    Man charged 23 quadrillion dollars for a pack of smokes

    [size=13pt]NH man swipes debit card for smokes, charged 23 quadrillion dollars (plus $15 overdraft fee)[/size]

    Associated Press

    MANCHESTER, N.H. - A New Hampshire man says he swiped his debit card at a gas station to buy a pack of cigarettes and was charged over 23 quadrillion dollars. Josh Muszynski checked his account online a few hours later and saw the 17-digit number — a stunning $23,148,855,308,184,500 (twenty-three quadrillion, one hundred forty-eight trillion, eight hundred fifty-five billion, three hundred eight million, one hundred eighty-four thousand, five hundred dollars).

    Muszynski says he spent two hours on the phone with Bank of America trying to sort out the string of numbers and the $15 overdraft fee.

    I saw that on the news and got a chuckle out of it. You would think that software would catch the fact that he just spent more in a day than the human race combined has spent since Christ quit wearing sandals.

    The Overdraft fee was a nice touch. I was glad to see there were no escalator clauses kicking in after he was overdrawn by more than a billion. I was afraid they might kick the fee up to 20 dollars or more once it got that high.

    The sales tax on that one pack of cigarettes would have paid for a new stadium for the vikings.
