Pro se lawsuit demands 2 undecillion dollars

by Walter Olson on May 16, 2014

An undecillion is 1,000 decillion, a decillion being represented by a 1 with thirty-three zeroes after it, which means an undecillion would have thirty-six zeroes. A pro se litigant is demanding that amount from Au Bon Pain, the City of New York, and various other defendants over alleged indignities that took place at LaGuardia Airport and elsewhere. [Lowering the Bar, including a discussion of earlier lawsuits with demands in the quadrillions and septillions; XKCD with a discussion and cartoon of just what it would take to reach a total of 2 undecillion dollars, culminating in a galaxy filled with Ted Olsons]

Dude sues for 2 undecillion dollars, settles for 20% off his next meal.

A galaxy filled with Ted Olsons? I’m not sure if that’s supposed to give me the warm fuzzies or send a chill up my spine. :)
