That is excellent. I'mma send it out to my people.

I actually learned in one of my math classes at university... it was either in History of Mathematics or Discrete Math, I forget which. But anyhow, I learned that *most people* (read: not math geeks) do not comprehend the significance of the zeroes in a figure above one million. It just seems like gobbledy gook to them. Kind of like saying, "a gajillion" instead of saying a real number. They just know it's some big fucking number, period. So, what you posted above is probably how most people need to see the math. Pretty cool.
