.I. prefixes for large numbers go "tera" (trillion), "peta" (quadrillion), "exa" (quintillion), "zetta" (sextillion), and "yotta" (septillion). People can get very creative thinking up prefixes for numbers larger than these.

For the next quanitity 1000 times bigger than yotta, the prefix "hella" was proposed. The mass of the Earth, for instance, would be 6 hellagrams.hellagrams.
** You could, theoretically, string multiple prefixes together, so a megayotta would be one million yotta. The [[HiroshimaAsAUnitOfMeasure length of a football field]], expressed in the super tiny unit called the Planck length, would be a little over 5 terayottaPlanck lengths.

** When Calvin asks Hobbes for help with his math homework, Hobbes notes that it requires calculus and imaginary numbers, "You know, eleventeen, thirty-twelve, and all those." ([[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Imaginary_number Imaginary numbers]], by the way, are a real mathematical concept, but not the way Hobbes puts it.)
