Bank Claim that is Out of this World


news.bbc.co.uk

US bank customer Dalton Chiscolm could learn on Friday if he is one step closer to becoming the world's first ever billion-trillionaire.

Mr Chiscolm sued Bank of America in Manhattan's federal court in August for "$1,784 billion trillion", in a complaint that boiled down to poor customer service.

The actual number, 1,784 billion trillion, is equal to 1.784 multiplied by 10 to the 24th power, or roughly 1,784 followed by 21 zeroes... this number is called a Yotta.

You gotta love this guy. He's not one for half measures.

I think he's a bit upset with the Bank of America. But frankly, who cares what the issue is - almost every sentence in the article is quotable; it just runs out of expletives!

So what can we learn from this? The size of Mr Chiscolm's ego? Is it just a matter of hubris - or have we misjudged the fellow? Maybe there's more to this than meets the eye: maybe he needs $1,784 billion trillion, and we should give the guy a break?

Anyways, the way the economy is going maybe we need to get used to such numbers. (Coming soon to a burger chain near you...)

So, people are living in tents and starving to death while he sits on trillions of dollars? That's cold. No one needs that kind of money.

He probably has enough money to pay off the national debt. Such a patriot...

Check out the little box which has 5 little snippets of info (near the top of the page).

We're talking A LOT more than the national debt...

You guys do understand that he doesn't have that money, right?

He has sued for that amount. He hasn't won or wasn't awarded anything. Probably won't be either, it's another ridiculous law suit that hopefully will be thrown out of court.

If it isn't you can kiss goodbye to the entire global financial system.

It's game, set & match to the NWO. (Via the back gate.)

While we were all watching the G20...

That's a yotta money.

Sorry, couldn't resist. On a more serious note, wow!

I think he's doing it to make a statement. If the government can make up arbitrarily huge amounts of money and just take it from the American taxpayers to give to the banks, then why shouldn't the regular people be allowed to make up arbitrarily huge amounts of money and demand that the banks give these ridiculous sums of money to them?

Edit to add:

The way our government works, he'll probably win and then Congress will pass another bailout package to pay for it. Meanwhile, somewhere, somebody who knows math will be putting a shotgun in his mouth...

Good point.
Could be a new form of Robin Hood.

I hope he ravishes BoA.

And then, I hope he moves to Fiji and spends his money on whores, drugs, and a nice house.

I could care less what he does with the money if he wins it, all I know is that one less corporation down, many to go.

I always said if I sued I would sue big not for the money but the publicity in order to smear the name of whomever I was suing.

BOA was one I would love to sue but disassociated myself with them before they really ticked me off. Not to mention I was told by a lawyer you could have charges and fines placed against you for wasting the courts time and money with an insane amount on the suit.

So I guess I'll have to see what comes of this.

Or nobody eats, works both ways. Any system that deals in black and whites is destine to fail. Either everyone succeeds or nobody succeeds, everyone has health care, or nobody has health care. Etc. Etc. It will always end up with nobody having it because no system can support everyone forever.

You can support some of the people some of the time, a few people most of the time, but you can't support all of the people all of the time.

The first system works some of the time, the second system works most of the time, and the third system is always eventually going to fail, aka it works none of the time since it collapses.

[EDIT: Just to elaborate, the first system that works some of the time is often the type of system that has a rather neutral system. You will see just as many hard times and good times, and its a rather unstable system that doesn't take the country anywhere. Places like Britain. It's not going to fall off the map or into the dark ages, but its not going to become the next rival super power. It's a rather neutral system that is making its way into the third system which I will describe later. The second system works most of the time, and that is the type of system that will see hard times, but overall, the country continues forward, grows, becomes a rival for super power status, and has a promising future. That would be like mid 20th century United States, current day India and China, and countries like that. This is not to say they are promising in the civil rights area, merely as a successful nation. The third system may appear to be successful but is bound to fail. Nations like current day United States, most European nations, Canada, etc. Although on the surface they appear to have a stable system, it isn't so. The way they operate will eventually lead to their collapse as functioning societies. They are not long term strategies for survival.]


As for the guy, well, I doubt he actually thinks hes going to get that kind of money. Its a matter of raising awareness about the case.

he's just makin a point...if they can come up with huge random sums of money, so can he

There is absolutely no way that he will win that kind of money.

He Sues For = 1,784,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
Divided by
National Debt = 12,000,000,000,000

That sum would pay off the national debt 14,866,666 times over.
Nowhere near that much money exists in the WHOLE WORLD!

Who knows, maybe he'll settle for a trillion

Okay, as far as I can tell, this guy is not a millionaire. So what's with all the accusations about his character?

This is clearly a statement being made, a chance to show how ludicrous everything is.

And no, he won't win this case.
Even if the courts sided with him to join in the fun and games of making such a point, all involved would end up spending their entire lives fighting legal battles and no money would ever change hands.

It's an amusing story, nothing more.
