$23,148,855,308,184,500 For a Pack of Cigarettes


This surely is the most expensive pack of cigarettes: $23,148,855,308,184,500 - that is $23 quadrillion (£14 quadrillion) - many times the US national debt. How did this happen? No one knows really.

Why he was charged that much.

Yes, it is known how he was charged this much. Convert the number into hex and you get a bunch of 20's. 20's in hex translate as a 'space' character. What basically happened was that instead of having zeroes inputted, he got spaces, translating numerically into an astronomical number.
