From a reader: “How about (9!)^(9!)^(9!)?”

Yep, that beats my footling little 9^9^9. Must have forgotten to take my

math pill this morning.

The number of digits in (9!)^(9!)^(9!) is very large. It starts

“3,584,483,721,901,355,569,082,540,344,914…” and continues for another

2,017,497 digits.

That’s not the number: that’s THE NUMBER OF DIGITS IN THE NUMBER.
