One Bajillion is defined as the quantity . That's right. TentotheForty Two. Time to get started working out your conspiracy theories. But they're all wrong. It's just . That's it.
A bajillion bajillion is defined as being just beyond your pathetic realm of comprehension. So I won't even bother going into it further.
Representation
Some people have trouble comprehending how big a number a bajillion is. Some people don't graduate high school. But for all you who are having some trouble... or didn't graduate highschool, here we go.
Regular Old Number
1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
There, that doesn't look so bad, does it?
Weasels
Think about it, though. Imagine ten weasels. Then ten times that amount. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times that. Then ten times THAT.
That's a lot of weasels.
Carbon
If you had a bajillion carbon12 atoms, it would weigh roughly 20,000,000 teragrams. ( pounds).
That's a lot of carbon.
Conclusion
From the previous two examples, we can see, despite the first example, a bajillion is a lot. Like a real lot.
