Did You ever notice this...........>

WHY SO MANY zeroes on the Google Search results page.... All the credit goes to GoOgOl
Googol which is 10 to the 100th power (i.e 1 followed by 100 zeros.
  • (10100) or
  • 10,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,
    000,000 ,,,,,;;;;;;,,,,,,, quite a big number isnt it or,
  • also known as ten duotrigintillion or ten thousand sexdecillion

Well just 18 out of 100 digits calculates to about some few billion years. This is certainly a veryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy long time...(i don know whether the universe will be existing to even witness Googol), ..Its very surprising to know that just a 9 nine year old named
Milton Sirotta [nephew of American mathematician Dr Kasner] is the mastermind and inventor of googol... Amazing,,,isn't it...

Well I guess GOOLGE derives its name from GOOGOL and not surprisingly it always try to give its user, search results in very high ranges (example
1,680,000,000 results for just the word Google --- Stilll 81 more digits to go for google to get GooGoLED)..... :) :)
