Tea-drinker par excellence

The world's biggest lie

A fake countess from where I live described her fortune as "300 followed by 41 zeros" presumably pounds (that's thirty tredecillion according to this website). It's even a lot in Zimbabwean dollars. Let's call it $4*10^45. That's quite some going given that the number of stars in the known universe is around 10^20 (give or take a few noughts).

The monetary value of the world, pre-crash was around $40 trillion (4*10^13).

So for each star in the known universe she claimed to have about a trillion (1*10^12) times more than the wealth of our world.

I suppose she avoided people who could do maths.
