Just a final word on numbers...

>googolplex

well, lets see... how do i explain it.

just like a googol is 1 followed by 100 zeros,
a googolplex is 1 followed by a googol zeros.

In other words (read numbers....),
like googol=10^100 (^= raised to the power of)
googolplex=10^(10^100).

sorry if it's a but technical. Just a clarification.

as I recall, back in the days when the UK still treated a billion as 1 plus 12 zeros, "milliard" was Brit-speak for 1 plus 9 zeros.

> Looking at the pictures I think that Richard Branson has a much nicer beard. I did read somewhere that it is impossible
to be successful in the USA if you have a beard.

Own up those who proudly possess a beard. Rubrick? Twusm (I think not), David 108 ...

Whoa! I just stumbled on this now (I've been away since June 20th). Nope. No beard - never have and probably never will. Just some occasional stubble from lack of regular shaving. Every girlfriend I have ever had has disliked beards so I humoured them and kept a clean jaw. I suppose that's incentive for never growing one in the future!!!

Apparently this thread has twisted into beards...

At any rate, here is one point where Jo and I disagree:
keep thyself unshaven, 'Brick Dear. The better to be seen and caressed!
I have, on a few occasions, kissed a
bush-face--most unpleasant!! Prickly!! Ick.

No beard have I, but of another's beer would I willingly partake.
