Economical numbers

"There are 10^11 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it's only a hundred billion. It's less than the national deficit! We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we should call them economical numbers".
-Richard Feynman, physicist, Nobel laureate (1918-1988).

Haha good one! Feynman never fails to amuse us with his eccentric humour.
