I like this quotation

October 10, 2008

It’s from here

There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it’s only a hundred billion. It’s less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers.

by Richard Feynman, US educator & physicist (1918 – 1988)

The US debt is having a free fall and I heard that they are adding 2 digits to this display. To save a few dollars on reworking they might as well add 5 digits.
