South Carolina Inmate Jonathan Riches Hits Michael Vick With ‘$63,000,000,000 Billion Dollar’ Lawsuit Alleging Al Qaeda Ties.
from Fox News:
Riches alleges that Vick stole two white mixed pit bull dogs from his home in Holiday, Fla., and used them for dogfighting operations in Richmond, Va. The complaint goes on to allege that Vick sold the dogs on eBay and “used the proceeds to purchase missiles from the Iran government.”
The complaint also alleges that Vick would need those missiles because he pledged allegiance to Al Qaeda in February of this year.
“Michael Vick has to stop physically hurting my feelings and dashing my hopes,” Riches writes in the complaint.
This is not a typo in Fox news. He actually wrote $63,000,000,000 billion.
It isn’t quite a gazillion but that is a lot of cash! What do you call 63,000,000,000,000,000,000? You could call it $63 thousand trillion or $63 sextillion, but that is more money than exists in the entire world today. The GDP for the entire world is estimated at $48.2 trillion by the World Bank. Mr. Riches is only asking for 1,300 times more money than existed in the 2006.
I suppose he could be preparing for a long legal battle and is planning ahead for inflation. But seriously, even I am not that pessimistic!
I wonder if he will settle for a quadrillion?
So here is what I am going to do. If he wins, I am going to sue Mr. Riches for the mental confusion he has put me through in trying to wrap my head around this number. Maybe I can net a cool $5 trillion for my efforts. I think that will help me get through my mental crisis. I might even give some to Larry.
