@vegaseat, i may buy one just to go up to bill gates and say, "HA! I am a trillionaire! What now!" :)

If you wait till April, they will most likely print a 100 quatrillion Dollar bill. That's the way hyperinflation goes.

Black holes grow, scientific theory suggests, as they pull in mass that comes close to them. However, as mass is absorbed, it will be heated creating radiation pressure, which pushes the mass away from the black hole. It has been believed this would limit the growth rate of black holes.

The fly in the ointment is a newly discovered giant black hole that is 12 billion times the size of the Sun, much too large to fit the theory.
