  • Nice article. I also enjoyed dodging those pop up ads. Its like a video game when trying to navigate through the boxes and closing them while trying read the article. This was fun!

      Yeah, that's ugly. Most of the times, even home page has this 'in-your-face' ad .

    So, now I know where MY 92 quadrillion $$ went!

    Guess I'm not going to Maui this weekend.
    I HATE it when this happens!

    As a responsible citizen, I would pay the TAX first. Maybe of the next 50 years too. Then I'll buy a space shuttle and fly my butt of to Jupiter. Bigger is good. You like big things don't you?

    WOW. That would be nice if that money was actually his.

    I once logged into my bank account "Actually it was a few days ago" and saw that there had been a deposit of 9 million dollars.

    I knew it had to be a mistake. And it was sadly.

    Interesting story.

    I use Paypal and have always been a happy customer. I feel it's one of those companies that just has much more to give and might be better suited to be spun-off to operate as an independent company once again.

    I'd love to know the details behind this. That number surely isn't random. Is it the sum of all transactions or something?

      It's the sum of the money in the PayPal freezer.

      It will take 180 days to thaw.

    FIRST, I think the paper got it WRONG! THEY said:

    92,233,720,368,547,800

    I contend it might have been APPROX:

    92,233,720,368,547,800e+2

    Maybe they left off the last two places as pennies.

    So what is it? ******ZERO*******! OK, OK, it is the ONES COMPLEMENT of zero on a 64 bit unsigned binary number.

    BTW it was only reported. When he checked his balance, it was 0.

      The world's GDP isnt even anywhere near that amount.

      Its just like that banker who was helping a client do a transaction and he fell aslp on the keyboard pressing the "2" button.
      Thus making it $222222222222222222222222.

      lool.
