I found a Numberphile video where they first "sing a Google" (which is one followed by 100 zeros) and then fail to sing a Googleplex (which is ten to the Google power). Of course, this is all accompanied by ukulele.

Who says mathematicians aren't creative.

I found it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5JOAoiX1LHA
I think I learned something. I probably read about 95% of David Foster Wallace's "Everything and More".

Mark Twain once said that he didn't give a damn about a man who couldn't spell a word but one way.

Not to be overly pedantic, but "O" (pronounced 'oh') is a letter, "0" (pronounced zero, in America anyway) is a number.

I don't mean to sound like the forum police or anything, but why is this thread in the Uke Talk section?

Because the lady singing the song is playing a uke.
