One in an “undecillion”

The dictionary defines the word “undecillion” as a cardinal number represented by one followed by 36 zeros, according to the Association of Mature American Citizens.

It also is the dollar amount sought by a disgruntled New Yorker who sued the city and several other named and unnamed respondents for what the New York Post described as a “fabulously frivolous” variety of claims.  They included a dog bite while riding a bus and invasion of privacy when he was allegedly photographed by an unidentified woman while being treated at a local hospital.

The suit certainly ranks as one of the oddest lawsuits of 2014, if not the most ridiculous of the year.  As the newspaper pointed out, there is not that much money on planet Earth.
