And I Thought My Phone Bills Were High...

This poor guy got a phone bill for $218,000,000,000,000 (that's $218 trillion), and he's only got 10 days to pay.

For that price I hope his DSL is really, REALLY fast! :-)

That's a lot of phone sex! As in, he's getting screwed by his phone company!
maybe he was calling the WhiteHouse....then he could forward the bill to the NSA
Oh, sometimes they just add a few zeros and no one notices.
It looks even worse in Malaysian ringgits - 806,400,000,000,000.01. Got a nice ring to it, though. I'm sure Telekom Malaysia likes the sound of all that ringing, too.
Seems to me that 816 trillion anything would overflow somebody's buffer, but I guess not. Or maybe, that's how we came up with that number. Guy paid off his father's bill; Telekom Malaysia subtracted a few too many ringgits; the amount went negative; got shoved into an integer; sign got lost; and BANG...816 trillion!

Now guess what I do for a living...
$218 trillion. Holy cow. That must be a lot of phone calls to the moon.

The moon? Hell, for that price you should get a great per minute rate to Alpha Centuari on the big dish at Arecibo.
Maybe he just has a R-E-A-L-L-Y bad phone porn addiction?
